Free

A Good Show: an Afternoon with Tuf Francis

Bring a chair, blanket or anchor your boat nearby and enjoy an afternoon of music and conversation with  Dr. Tuf Francis. Part story-telling, part concert, part sing-a-long, join with Tuf as he explores the concept of goodness, what it means to be good, and share what he has learned about leading a benevolent life. The event is free. A love offering will be taken to benefit the Samaritan Counseling Center Client Assistance Fund.
Dr. Tuf Francis (pronounced toof) is a professor, scholar, public speaker, active musician, and family man. He began his musical career nearly 30 years ago as a vocalist and playing a single Middle Eastern drum, called a derbeki. Since then, he has added acoustic guitar and drums to his repertoire. He played in several bands and has recorded music for almost 25 years. His primary musical influences include Pink Floyd, Ani Difranco, early Genesis, and the Beatles. Tuf taught high school social studies for 10 years in Toledo, Ohio. He earned his doctorate from the University of Michigan in 2013 (inevitably making him an insufferable Michigan football fan) and is currently an associate professor and coordinator of the secondary teacher education program at Oakland University. His research focuses on initial teacher preparation and social studies education, focusing on the development of skilled practice in teachers.  Learn more about Tuf and his work on Twitter (@TufFrancis) and www.tuffrancis.com.
