stor·y time

noun: storytime

  1. a regular time at which a story is read aloud.

  2. a time when a story is told to a group of assembled people.

    1. Storytime precedes bedtime for some children.

    2. Many public libraries offer storytime on a regular schedule.

Storytime for adults is just that- It’s an hour and a half on a weekend morning to listen as an interesting person reads an interesting thing. After the reader finishes reading there’ll be a discussion and a bit of time for questions with the reader. The reader is announced but their choice of book, newspaper, poems, script, or anything else is kept secret until storytime.

A few lite snacks, mimosas and coffee will be served at no cost to guests.

Interesting Things Read by Interesting People is a monthly event at The Detroit History Club. For the fourteenth installment we have Karen F. Dimanche Davis.

With the closure in December of Marygrove College, professor Karen Dimanche Davis is releasing much of her eclectic 4000-book library into other hands. Some volumes date from her days as a graduate student at Wayne State University in the counter-culture days of the 1960s. Most, however, formed her working library at Marygrove College for 25 years, used to prepare lessons and lend to students in 35 different courses in nine different departments—as well as for special research and community projects. Karen’s reading will draw on a mélange of her favorites—poetry, fiction, history, and critical studies.

Rumor has it, guests of Interesting People Reading Interesting Things #10, will leave with an adopted book from the professor's legendary library.

Because The Detroit History Club operates as a members-only club, out of private homes, hidden spaces, and secret locations, you’ll need to join before being able to buy tickets to events. At checkout you’ll be asked if you are already a member; if not, select “New Member.” Membership to The Detroit History Club is five dollars per calendar year. Each person attending an event must have a membership of their own. Membership cards may be picked up at the first event you attend as a new member, and new cards are issued at the first event you attend each year. Parking is on-street and at your own risk (we’ve never had an issue, but the lawyer insists we have the disclaimer).

Detroit History Club events are for persons twenty-one years old and up. We drink, we swear, we talk about things, and we’d love for you to join us. Whether you come as a couple, a group, or a singleton, our events are designed to encourage you to make new friends, explore ideas, and learn- all while eating, drinking, dancing, and generally behaving in a way that makes us proud to call ourselves Detroiters. We would like to remind you that this event is taking place in a private home; your respect is greatly appreciated
