Family

Our November meeting will be Friday, Nov. 22nd from 3:00 to 5:00pm in the 10th floor lounge of the English Department (5057 Woodward).

Our theme this month is family stories: whether they are short stories or novels, the family you’re born into or the family you choose, come ready to tell us about what you’ve been reading.

But even if you don’t get a chance to read, we hope you’ll stop by.

As always, we welcome everyone with an interest in knitting, crochet, needlepoint, or any other fiber art. Those with no experience can come and learn and we always have extra supplies on hand.

Hope to see you there!

The HORROR!

Our October meeting of Knit Lit will take place on Friday, Oct. 18th from 3:00-5:00pm in the 10th floor lounge of the English Department (5057 Woodward).

This month we’re reading horror stories, so whether you have a hankering for Stephen King, Shirley Jackson, or something else, it’s time to crack open a book (or short story) and start reading!

As always, we invite all members of the Wayne State community with an interest in the fiber arts (knitting, crochet, needlepoint, etc.) at any experience level to join us. We always have extra supplies and experienced knitters and crocheters on hand.

September Mysteries

Knit Lit will be meeting on Friday, September 27th from 3:30 to 5:30 in the tenth floor lounge of the English Department (5057 Woodward).

Along with our slightly later time, we’re trying out a new format for this month. Instead of picking a single reading for all of us to do, everyone is encouraged to read what they want in this month’s genre. For September, we picked: Mysteries.

So whether it’s a short story or graphic novel, we hope you’ll do some literary sleuthing and then join us for some fiber arts fun!

Welcome Back!

Our very first Knit Lit meeting of the year will be Friday, August 30th from 3:00-5:00pm in the 10th floor lounge of the English Department (located at 5057 Woodward). Simply ride the elevators up to the 10th floor and then head west down the long hall and the lounge will be on your left.

Our “reading” for this month is all the reading we did over the summer. Did you have any good beach reads? Did a good short story cross your path? Come and tell us what you read!

As always, Knit Lit is open to all members of the Wayne State community, so feel free to spread the word to interested students, staff, and faculty.

Hope to see you there!

May Meeting

Knit Lit will host its last meeting of the 2018-19 school year on Friday, May 24th from 3:00-5:00pm in State Hall 326.

There is no designated reading this month; instead, we invite you to catch up on one of the previous readings you might have missed, including:

  • Less by Andrew Sean Greer
  • The Yid by Paul Goldberg
  • The 7 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton
  • The Power by Naomi Alderman

But even if you don’t feel like reading, we hope you’ll join us for the end-of-the-year celebration.

There will be brownies…

April Meeting

Our April meeting will be Friday, April 26th from 3-5pm in State Hall 326.

This month’s book is Less by Andrew Sean Greer.

But even if you don’t read the book, we hope you’ll join us for some lively discussion and fiber arts fun!

March Madness!

For our March meeting, we’ll be reading The Yid by Paul Goldberg.

We’ll be meeting on Friday, March 29th from 3-5pm in State Hall 326.

Besides talking about the book and doing some wonderful fiber arts, we’ll also be discussing upcoming meetings. Have a book or short story you think we should read? Come and tell us about it!

Whodunit?

For our February meeting, we’ll be reading Stuart Turton’s The 7 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle. We’ll be meeting on Friday, Feb. 22nd from 3-5pm in State Hall 326.

As always, even if you don’t read the book, we hope you’ll join us for some fiber arts fun!

The Power

Power

Join Knit Lit on Friday, January 25th from 3-5pm in State Hall 326 as we kick off the Winter semester!

For our first meeting of the new year, we’ll be reading Naomi Alderman’s 2017 book, The Power. 

But even if you don’t get a chance to read it, we hope you’ll stop by for some fiber arts fun.

Angela Carter

For the November meeting, we’ve decided short stories would be the best, and we’re inviting all of our fiber artists to read some short tales penned by Angela Carter–whatever you’d like–and we’ll discuss them at our meeting.

The meeting will be on Friday, Nov. 30th from 3-5pm in State Hall 326.

As always, you don’t have to read to join in, and we welcome all experience levels from absolute beginners to expert fiber artists.

We’ll be knitting, crocheting, and doing needle work, so come join us!
