Open Mouth, Open Mic Event Wednesday

The Two Books, Two Communities program, a partnership between Northern Michigan University and the Marquette and Alger County communities, will host an Open Mouth Open Mic event at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 29, at the Ore Dock Brewing Company in Marquette.

At the event, attendees are encouraged to share their writings, songs and thoughts about food. 

The Two Books, Two Communities program has two 2021 community reads. The titles are Fried Walleye and Cherry Pie, edited by Peggy Wolff, and 2021 Michigan Notable Book Award Winner Teacher/Pizza Guy, a collection of poems by Jeff Kass.
