The Minervini Group, developer of the Village at Grand Traverse Commons, and Mission Point Press have joined with the Grand Traverse Heritage Council in an effort to create a new home for the study and appreciation of the history of the long-shuttered Traverse City State Hospital.

"How Thin the Veil" by Jack KerkhoffDuring the introduction of their latest offering, “How Thin the Veil – A Memoir of 45 Days in the Traverse City State Hospital” by Jack Kerkhoff, Mission Point Press announced that one dollar from the sale of each book would go to the Traverse City State Hospital Heritage Fund. The fund was created and managed by the Grand Traverse Cultural Center and is intended to help underwrite the eventual creation of a museum display depicting the history of the State Hospital and its value to the people of Michigan and the Grand Traverse region. The book is available at local bookstores and directly from Mission Point Press.The Grand Traverse Center
