We would have Dinner, Dessert & Dancing with a cash bar.

Would you please take the time to tell us if you’d like to join the

Got Books? Help Strengthen Detroit’s Literary Community! #michlit #mwn #motownlit

Starting now until forever, it will be our mission  to try to collect 100, 000 books for the Metro Detroit Literary Community every year.

I know the impact of books in a home for a child and I want to give every home that doesn’t have books in Detroit some.

This sounds like an interesting challenge and I’m asking everyone to help me.

Motown Writers Group Monthly Meetup: Path of The Hero.. writing good characters JULY 13TH

 

Categories: MWN Events Only, Uncategorized | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , | Leave a comment

Big news! Big change! frm @LiteraryDetroit Trinosophes, Wed, June 25, 7-9pm. Free & awesome

We’ve got an amazing new location for tomorrow’s big event: storytelling and song with the Rust Belt Rising crew is hitting Trinosophes TOMORROW, Wednesday, June 25, 7-9pm. Free, and awesome. See you there!

Call it good old-fashioned Midwestern storytelling… with a kick.

Nic Esposito of The Head & The Hand Press is hitting the road with Philadelphia musician Todd Henkin from the band The Great Unknown for a series of performance-based storytelling and song showcasing the fascinating stories collected in The Rust Belt Rising Almanac. When this a-typical book talk comes to Detroit, we’re spotlighting Marissa Johnson-Valenzuela’s story on adapting to Detroit through the community in collective housing, as well as a micro-fiction piece about Hitsville, USA, and art inspired by recycled objects from Detroit artist Cindy LaFerle.

The Head & The Hand Press, a craft publisher in Philadelphia, is bringing this show to the city with the support of Literary Detroit.

The Rust Belt Rising Almanac is a collection of snapshots and stories from writers and artists in America’s Rust Belt Cities: escapes, remains, and models of growth. You’ll learn about projects that are working & the people who aren’t, find a road map for wandering, and green your thumb with an industrial soil-strength planting guide. The almanac may not serve strictly as a meteorological or agricultural guide, but it will help to measure the kind of atmospheric pressure felt between jobs, between communities, between the friends who are still here and the ones not so lucky, bound together by a common question: what’s next for the rust belt?

LiteraryDetroit

@LiteraryDetroit follows you

We are cultivating Detroit as a distinctive literary city with extraordinary public events that connect readers with writers.
