Marygrove is proud to be entering the fourth decade of the Contemporary American Authors Lecture Series. From the great Gloria Naylor in 1989 to National Slam Champion Elizabeth Acevedo in 2019, Marygrove has brought significant African American authors to the attention of thousands in the Metro Detroit community.
