What Is The Shady Ladies Literary Society?
Shady Ladies is for anyone who loves stories (memoirs! beach reads! literary fiction! sci-fi! nonfiction!) as well as good food and thoughtful conversation. (And perhaps a little bourbon.) 
A Shady Lady is anyone (men too!) who has ever gotten lost in a book. Anyone with a self-professed literary addiction and perhaps more books than friends. (Don't worry, we won't tell.)
If that's you, then welcome!
Our regular Shady Ladies experiences bring emerging women* authors to Detroit to talk with other Shady Ladies about their books. We have good food and conversation in unique locations. If that isn't a winning combo, we don't know what is.
Have we piqued your interest? As Stephen King once said, "Good books don't give up all their secrets at once," and neither do Shady Ladies. You have to come meet us to believe us.
We're like book club... but better. ;-)
*When we say women, we mean just that: anyone who identifies as a woman.
