Great Lakes Commonwealth of Letters (GLCL) is a Writers' Center in Grand Rapids, Michigan. We have a simple, but vital mission: to encourage, promote, and celebrate the literary endeavors of writers in the Great Lakes region.
On Wednesday, July 13, Iliana Rocha and W. Todd Kaneko will join forces for Writers Squared.
Writers Squared is an original, free series here at GLCL wherein two authors (well-known to one another) read from their own work as well as each other’s, engaging with the audience in a dialogue revolving around their craft, the life behind the work, and whatever else may surface!

The Proust Questionnaire
When the author Marcel Proust was a teenager, he responded to a questionnaire in an English-language confessional album; the questions were intended to reveal the tastes and aspirations of the respondent. More recently, a version of the questionnaire has become a back-page favorite featuring celebrities in Vanity Fair magazine. We think it works well for the literati of Michigan, too.
