The 2017 documentary "Grooming a Generation" is a 30-minute film directed by Andy Sacks about local Ypsilanti barbers and their innovative program to get young customers reading:

"Read to your barber while you get a haircut. Get a two dollar refund. Low tech, high concept. No apps, no devices, no software. Just a 25 minute hair appointment, a shelf of books, and an adult who truly cares."

Join us for a screening of this captivating film, followed by a panel discussion with Emmy Award-winning director Sacks and some of the barbers who appear in the film.
