Michael Moore sent the following email to State Theatre supporters:
My book tour finally comes home to Traverse City next Monday night, November 28th — and it’s a fundraiser for the State Theatre!
I will speak and read from my new book, “Here Comes Trouble,” at 7 pm at the State Theatre. Admission is just $5 and tickets are now on sale online, at the State Theatre box office, or by calling 231-947-3446. 100 percent of the gross will go to the State Theatre, as will $5 of every book sold Monday night.
Back in September, I launched a nationwide fundraiser for the State Theatre with my new book. I announced that anyone who bought my book from one of three local northern Michigan bookstores — Brilliant Books of Suttons Bay & TC, McLean & Eakin Booksellers of Petoskey and Saturn Books of Gaylord — would receive an autographed first edition, and the bookstore they purchased it from would donate $5 per book to the State Theatre. I asked my fans across the country to not only support my favorite indie bookstores, but also to support my project here, the State Theatre.
The response has been overwhelming. Thousands of books have been sold and thousands of dollars have been raised for the State. And more first edition signed copies of “Here Comes Trouble” will be available next Monday night at the event.
So come on down to the State on November 28th and see me! I’ve got lots to share from my travels around the country (we are living in interesting and exciting times!) and I can’t wait to read some of these stories (nearly all set in Michigan) to you.
It will be good to be home.
