The DWW Board of Directors is happy to announce four things:
FIRST: DWW Historian has arranged for a private tour of the Detroit Public Library,including the room which contains the DWW archives, and a luncheon. The tour will be on April 12, and is for members only. DWW will pay the tour costs, we will each pay or own luncheon costs ($13/person). You are invited to create a poem or SHORT piece that focuses on some aspect of life in Detroit, to be read at the event. Please SAVE THE DATE. You will be receiving a formal invitation within the next few weeks.
