About Clybourne Park:
A razor-sharp satire about the politics of race.
Winner of both the Pulitzer Prize and the Tony Award for Best Play, Clybourne Park is a razor-sharp satire about the politics of race. Act One takes place in 1959, as white community leaders anxiously try to stop the sale of a home to a black family. Act Two is set in the same house in the present day, as the now predominantly African-American neighborhood battles to hold its ground in the face of gentrification.

Meet the Authors Behind the Books at Event Celebrating Michigan Writers October 22
CLAWSON, MI (September 27, 2017) – Book it to Leon & Lulu from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday, October 22 for a fresh edition of the retailer’s award-winning Books & Authors event. October is National Book Month, an entire month dedicated to the pleasure of reading and enjoyment of books. Leon & Lulu celebrates this occasion with its tenth Books & Authors event at Leon & Lulu. The event – now held in April and October – is a juried book fair featuring mostly Michigan writers. Guests will have the opportunity to mix and mingle with up to 60 authors who will sell and sign books.
“We love this event, which gives authors the chance to leave their ivory towers and meet their adoring fans,” says Mary Liz Curtin, co-owner of Leon & Lulu. “We’re again working with the Oakland Literacy Council, a very important organization that will benefit from the event,” she explains.
Shake the ink-stained hands of local authors and celebrate reading, writing, and really good hot dogs at Leon & Lulu’s Books & Authors event October 22. For a full list of expected authors, please visit www.leonandlulu.com/meet-the-authors.
