- Sneak a peek at the Made In Michigan Writers Series Bus, set to embark on a statewide journey Sat. May 18
- Rub elbows with WSU Press authors Chris Dombrowski, Ron Reiki, Jack Ridl, Gloria Whelan and more
Join us for an early evening celebration at Midtown's legendary Old Miami as WSU Press, Detroit's oldest nonprofit publisher, fills the venue with its literary delights, transforming the city’s best backyard into a lit lover’s paradise. Rub elbows with the Press’s most accomplished Michigan authors (such as Chris Dombrowski, Jack Ridl, and National Book Award winner Gloria Whelan) while you sip (or slug) libations from the bar and munch (or scarf) tasty grilled bites. Then let the funky lit-fusion of M. L. Liebler & The Coyote Monk Poetry Band drag you to the dance floor.
Young or old, book lover or poet, there’s no better way to support Lit in the Mit!
