Pull up a stool, grab a drink and learn something new.

This month, Wayne State University kicks off a new series that will bring its renowned professors and scientists face-to-face with the public in Midtown’s renowned restaurants and cafés.

Aptly named Knowledge on Tap, the events will feature a live – and lively - discussion with some of Detroit’s greatest minds. The events will be held every other month at various Midtown restaurants and bars and will feature an informal presentation by one of Wayne State’s distinguished faculty members on a topic of their choice, followed by dynamic discussions.

Forthcoming Knowledge on Tap themes will include everything from local history, space exploration and medical breakthroughs to art, poetry and urban archaeology.

Kicking off the inaugural event will be author, musician and WSU English professor M.L. Liebler who will present “The Motown Sound: How Music Shaped the Motor City.” The event will take place at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 30 at Lefty’s Lounge, located at 5440 Cass Avenue, Detroit, MI 48202.

All Knowledge on Tap events are free, open to the public and to all ages, and require no education background.
