The Storymakers Dinner
What could be better than a perfectly written story? 826michigan helps young people tell and write their stories everyday, and the volunteers and donors who contribute to our work make thousands of stories possible every year. Join us for a big dinner party -- with fabulous food and wine -- to celebrate great stories and the people who make them happen.
Dave Eggers will tell stories from his book, Zeitoun, a nonfiction account of a Syrian-American family caught up in post-Katrina New Orleans.
Quinn Strassel, a first-year teacher at Huron High School, will tell about his students and their recent work with our classroom volunteers.
Quinn's students will share their writing, which is featured in 826michigan's recent publication Talking Back, Giving Thanks, and Why It Never Pays to Drink the Haterade.
Chef Alex will provide an extraordinary and creative menu inspired by Dave Eggers' Zeitoun: mostly Syrian, with a touch of New Orleans Creole.
Don't delay. There is limited space, and this will absolutely sell out. Thursday, May 6, 6:30 p.m. At Zingerman's Roadhouse. Individual tickets are $75.
Made possible by the following generous sponsors: Clear Seas Research, Zingermans Community of Businesses, Q LTD, Borders, Dykema, Fifth Third Bank, AnnArbor.com, Thomson Shore and Third Mind Books.
