  • Bennett Reading Tuesday, September 19

    The annual Elizabeth Bennett Reading will take place on Tuesday evening September 19 at the Cranbrook Library Reading Room, with refreshments and mingling starting at 6:30 and readings starting at 7.
    Second-year Bennett grant recipient Eglee Rodriguez-Bravo will return for her second reading. She will treat the audience to two short essays that were the product of a summer workshop. One story will take us on a walk through the streets of Seville Spain, in search of a hidden venue to see Flamenco, the Spanish art form that combines music and dance. The other narrates her memories of accompanying her mother to the city market.
    First-year grantee, Robert Greene, who has been a member of the science department at Cranbrook Kingswood for 35 years, will also read. He will also share two short stories. The first story delves into ways in which both a simple chess move and a subtle whitewater canoe maneuver guide a teacher to understand what is important. The second describes the way in which a glance at a street musician causes the author to look beyond appearances.
    These stories are a sampling of the work that these two faculty members took on this summer as recipients of the Elizabeth Bennett Writing Grant, now in its 33rd year. The purpose of the grant is to provide deserving faculty members with opportunities to pursue personal writing projects. The grant is named for Kingswood English teacher Elizabeth Bennett. From 1936 to 1968 she inspired her Kingswood students with a reverence for the written word. For a sampling of Eglee's 2016 reading click here.

  • Detroit Homecoming Alumni Panel

    On Friday September 13 starting at 3:30pm, students and faculty are invited to an alumni panel in Tremain Common featuring a dozen alumni who are considered "influencers" in their respective fields. This is the second annual Detroit Homecoming panel, which follows on the heels of the conference downtown sponsored by Crain's Business Detroit. Our alumni are part of an elite group of Detroit “ex-pats” - people with roots in Michigan who have gone on to great success around the country and the globe. They have been invited back by Crain’s Business Detroit and city officials to learn more about the renaissance of Detroit. This panel brings a wealth of alumni talent to campus. Alumni attending the Detroit Homecoming conference remain invested in the future of Detroit. They have spent the week learning about progress and ongoing challenges facing the city. Don’t miss this opportunity to connect with alumni talent and gain their perspective on Detroit initiatives.
