Ann Arbor: 33 1/3 Reading & Listening Parties

As part of the 2011 Summer Festival and the Fresh Ink Literary Arts Series in Ann Arbor, there will be a series of readings/listenings with local writers, journalists, and music aficionados reading excerpts from 33 1/3 books, followed by a guest DJ mixing from the oeuvre of the featured artist of the evening, beginning June 20th, and running for 3 weeks. A very cool idea...

It's also worth noting that the Ann Arbor District Library just added a large number of 33 1/3 titles to it's collection.
