Sunday, October 10th
11 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Benefit for Beyond Basics
Sponsored by ICU Eyewear and Leon & Lulu
Celebrate reading and writing, get new glasses and help promote literacy all at the same time!
Leon & Lulu will celebrate reading and writing with
its second annual Books & Authors event.
We love to read and we just adore writers so we are giving nearly 40 Michigan authors space to sell and sign their books, meet their fans and help promote literacy in Michigan. Shoppers will enjoy refreshments, live entertainment and support Beyond Basics, a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation offering reading, writing and expanding horizons enrichment programs to students attending public schools in Metro Detroit.
The Books & Authors event is co-sponsored by ICU Eyewear, purveyor of fun and fancy reading glasses. ICU has donated a limited quantity of fashionable and funky reading glasses, which will be sold the weekend of the event for $17 (regular retail $22).
All proceeds from the sale of the reading glasses, tips and raffle money
will also benefit Beyond Basics.
Entertainment will be provided by Trio Fiori
(Jeffrey Beyer, flute; Theresa Stacy, violin; Sharon Sweet, piano)
