Downtown Library: 4th Floor Meeting Room


Ann Arbor Author Steve Amick celebrates his latest book, You Shall See The Beautiful Things. Envisioned as a “nocturne,” Steve Amick’s playful, multilayered novel expansively retells Eugene Field’s famed verse “Wynken, Blynken, and Nod.”

Steve Amick is the author of the novels Nothing But a Smile and The Lake, the River & the Other Lake, which was a Washington Post Book of the Year, a BookSense Pick, and was cited in the Encyclopedia Britannica’s Britannica Book of the Year as one of three “standout” debuts of 2005. Shorter works have appeared in Playboy, McSweeney’s, Zoetrope: All-Story, Southern Review, Story, Michigan Quarterly Review, Cincinnati Review, The New York Times, The Washington Post, and on NPR. He received an MFA in creative writing from George Mason, and has taught as part of MFA programs at Northwestern and Pacific universities. He lives in Ann Arbor, where he was born.

This event is in partnership with Literati Bookstore and includes a signing with books for sale.

The Library intends to provide a live stream of this event pending the presenter's permission. Please check back closer to the event for additional updates.
