DETROIT, Mich., March 9, 2010—The peace advocacy group We-Us-I Will S.U.R.V.I.V.E. along with Marygrove College are hosting the First Annual Peace and Love Day on Saturday, March 13, 2010, from 1- 5 p.m. on the Marygrove College campus.

Walter_Mosley

The Boston Globe celebrates him as “one of this nation’s finest writers.” The Austin Chronicle calls him “one of the most humane, insightful, powerful prose stylists working today in any genre….also one of the most radical.” Each novel he publishes, says The Philadelphia Inquirer, “is an event, a literary feast for lovers of the written word. . . . There are few contemporary writers as consistently fine….” Writing in The New Yorker, Ben Greenman observes, “All his works share an abiding interest in the moral dimensions of everyday life….”

The Marygrove College Department of English and Modern Languages is pleased to announce that mystery writer, novelist, and social commentator Walter Mosley will be the twenty-second guest—and the first mystery writer— in its Contemporary American Authors Lecture Series. He will deliver the Lillian and Donald Bauder Lecture at 8 p.m. on Friday, April 16, 2010 in Alumnae Hall. Afterward, he will sign copies of his works, which will be available for purchase.

Marygrove program takes aim at societal inequality
BY SANDRA SVOBODA

Forget about irrelevant classes, students who never use their degrees and faculty who sit isolated in their ivory towers. A five-year-old master's program in social justice at Detroit's Marygrove College is more like guerrilla academics. "The program encourages each student to get out there and do
something. One of the primary objectives is to promote action, not just study and research but to promote action," says Elaine Semanik, 64, who will graduate in May.

Four years ago, the West Bloomfield woman retired as a project manager in the legal department at Chrysler Corp., where she'd worked for 23 years. She decided she wanted to do something about problems in the United States — and specifically Detroit — rather than "sit around and talking about things, whether it was the war or poverty or different social injustices."
