#August22 1893: Birth of perennially popular US short-story writer, critic & poet #DorothyParker. Her COMPLETE POEMS: http://bit.ly/16mq3oH
First, it is the birthday of Dorothy Parker! When I was younger (ok I still do it) I tried to pattern myself for this woman writer of the 1920s, known for her sharp wit and place at the Algonquin Round Table. Oh, how I dream of staying at the Algonquin, and seeing that table for myself!

Wow, a free concert from the Detroit Symphony Orchestra? Yes, please! I already reserved my free tickets, and I am looking forward to the show!
How about a behind-the-scenes tour of the Opera house and 6 other Detroit theatres with @PresDetroit - Aug. 31? http://bit.ly/16QBbMG
This is an amazing opportunity presented by Preservation Detroit! I wish I could make it to this event, because it looks like it would be very informative and interesting, as well as one with beautiful architeture.
Second chance for Summer Zoomance ... tonight! http://www.detroitzoo.org/events/zoomance #DZzoomance http://fb.me/2j1AMJ5qc
This is another event I wish I could attend, but can't tonight. This is also an event if you want to go, you should jump on right now, since this is the last night. I have attended a few times before, and it is always a great time.
And there you have it! Three awesome events in Detroit, and the birthday of one of the most powerful voices in women's literary history - And I learned about it all in the time it takes to drink a cup of coffee!
