Poetry is Life: Marsha Music
Presents Her Writings
at Swords into Plowshares Peace Center & Gallery
MARSHA MUSIC is the daughter of a legendary pre-Motown record producer, Joe Von Battle. She was born in Detroit and grew up in Highland Park during its lush, prosperous days, and has lived in these two cities all of her life. She is a self-described "Detroitist" and for many years has written about the City's music, its past and future. She is a noted presenter and has contributed to important anthologies, oral histories, and an HBO documentary.
Marsha has received acclaim for her memoir/essay, "The Kidnapped Children of Detroit", and her epic poem, "Just Say Hi (the Gentrification Blues)". She lives with her husband David Philpot in Lafayette Park, where she is a member of the writing group, the Honey Locusts.
Join us for an enjoyable evening with one of our finest "Detroitists"
