Join us as we showcase some of the world’s most dynamic authors.
We invite you to come out and be a part of our 2013 Celebrate Authors Series taking place at library locations throughout the city. This is your opportunity to hear from a wide range of talented writers as they share with you the very motivations that helped them create their literary jewels.
This series is free and open to the public. For more information call us at 313-481-1339.
