Café Shapiro Anthology

Café Shapiro is an annual event at the University of Michigan Library where undergraduate student writers, nominated by their instructors to participate, read from their creative works. Café Shapiro began in February 1998 as part of the University’s “Year of the Humanities and Arts” (YoHA). and was originally conceived as a student coffee break. Café Shapiro takes place in the Shapiro Undergraduate Library during winter evenings in February. For many student writers, Café Shapiro is a first opportunity to read publicly from their work. This anthology includes their writings.
