To promote his new book and help save his hometown library, author and filmmaker Michael Moore (Bowling for Columbine, Fahrenheit 9/11) has donated 2000 copies of his new book, Here Comes Trouble (Grand Central), for a library fundraiser in Flint, Michigan. The book will be on sale that night only for $12. while Moore does a signing with all proceeds to benefit the Flint Public Library. From an area NBC affiliate:
“As a kid there really wasn’t a more exciting place than the library. To walk into the library and just have everything in the world on thes shelves.
Moore said he was a regular at the Davison and Flint Public Libraries growing up.
“My mother taught me to read and write before kindergarten and that happened because she took us to the library all the time.”
Moore will be at Flint’s Whiting Auditorium tonight.
