What is Independent Bookstore Day?

Independent Bookstore Day is a one-day national party that takes place at indie bookstores across the country on the last Saturday in April.  Every store is unique and independent, and every party is different. But in addition to authors, live music, cupcakes, scavenger hunts, kids events, art tables, readings, barbecues, contests, and other fun stuff, there are exclusive books and literary items that you can only get on that day. Not before. Not after. Not online.

To see past exclusives, check out our archives.

Why are we celebrating independent bookstores?

Glen Lake: Writing Camp Heaven! #Peninsula #Writers June 15-22, 2019 #michiganwriters #michlit

Glen Lake: Writing Camp Heaven!

Next Summer Retreat at Glen Lake: June 15-22, 2019

View or Download: Glen Lake Retreat 2019 brochure in PDF format for all the details and registration information.

Every June, PW members have the opportunity to attend a week-long writing conference/retreat at Villa Glen, on the shores of Glen Lake.  For many members, this is the highlight of the PW experience: writers have opportunities to discuss their craft with others who share their passion, daily small group meetings offer help and support with specific pieces of writing, large group gatherings build camaraderie, and ample time for writing is always provided.  Several small, optional craft talks by members are offered throughout the week.  And there are many opportunities for informal discussion and activities.

 

In addition, each conference presents a professional writer as a keynote speaker; back for the 2017 keynote is poet Mary Ann Samyn.  In recent years, presentations from Laura Kasischke, Jack Driscoll, Heather Sellers and Gerry LaFemina have stimulated thought and discussion—and writing.  Also, each conference ends with a “read-around,” a gathering allowing a chance for everyone to hear a small sample of each writer’s work.

On April 13, United Way volunteers will pack bookboxes at Focus: HOPE.

Building on tradition

Volunteerism is a crucial, year-round part of what we do at United Way.

Our Seasons of Caring initiative offers a new way to give back every season. This spring, the focus will be on early childhood education and literacy.

In 2018, 7969 volunteers donated 22,907 hours to 483 projects. During National Volunteer Week alone, 402 people volunteered for a total of 925 hours. That’s an impact of $22,317 in donated labor.

Every year during National Volunteer Week, United Way for Southeastern Michigan celebrates volunteerism. When we bring corporate partners and individual volunteers together, we can tackle tough challenges and build stronger communities.
