You’re invited to join 826michigan on June 6 as we celebrate our 10th annual Storymakers Dinner with featured author Cristina Henríquez. Recently declared a luminary of fiction, she is the author of The Book of Unknown Americans, which was a New York Times Notable Book of 2014 and one of Amazon’s 10 Best Books of the Year. She joins us to share perspectives on her heartfelt stories of family life, identity, and belonging.

 

Storymakers Dinner is a celebration that honors impactful writers and their stories, from nationally known novelists to emerging young authors in our community. Through this annual benefit celebration, 826michigan partners with Zingerman’s Community of Businesses to bring together a noted person of letters and more than one hundred friends committed to supporting the next generation of storymakers.
