Good Books, Great Food & Fun!

“Detroit Loves to Read!! What is Your Favorite Must-Read Book?”

Let’s talk books!

Good books and great food – what a combination! You are invited to join us for a celebration of reading featuring a “buffet” of good books and great food.

Special guests will “sell” their favorite must-read book to you. At the conclusion of the book talks, each audience member will cast their vote for the book they are most likely to read first.

We all know there’s nothing better than talking about a good book. Please join us for an entertaining and engaging evening of book fun!  Book Lovers Buffet is supported by Ingram Library Services.

**BE ADVISED** This event is free and open to the public, however, it is limited admission and you MUST have a printed ticket or e-ticket to attend.  Only one person per admission (ticket).  Once we reach full capacity, no more tickets will be available.




Entrance & Drop-off location for the physically-disabled via our horseshoe driveway on Cass.  Free parking available in Employee Lot off Putnam between Cass and Woodward.  Metered parking on street.
