The Midwest Literary Walk (MLW) was started in 2009 by former Chelsea District Library Director Bill Harmer and Wayne State University professor and poet ML Liebler, in an effort to bring poetry to the people and develop a love of the art form in their community. Backed and financed by the Chelsea Library from the very beginning, the MLW has always existed as an event that showcases poetry and literature in ways that are interactive and engaging to the community. The Chelsea Library also works with generous partners and sponsors that help to make the MLW one of the most exciting book events of the year. The Midwest Literary Walk takes place in Chelsea on the last Saturday in April.
