Governor Gretchen Whitmer is Coming to Chelsea

Serendipity Books announced it is “thrilled to welcome Governor Gretchen Whitmer to Chelsea in support of her autobiography, ‘True Gretch’.”

Serendipity Books said Whitmer will be joined in conversation by Jeff Daniels, actor, playwright, and founder of The Purple Rose Theatre. The ticketed event will take place at The Purple Rose Theatre Company at 7 p.m. on Monday, July 22.

“Written with Whitmer’s trademark sense of humor and straight-shooting style, ‘True Gretch’ is not only a compelling account of her remarkable journey, but also a blueprint for anyone who wants to make a difference in their community, their country, or the world. It is a testament to the power of humor, perseverance, and compassion in the face of darkness,” Serendipity Books’ announcement said.

The book is described as an unconventionally honest, personal, and funny account of Whitmer’s “remarkable life and career, full of insights that guided her through a global pandemic, showdowns with high-profile bullies, and even a kidnapping and assassination plot.”
