“Detroit Loves to Read!! What is Your Favorite Must-Read Book?”

DPL’s year-long 150th celebration continues with a special evening to celebrate the love of reading. 

Good books and great food – what a combination! Please join us for a “buffet” of good books and great food. 

Five special guests will “sell” their favorite must-read book to you. At the conclusion of the book talks, each audience member will cast their vote for the book they are most likely to read (or re-read). 

We all know there’s nothing better than talking about a good book. Please join us for an entertaining and engaging evening of book fun!

When: Friday, October 16, 2015  - 7 p.m. - 11 p.m.

Where: Detroit Public Library - Main Library, 5201 Woodward Avenue, Detroit, MI 48221
