Perhaps you’ve heard about the event we’re planning for May. It’s called the Storymaker’s Dinner, and if that’s not enough for you:

  • It takes place at Zingerman’s Roadhouse, and if that’s not enough for you,
  • Dave Eggers will be on hand to talk about his new book, Zeitoun, and if that’s not enough for you,
    It features a New Orleans inspired menu, and if that’s not enough for you,
  • One of our very favorite teachers, Quinn Strassel from Huron High, will be on hand to discuss our work in his classroom this year, and if that’s not enough for you,
  • Some of Quinn’s students* will be on hand to share stories from our latest chapbook, Talking Back, Giving Thanks, and Why It Never Pays to Drink the Haterade, and if that’s not enough for you,
  • The money raised will go toward our next in-school publication, and if that’s not enough for you,
  • If you’ll pardon my saying, what’s the MATTER with you? Because we’re *pretty sure* this event has it, well, ALL.

The Storymaker’s Dinner takes place on Thursday, May 6 at 6:30pm at Zingerman’s Roadhouse, 2501 Jackson Ave in Ann Arbor. Space is limited, so do not tarry! You can click here to order your tickets right now!

* Last Friday night, we teamed up with our friends in the Michigan Education Reform Club for a tribute to education, where MERC members, substitute teachers, teachers, and our very own Huron High students read their work. Check out this picture of Justin, also known as Fuzz, who wrote one of our very favorite pieces in the chapbook about being evicted from his home and the affect it had on his schooling:
