Kalamazoo, MI –

Join us Thursday, November 12, 5:30 pm at Central Library, Van Deusen Room and meet three innovators making a difference in our community. 

We know that members of our community are working hard to make Kalamazoo a better place to live and work. That's why the Kalamazoo Public Library and ONEplace started KICtalks, an event series that spotlights dynamic, innovative endeavors happening right now.

Join us every quarter for three, 10-minute talks presented by residents on the ground doing the work. The program is followed by a reception where locally-sourced refreshments will be served.

Thursday's KICtalks features:

  • Jeff Abshear, Kalamazoo Book Arts Center: The KBAC was founded in 2005 by artists and writers with a passion for book arts. Their vision is now a creative public space where artists and book enthusiasts of all kinds gather to collaborate and celebrate books and the many arts that inform them: papermaking, printmaking, letterpress, creative writing and bookbinding.
  • Marcus Collins, Restore Ministries: Restore works to assist returning citizens from incarceration back into community life with the central tools needed to become normal, ordinary responsible persons. 
  • Michael Evans, Kalamazoo Literacy Council: Adult illiteracy is a growing problem in Kalamazoo County. Learn what you can do to help.
