The 9th Annual Kerrytown® BookFest will again be held in the Farmers’ Market in the historic Kerrytown district of Ann Arbor, Michigan this fall on Sept. 11th.
Each year our festival has grown, adding more exhibitors, more events, and of course, more visitors. In addition to our wonderful speakers, demonstrators, exhibitors and visitors, this year we are celebrating writers and readers of Michigan, with the support of the Michigan Humanities Council.
The Kerrytown BookFest is an event celebrating those who create books and those who read them. The primary goal is to highlight our area’s rich heritage in the book and printing arts while showcasing our local and regional individuals, businesses, and organizations. Since 2003 we have been growing, sharing, and discovering more and more about the rich book culture in our region.
Please join us for a wonderful day of speakers, education, and activities and join our rich and varied community of people who love the book and book arts.
When: Sunday September 11, 2011 11 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Cost: This is a free event.
September 23, 2011
Described as “overall, the most maturely expressive male jazz singer of his generation, if not the best alive” by the New York Times, 2011 Grammy nominee Freddy Cole brings his Quartet to Ann Arbor for two sets September 23.
Cole doesn’t apologize for sounding like his brother, Nat “King” Cole. There are certain unmistakable similarites. He plays and sings and performs live with guitar and upright bass, just like Nat. Yet his voice is raspier, smokier, jazzier even. He has emerged from the awesome shadow cast by his brother.
This concert is part of KCH’s Kerrytown Club series, a chance to enjoy great musical moments in a nightclub setting. Call early to reserve café tables in the front of the hall. A cash bar will be available.
When: Friday September 23, 2011 7:30 p.m. & 9:30 p.m.
Cost: Ticket prices range from $15 – $35
