GROSSE POINTE Woods — John Durant, a former Grosse Pointe Farms resident and alum of University Liggett School, will visit his hometown for a book signing at Barnes & Noble in Grosse Pointe Woods.

Durant’s book, “The Paleo Manifesto: Ancient Wisdom for Lifelong Health,” was released Sept. 17.

Durant, who lives in New York City, detailed the Paleo “caveman” lifestyle and diet in the book, but is quick to point out it’s not a diet book.

“It’s been a lot of fun,” Durant said of more than two years of work on the book. “It wasn’t easy, but I’m happy with it.”

Durant studied evolutionary psychology at Harvard. He founded Paleo NYC and Barefoot Runners NYC.

His work and lifestyle have been featured in the New York Times, on NPR, the Colbert Report and CBC Radio.

Durant will sign and discuss the book at 1 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 5.

The Barnes & Noble is located at 19221 Mack Ave., Grosse Pointe Woods.
