The Faygo Book Launch Party!

The Faygo Book is the story of Detroit’s beloved soda pop and how it has remained the last bottler standing in "pop alley" thanks to its pioneering techniques, rambunctious rainbow of flavors, and a fiercely loyal community. Joe Grimm carefully measures out the ingredients for a successful beverage company that has forged a bond with a city and its residents for more than a century in spite of dicey economic times in a boom-and-bust town. These stories and facts will tickle the taste buds and memories of Detroiters and Faygo lovers everywhere.

Join us in celebrating a Detroit classic at an all-ages book launch party at Gleaners Community Food Bank of Southeastern Michigan on Wednesday, October 10th from 5-8pm! The event is free, but we strongly encourage making a monetary or non-perishable food donation to Gleaners at the door. Admission includes Faygo pop, Better Made chips, and Detroit and Chicago style hot dogs—courtesy of Hippo’s (while supplies last). The evening’s program will have remarks from the author.

So plan on stopping by — it’ll be sweet!

Plenty of free, on-site parking | The book will be available for purchase and signing
