Made in Michigan Launch

Yesterday was the launch of Wayne State University Press’ Made in Michigan Writers series at the Scarab club. Jack Ridl, from the west side of the state, was absolutely charming reading from his book Broken Symmetry. Detroit’s Vivee Francis moved the crowd to tears, fury, and shame with her poems about the civil war from Blue-Tail Fly. Both authors will be attending the upcoming Ann Arbor Book Festival and the Ludington Poetry Festival. I will upload pictures when I have a chance. I am not one to read poetry, but to have them read and explained by the artists themselves is always such a treat.
