        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.

Interesting Things Read by Interesting People is a monthly event at The Detroit History Club. For the seventh installment, our reader is Karen Dybis.

Karen Dybis, who graduated from the University of Michigan with a degree in English and in Communication in 1995, is a Metro Detroit writer who has blogged for Time magazine, worked the business desk at The Detroit News and many other publications. During her four years in Ann Arbor, she was an editor for The Michigan Daily.

She is the author of three books: "The Ford-Wyoming Drive-In: Cars, Candy and Canoodling in the Motor City," "Better Made in Michigan: The Salty Story of Detroit's Best Chip” about Detroit’s tasty potato-chip manufacturing history and “The Witch of Delray,” a look at a 1931 murder mystery set in Detroit’s Great Depression. Her latest book, "Strange Detroit,” is a travel guide to Detroit’s awesome and intriguing landmarks, architectural achievements and historical highlights. It is set to publish in Spring 2018.


A light breakfast along with coffee and mimosas will be served.

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
