Poetry Made In Michigan

Last week I attended the third annual Made In Michigan Writers Series party at the Magic Stick bar/concert venue.  In years past the event has been held in more literary environs: the Scarab Club, the Detroit Historical Museum.  The Magic Stick was an interesting experiment.  This year three new books of creative non-fiction were recognized along with gems from years past.  The author event, held earlier in the evening of April, 22nd was literary in nature, while the real treat followed when poetry and guitars got together to sparkle.  Readings from Conrad Hilberry were charming, romantic, biting, and endearingly naughty.  Janet Kaufman’s readings were appropriate on Earth Day with her eco-feminist style.  M.L. Liebler was lead singer for the opening band, read his own poetry, then recited to the musical accompaniment of the band High Strung.  I can’t wait to see what’s in store for next year.
