Oakland Literacy Council announced that David Marannis, a New York Times best-selling author and Detroit native, will deliver the keynote address at the Council’s 30th Annual Ex Libris fundraising dinner on Thursday, November 14, 2019, at the Village Club in Bloomfield Hills.
Marannis’ newest book, A Good American Family: The Red Scare and My Father, is set in Detroit in the early 1950’s. It weaves together his family’s ordeal of fear and triumph during the dark era of McCarthyism in the United States. Marannis’ father was brought before the House on Un-American Activities Committee, causing him to lose his job and forcing him to move his family from Detroit.
The acclaimed author has written 12 books in total, including Once in a Great City: A Detroit Story. Marannis is an associate editor at The Washington Post, where he has been affiliated for over 40 years. He has won two Pulitzer Prizes, as well many other major writing awards, including the George Polk Award, the Robert F. Kennedy Book Prize, the Anthony Lukas Book Prize, and the Frankfurt eBook Award. Books will be available for sale at the event.
The year’s Ex Libris event will celebrate the 35th Anniversary of the Oakland Literacy Council. A student and tutor will be speaking about their adult literacy experiences. The organization will also honor the contributions of its founder, Robert Gaylor. “Robert has been an example of true leadership. His dedication, enthusiasm, and ‘can do’ spirit has continued for 35 years, and we look forward to many more,” said Judy Lindstrom, Board President.
The event will begin with cocktails 6:30 p.m. followed by dinner at 7:30 p.m. at the Village Club, located at 190 East Long Lake, Bloomfield Hills. For tickets, visit http://www.oaklandliteracy.com/exlibris2019/ or call 248.253.1617.
