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 story-time.

Interesting Things Read by Interesting People is a monthly event at The Detroit History Club. For the twentieth installment, our reader is Chris Tait.

Christopher Tait is a musical legend in Detroit, he has written and performed for the band Electric Six since 2002. Spill Magazine calls Electric Six, ”One of the hardest working bands today. The interesting thing is that their music does not suffer from their workload. They seem to love what they do and that is making music. A band that has done the impossible; remained important for a decade and a half.” When off tour Chris can be found at Ascension Brighton (a treatment center outside of Detroit, MI) working with others who are struggling with addiction issues. Chris is the founder of Passenger, A nonprofit focused on helping touring musicians in addiction recovery since 2015. Prior to founding Passenger, he was a freelance curator for Beats/Apple Music in Culver City, CA

A snack and Vernor’s floats will be served along side Chris’ reading.

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
