Please join St. Clair Shores to host first literary walk: Event's founder, @MLLIEBLER says literature is accessible to everyone@ginaljoseph

This past week alone he was busy doing a library tour in northern Michigan and an interview with C-SPAN to promote a collection of short stories about legendary Detroit musicians along with a visit to the studio where Eminem recorded all of his legendary albums. He's been a professor at Wayne State University since 1980 and known for his passion to teach young people how to hone their creative writing skills and the importance of literary arts and he’s traveled the world -- from Russia, China and Afghanistan to Finland, Italy, Canada and most 50 states -- in order to read and perform his work for people of all ages and cultures. 
So, it comes as no surprise that he would organize and host the first annual St. Clair Shores Literary Walk by the Lake at Wahby Park, June 22 from 11:30 to 3:30 p.m.

"I started a literary walk 12 years ago in Chelsea," Liebler said, of the first event that brought nationally and locally-renowned authors together in order to highlight the power of literature and poetry in everyday life.
During the event attendees walk through the city and stop at various locations to hear readings. "If you've ever been to Chelsea you know it has lots of art galleries, cafes and of course, a great library," Liebler said. "It was the perfect city for something like this."
