Kicking off the New Year at Shaman Drum

A few must-attend readings are coming up at Shaman Drum this month.

Khaled Mattawa will read at 7 p.m. at Shaman Drum on Jan. 21 (my sister Christine's birthday!). His new book of poems, Amorisco was published in October by Ausable Press.

Of course, you could always go to see Khaled read on Tuesday, Jan. 27 at UofM (Room 2022 at 202 S. Thayer Washington Street) as part of the Institute for the Humanities Brown Bag Lecture series.

Then you can go see poet Jennifer Metsker and fictionista Delia DeCourcy at Crazy Wisdom in Ann Arbor as part of the Work In Progress series on Wednesday, Jan. 21 at 7 p.m.

In the fiction world, Michael Shilling will read from his novel Rock Bottom on Thursday, Jan. 15 at 7 p.m. and Nami Mun will read from her new book Miles From Nowhere on Tuesday, Jan. 20 at 7 p.m.
