        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 eighth instalment we have a duo of readers: Detroit historians and film makers Pete Kalinski and Kevin Walsh.

Pete Kalinski

Pete is a proud Spartan (and Wayne State Warrior) whose profession is Archivist and History Instructor at a local community college where he’s been teaching Michigan History (along with US History and World History) for over 10 years. A self-described “history nerd,” Pete has dedicated his life to constantly remind people that history matters…so pay attention.

Kevin Walsh

Kevin is a media educator, photographer and freelance video producer.  His blog is featured regularly in Huffington Post and his podcast can be found on iTunes.  His 2006 secondary media production text, Video Direct, is used in over 40 states.

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
