One title, one state, and thousands engaged in literary discussion. This year's Great Michigan Read selection is "X: A Novel" by Ilyasah Shabazz with Kekla Magoon. This book explores the Michigan roots of Malcolm X, including the early life experiences, both good and bad, that molded him into one of the most prominent leaders of the twentieth century.
 
Join us for an afternoon of 1940s jazz with The Spangler/Smith Quartet. Enjoy an all-star performance while getting to know the music that played such an important role in Malcolm X's youth.
