Detroit Slow Reading Club Launch on Rosa’s B-day

Make time to READ!


Detroit Little Libraries is helping to launch

Detroit’s first SLOW READING  club.

Slow down, you move fast.

Got to make the pages last.

If  you’ve never heard of SLOW READING clubs, you’re not alone. The alternative book club movement started in New Zealand and is spreading across the globe.  Read about the first slow reading club here.  And read the WSJ’s coverage here.


Join us in this amazing kick off event with a celebration of Rosa Park’s BIRTHDAY.

John Telford, an amazing civil rights activist and former Detroit schools superintendent, will give his all to a recreation of King’s I-have-a-Dream speech. We’ll be giving away cool books.

And, yes, there will be Birthday Cake!

The awesome folks at 20-Books Inc. are partnering with us to make this slowdown bookclub happen.  Learn more about their crucial mission here.


Wed. Feb 4th | 6 PM
Motor City Yacht Club
10835 East Jefferson Ave.

It’s all free. The book give-aways. The cake. The joys of reading slow.

Again. CAKE!


Thank you Rosa for all you did and all you continue to inspire!
