We'd like to acknowledge all the new literary endeavors happening in Detroit, such as:
Book clubs that promote picking up books and reading them collectively with robust discussions.
We'd also like to acknowledge The Detroit Study Club, a literary and cultural organization for women of color. Established in 1898, it’s the oldest African American Women's membership organization in Detroit, with a membership that spans multiple generations of Detroit-area women. The organization meets once a month at various locations. A display of the Centennial Award received from the State of Michigan, is currently housed at the Detroit Public Library Main Branch.
