4th Friday Breakfast Is Just Around The Corner

Jennie Moench will be joining us to discuss her new book: The Flint Project.

The original Flint Project, printed in 2008, was an accident, more of a response to learning that Flint had again made it into the top three list of most violent cities in the U.S. In Flint Project vol. 2, Jennie creates a kind of Flint scrapbook. Jennie’s goal is for the reader to get an accurate idea of what it’s like to visit Flint, Michigan.

Breakfast this month is Friday, October 28th at 7:30am at Hoffman’s Deco Deli & Cafe. We will see you there!

I Am Flint Project Now On IndieGoGo

In our ongoing effort to raise funds for the I Am Flint Project, Flint Club has a project page on IndieGoGo. IndieGoGo works much like Kickstarter with one big difference. Any money that you contribute to the project will be given to Flint Club, even if we do not reach our funding goal.

So if you contributed to the Kickstarter project please consider contributing to us through IndieGoGo. We work on a shoestring budget, and anything you could contribute to help defray the cost of this project will be greatly appreciated. To see the project description and to contribute just head over here http://www.indiegogo.com/I-AM-FLINT?a=272270&i=addr

Thank you so much!
