Henry Ford program July 10 at Dearborn Library

DEARBORN, – The public will have an opportunity to brush-up on Ford history when the Dearborn Library hosts the free program, “Henry Ford: His Life and Work” at 7 p.m., Wednesday, July 10, 2013 at Henry Ford Centennial Library Auditorium, 16301 Michigan Avenue, Dearborn.

The presenter, Mike Skinner, is known locally as the ultimate Fordophile. He is past president of the Dearborn and Grosse Point Historical Societies, and the Henry Ford Heritage Association, of which he is a founding member.

Skinner worked as a tour guide for The Henry Ford Estate for 34 years, and served on the advisory committee that directed the project to transfer nine hours of Ford films, including some Ford family home movies, to an introductory video for tours and fundraising. He has presented dozens of programs relating to the life of Henry Ford.

The program is generously sponsored by Friends of the Library-Dearborn (FOLD), a non-profit citizens group that supports the library by providing funding for library programs for patrons of all ages.
