As a child growing up in Milford, Michigan, Lisa Ludwinski had three ambitions in life: to be a baker, a hair cutter, and a movie star… Boy oh boy, are we pie lovers lucky!
 
In the autumn of 2012, Ms. Ludwinski started Sister Pie out of the kitchen of her parents’ house. In 2015, after nearly 2.5 years of hard work, crowdfunding, grant applications, and a very dedicated intern, Sister Pie opened its brick and mortar location at Parker and Kercheval to a line out the door. Since then, Sister Pie has been featured in Bon Appetit, the New York Times, Eater, and Bloomberg News. Ms. Ludwinski was recently named a finalist for a 2019 James Beard Award!
 
The Miller Library is excited to welcome Ms. Ludwinski to discuss her 2019 Michigan Notable Award winning book Sister Pie: The Recipes & Stories of a Big-Hearted Bakery in Detroit.

Books will be available for purchase and signing.

Registration is required. Register here or call 586.751.5377.

Next time you stop by the library to get something to read, consider bringing something along to help those in need as well.

Now through April 30, all Warren Public Library locations will be collecting donations of nonperishable food items as part of the Food for Thought campaign, a regional effort between local libraries and Gleaners Community Food Bank of Southeast Michigan. Food banks see a decrease in inventory during the winter and early spring, so donations are needed to help feed hungry children, seniors, and families in your community!

To take part, bring in nonperishable food items and place them in donation boxes inside the library. For more information, call 586.574.4564.
