Steve Hughes wrote STIFF (https://wsupress.wayne.edu/books/detail/stiff) with an audience in mind. As creator of The Good Tyme Writers Buffet —a literary series/potluck which runs out of a neighborhood art space—Hughes offers up each story in the collection like a dish to be passed. Just as each Buffet was thematically tied to a gallery show, so is each story in Stiff. The book serves as a kind of photo album of moments when artists were working separately and collaboratively in the same space. The process of eating, drinking, making, and working together (and apart) is what Hughes says is the central theme of the collection: finding home.

Join us in celebrating Steve and his new short story collection at the Outer Limits Lounge on Thursday, November 8th. There will be food! There will be booze (in the form of a cash bar)! There will be a reading (@ 7:30)! But will there be cool t-shirts and other merch? You betcha!

Plenty of free, on-site parking | The book will be available for purchase and signing

ABOUT THE VENUE
Outer Limits Lounge is a Detroit rock n’ roll bar and record label owned and operated by John Szymanski and Kelly Jean Caldwell. The building (5507 Caniff) was purchased in 2012 and served as a clubhouse/recording-rehearsing studio/private event venue/etc. until officially opening its doors to the public in the fall of 2017. In coordination with the grand opening, Outer Limits Lounge released a small group of LPs under the same name as the bar!
