PQL at the Kerrytown Bookfest

Sunday, September 9, 2018, 10:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Ann Arbor Farmers Market, Ann Arbor, MI

Detroit Brush Street

The day started bright and early with a quick trip to Detroit. Well, actually, it was gloomy and early.

Guys, it was cold. So, so cold. Not the ideal weather for book browsing in an open-air farmer’s market, but a few brave souls made the effort.

On the bright side, the venue was pretty nice, and the vendors were varied and interesting. The people at the table across the way, for example, showed kids how to make paper!


PortraitSo as you can see, we’ve been busy these first few weeks of September. But don’t worry if you missed these events—we’ve got plenty more where those came from! Be sure to check out our events page for the skinny on everything that’s happening this month.
