2014 marks the sixth year of the Midwest Literary Walk, held annually in Chelsea. For one day, the town will host a group of celebrated writers for local readings. This year's tentpole reader is Ann Arbor’s own mystery novelist extraordinaire Harry Dolan, who will read at 11am in the Purple Rose Theatre. Dolan will accompany local writers such as award-winning poet Diane Seuss, National Book Award finalist Bonnie Jo Campbell, and Detroit poet ML Liebler with the Coyote Monk Poetry Band. Local poets and authors are invited to read their work at an open mic.
