Don't Miss the Sixth Annual Storymakers Dinner!

Monday, March 23, 2015

Save the date to join our friends at 826michigan for the sixth annual Storymakers Dinner fundraiser on Friday, April 24. For the first time, the popular event will be held at Zingerman’s Cornman Farms (8540 Island Lake Drive) in Dexter, Michigan. Dinner will begin at 7:00 pm and is preceded by a V.I.P. reception at 6:00 pm with critically acclaimed author Bonnie Jo Campbell, National Book Award finalist for American Salvage! 

Tickets are available online at storymakers.brownpapertickets.com for $100 and $200 (includes VIP author reception and special seating). All proceeds will directly benefit 826michigan’s free writing and tutoring programs reaching more than 3,000 students in Ann Arbor, Ypsilanti, and Detroit.

About the event: Storymakers Dinner is a celebration that honors important writers and their stories, from nationally known novelists to emerging young authors in the community. Each spring, 826michigan partners with Zingerman's Community of Businesses to bring together a noted person of letters, a student who takes part in their writing and tutoring programs, and more than one hundred friends committed to 826michigan's—and local students'—success.
