I Got to Keep Moving by Bill Harris launch party

Wayne State University Press
Celebrated Detroit writer, professor, and Kresge Foundation Eminent Artist Award recipient Bill Harris takes on the Civil War in his latest collection of short stories.

Written in three parts, I Got to Keep Moving is an exploration of preservation and memory, and aims to serve as source material for future conversations. To celebrate the launch, Harris will read from his latest collection and will be accompanied by musician and storyteller Rev. Robert Jones, Sr.
