For Immediate Release




Lansing, Mich. -- The Historical Society of Michigan (HSM) is pleased to
announce the redesign of its flagship magazine, Michigan History, starting
with the January/February 2016 issue. New and enhanced features, such as
"Made in Michigan" and "Trips by Topic," have been wrapped up in a refreshed
design that make the bi-monthly publication easier for readers to navigate
through the content.

           "We are very excited about the redesign of our flagship
publication," commented publisher Larry J. Wagenaar, who also serves as
Executive Director of the Historical Society of Michigan. "Our redesign
team, led by Michigan History editor Patricia Majher, did an outstanding job
in updating the look and feel of the country's most successful state history
magazine and made it an even more compelling read."

Edited for an audience of popular history enthusiasts, Michigan History
brings to life the exciting stories of Michigan people, places, and events
and their impact on the state, the nation, and the world. 

The updated magazine includes three new features. The first, "Made in
Michigan" highlights great things that originated in the Great Lakes
State-from the first practical highway snowplow and the first professional
hockey league to cat litter, cornflakes and cubicles. "Trips by Topic"
suggests themed tours of Michigan museums-for example, aviation museums,
fishing museums, or Native-American museums-based on HSM's Historic Michigan
Travel Guide. And "Wise Words" contains quotes by Michiganians or about
Michigan on the many topics that have shaped our history. In addition, the
book review section has been expanded to include Michigan history-related
music and movies as well as books. 

The magazine is published six times a year and is available for $24.95 for a
one-year subscription and $41.95 for a two-year subscription. Orders may be
placed by visiting  <http://www.hsmichigan.org/michiganhistory>
www.hsmichigan.org/michiganhistory or by calling (800) 366-3703. Individual
issues may be purchased for $6.95 at all Meijer and Barnes & Noble locations
as well as at many independent bookstores throughout the state.

The Historical Society of Michigan is the state's oldest cultural
organization, founded in 1828 by territorial governor Lewis Cass and
explorer Henry Schoolcraft. A nongovernmental nonprofit, the Society focuses
on publications, conferences, education, awards and recognition programming,
and support for local history organizations to preserve and promote
Michigan's rich history.
