Café Shapiro 2022: Night 2
For the last 25 years, faculty at the University of Michigan have nominated undergraduate writers to showcase their work at a live event in the Shapiro Library: Café Shapiro.
This year had a virtual format, pushing the boundaries of how this student showcase has historically appeared to the campus community. Night Two of Café Shapiro 2022 was co-hosted by students Elizabeth Whitmore and Abigail Nighswonger. Digital Education Librarian Naomi Binnie also hosted both nights of the event. The eighteen talented students who spoke across two nights of poetry, prose, and more not only presented their work in an artful manner, but also spoke in depth about their journey to becoming writers and their sources of inspiration.

One of the purposes of Café Shapiro is to help inspire other students to write. As part of the second night of presentations, co-hosts asked how the featured writers first began writing, the work and authors they pull inspiration from, how daily life shapes their pieces, and how they make time to write in their busy lives.See our event listing for full details.
