Remember being cozy under a blanket or cuddled up in your favorite library corner, listening while your teacher, librarian or parent read a book to you? We never really outgrow our love of hearing a good story read aloud so join us for Grown Folks Story Time!
Our host Patti Smith, creepy wordsmith Ken MacGregor, and others will share spooky stories including twists on childhood favorites. Costumes, pajamas, or a combination of the two are encouraged and there will be candy!
***This event is NOT for children; there will be adult language and content!***

Join us to celebrate the launch of Ann Arbor poet Simon Mermelstein's new poetry chapbook! ...And Pharaoh Hardened His Heart: Poems for the Trump Years is a wretched, Cassandra-like plea, a chronicle of fascism and cruelty, of gaslighting and narcissism, and the psychological endurance it takes to stay sane and compassionate in these times.

Simon Mermelstein's poetry has appeared in Atlanta Review, Hawai'i Pacific Review, RHINO, Spillway, HEArt Online, Drunk in a Midnight Choir, Third Wednesday, The MacGuffin, and many other places. He is currently the host and organizer of Ann Arbor Poetry. Signing to follow.


In Hapa Tales and Other Lies, Sharon H. Chang explores her Asian American and Mixed Race identity through the prism of returning to Hawai'i as a tourist. But what begins as a journey to discover herself turns into much more as she learns the true history of the islands, Hawai'i's Indigenous children, and the Native Hawaiian Sovereignty Movement.  This event is part of a monthly series in partnership with Les Go Social MM&T. The event begins with an open mic session when area poets can read their own work or share a favorite poem by another author in a welcoming atmosphere. Signing to follow.
