To commemorate the 25th anniversary of the Contemporary American Authors Lecture series, we’ve made some snappy looking t-shirts. They are $15 and you can purchase them from Laurie Kopack: firstname.lastname@example.org or 313-927-1383.
This year we are featuring poet Terrance Hayes; he will conduct a master class for Detroit area high school students on Friday, April 19, 2013 at 10:30 a.m. That same evening, the public is welcome to attend the evening lecture at 8 p.m. which will be followed by a book signing. The event is free and open to the public.
In addition, to commemorate the series’ anniversary, there is an art exhibit in Marygrove’s Beyond Words Gallery featuring Michigan artists who explored the themes of the nationally renowned authors who presented public lectures at CAALS over the past 25 years. The exhibit is now open and runs until May 17, 2013.
