SORT BY Relevancy
It was several years ago that I first heard about the History Publishing Company. Rather than be a general publisher owner Don Bracken had a vision, the books would be in the genre 'Living History', Idealy the authors would write first hand accounts of their personal experience in global and national events. HPC has expanded their imprints to Todays Books which looks at modern society and Chronology Books a chance to meet vicariously meet interesting people through their life experiences.
Don himself is no slouch at the writing table, one of my favorite books is Words of War. The Civil War is an important part of our herritage, yet most books, particularly text books tend to offer a rather bland and often onesided view. Don took a unique approach, compare the popular newspaper accounts of the day? One from the North and one from the South.
I am looking forward to catching up with Don Bracken.
Jean Maurie and Maggie Lukowski are excited to be talking with Michael Bracken.

Matt Austin grew up in the Detroit downriver area with a guitar-playing father but he didn’t gain interest in playing until his uncle from Texas moved to Michigan. He was inspired first by the sound of the blues guitar greats Stevie Ray Vaughn and Jimi Hendrix. Matt later fell in love with this new age country genre that is growing by leaps and bounds.
In 2013 along with releasing his new EP Matt Austin, was also direct support for Lee Brice, Brantley Gilbert, Uncle Kracker, Aaron Lewis, Josh Gracin, Charlie Worsham, Chase Rice and Jerrod Niemann.
MA has also performed in 2013 to thousands at many of the great country music festivals in Michigan such as 99.5 WYCD’s downtown hoedown and the Faster Horses series at Michigan international speedway.
