[ARCHIVED] Library buzzes with local literature

Book lovers should prepare themselves for a shot of homebrewed culture. On Thursday, April 20, residents are invited to enjoy local authors perform open mic readings during a book sale.

“The Sterling Heights Public Library is always looking for ways to support our local writers,” says Jason Groth, the library’s Public Relations and Programs Coordinator. “This open mic book sale is a great way to introduce our authors to the community at large. It’s rather exciting.” adds Groth. 

The event will take place in the library’s programming center on Thursday, April 20 from 6:00 to 8:30 p.m. Residents can listen to readings, chat with local authors, and purchase signed copies of their works.
 
Inspiration for the event came from members of the library’s Creative Writers Workshop. Terry Hojnacki, the workshop’s facilitator, says, "Open Mic events are so much fun! It's like an art show for authors. I'm looking forward to meeting local authors and hearing them share the writings."
