Stories, Stories, Stories! from The Secret Society Of Twisted Storytellers #motownwriters #michlit



STORIES, STORIES, STORIES

Stories have the ability to move us, teach us, and bring out our emotions. A story can bring people together and help them to find common ground. It can also be used as an educational tool to learn about different cultures and customs. For businesses, storytelling instead of listing facts and figures, can be a powerful marketing opportunity.

 

Your challenge today: think about how you will use the power of storytelling to make a difference in your or someone else's life this week. The possibilities for how we use stories are endless - so let's take some time to explore their power!

 Join us on Friday, February 17th, for the Southfield Celebrates Black History Month finale event! Click below to purchase tickets from the Southfield Parks & Rec site. (You must click the "Enroll Now" button to create an account and make a purchase)

Dr. M. Roy Wilson Memoir Release Event with The Detroit Writing Room #motownwriters

We are excited to announce that we are starting a six-month Author Series that features intimate events with high-profile authors celebrating their recent releases. We thought some members of your writing group, Motown Writers Network, would be interested in attending as you share our love for literature and writing, and we'd love to have you attend!



While I also have you here, I am planning on sending out a very similar email for the Out-of-the-Box Branding Ideas Workshop you are working with us on. Are there any specific groups or businesses that you would like me to reach out to to let them know about that event?


Our first event takes place on Wednesday, January 25 at The Whitney from 7-8:30 p.m. The first author we are hosting is Wayne State University President Dr. M. Roy Wilson who will discuss his memoir, "The Plum Tree Blossoms Even in Winter." 


Guests will also enjoy drinks and hors d'oeuvres in The Whitney's Music Room along with a meet-and-greet with the author. Following the meet-and-greet will be a book talk, signing, and Q&A with Dr. Wilson.


Tickets

  • Tickets are $60 and can be purchased online

  • Author Series Passes to attend all 6 events are also available. Pass holders can attend 1 event for free and receive a 15% discount on books.


Date and Time

Wednesday, January 25 from 7-8:30 p.m.


The Location

The Whitney 

4421 Woodward Avenue 

Detroit, Michigan 48201


Parking

The Whitney offers valet parking in their main lot for $10 per car. Guests may self-park in the lot located across the street at Woodward and Canfield. There is also street parking along Canfield Street.



All About Dr. M. Roy Wilson

Dr. M. Roy Wilson is Wayne State University's 13th President. He was born in Yokohama, Japan to a Japanese mother and a Black father. His childhood was marked by sexual abuse, parental absence, as well as periods as a runaway. His life turned around under the guidance of his High School English teacher and he later received his MD from Harvard Medical School. After becoming a physician, Dr. Wilson developed a blinding eye disease and cancer that was thought to be terminal. He shares more about his experiences in his memoir "The Plum Tree Blossoms Even in Winter."


Attached is a graphic with more information that you are welcome to share. Feel free to reach out if you have any questions!


Sincerely, 

Rebecca
