Levin will read from the book and sign copies, which will be available for purchase. Wine and cheese and other refreshments will be served. 

Set in and around Ferndale, “Crimes of Love” follows police detective Martin Preuss on a frantic search for a seven-year-old girl who has disappeared from the streets of Ferndale. Fast-paced storytelling and keen insights into the weaknesses that beset the human heart make this first Martin Preuss mystery impossible to put down.

Marygrove’s Science and Mathematics Department continues to grow as it welcomes Dr. Jennifer Tsui (pronounced “Sway”), a Michigan native who has explored the science realm as a student and researcher. Tsui will join Marygrove’s faculty as a full-time science professor for the 2012 Winter Semester.

Although Dr. Tsui has spent many years doing research, she prefers sociable environments, such as a classroom with her students.

I like more personal interaction than what normally happens in research," she said. "I want a more immediate impact on people, where research can take more time before you actually impact people’s lives. I spent a lot of time in little rooms with microscopes.”
