Humanities Commons debuts Professors, Poets & Pies event

On Monday, Nov. 29, the Wayne State Humanities Commons debuted its first "Professors, Poets & Pies" event. The creative faculty lineup included Natalie Bakhopolos, Robert Laidler and Caroline Maun.

Humanities Commons Coordinator M. L. Liebler, accompanied by Detroit guitarist Ted Nagy, concluded the performance with a fusion of original poetry and music. The event drew more than 40 students and members of the WSU community.

Pies and coffee were widely distributed, enhancing the communal atmosphere of the gathering. 

Liebler created the original Poets & Pies series more than 15 years ago with support from Poets & Writers, Inc. of New York City and The Detroit Writers’ Guild. The event has become a cultural mainstay, celebrating the intersection of poetry and performance.

Look out for upcoming Poets & Pies events and other unique programs during the winter term at the Humanities Commons. The space is located on the second floor of the Undergraduate Library (UGL) and is open to all, providing a safe environment dedicated to discussions on disabilities and resilience.

For future Poets & Pies and additional program details, refer to the Humanities Commons calendar.
