Description

SAVE THE DATE to attend the kickoff of Well-Read Black Girl Grand Rapids Summer Series WEDNESDAY, JUNE 12th at the New Hotel Mertens in Downtown Grand Rapids. This will be a casual meet and greet during Happy Hour where we will share our exciting plans for the Well-Read Black Girl Summer Series over drinks, and learn about each other’s reading interests. Then, if weather permits and there is space to accommodate our group, we plan to end the night with a "Wine Down" at the hotel's rooftop lounge Haute where DJ SuperDre is scheduled to spin live music during "The Sunset."

Everyone will be on their own for drinks and if going up on the rooftop, there is a $10 cash cover. Let us know if you can make the date with a RSVP by JUNE 3rd. Thank you and we look forward to you being a part of this experience with us!
