Documentary - Sex Trafficking in America

Tuesday, September 17 from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm

Mason County District Library

Tuesday, September 17th at 7 pm, the Ludington Library presents the documentary film by FRONTLINE, "Sex Trafficking in America." This is a documentary that tells the stories of young women coerced into prostitution - and follows one police unit that's committed to rooting it out. In the film, award-winning director Jezza Neumann and producer Lauren Mucciolo (Poor Kids) embed with the Phoenix police unit that's tackling child sexual exploitation, offering an inside look at the lucrative industry through unique access to a series of undercover, high-stakes police operations. They also film with young women who have escaped the trade. What's revealed is a crime that's both hidden in plain sight and growing - due in part to social media, where traffickers often start to groom and recruit young women and girls. With extensive and intimate access to local law enforcement, prosecutors, service providers and the women themselves, the film shines a light on the hidden reality of sex trafficking in America. All MCDL events are free.

Gerald has performed with numerous artists including Philly Soul group Harold Melvin & The Blue Notes and a recording artist of The Sound of Philadelphia record. He is currently resident pianist at the Detroit Metro Airport’s McNamara Terminal and also performs as part of Detroit-based Motown band KGB. An accomplished arranger Gerald’s vast repertoire will include jazz standards and easy listening in the Saints & Sinners Lounge. “What really caught my ear when I first heard Gerald play is his lush use of complex chords and harmonies in his playing. His background in jazz and history performing R& B/Soul provide a musically provocative listening experience. Gerald also adapts many more familiar tunes from The Beatles to more contemporary artists into his arrangements which are always interesting and refreshing to hear.” – Bryan Jao VP Programming

Red Sand Project invites you to question, to connect, and to take action against vulnerabilities that can lead to exploitation. The most vulnerable people in our communities carry the greatest risk of losing their freedom, and the process of filling sidewalk cracks with sand requires you to be mindful of something that is usually overlooked. The simple act of placing sand in a crack or posting a photo on social media may seem inconsequential, but small actions can build on each other to make transformational change. With a up a packet of Red Sand, fill a sidewalk crack with red sand, take a photo and share using #RedSandProject. All MCDL events are free.

On September 24, 2019, Americans will celebrate National Voter Registration Day with a massive 50-state effort to register voters before Election Day this November. The Portage Lake District Library is excited to be part of the national effort to strengthen our community by registering voters on National Voter Registration Day. Library staff will be available to help you register to vote, check your voter registration status, and answer questions you may have about the process from noon to 4pm on Tuesday, September 24. Voter registration is a crucial aspect of a healthy democracy, and the library is thrilled to help the public engage and participate. First started for the 2012 presidential election, National Voter Registration Day has become a 50-state holiday where thousands of organizations and volunteers organize to ensure our family, friends, and neighbors are registered to vote. Voting is one way we express ourselves as a community, as voters and Americans, but to exercise this basic right, we must be registered to vote. As a nonpartisan coalition of organizations, National Voter Registration Day is the perfect opportunity to get involved no matter what party you support or which issues matter most to you. All library events are free and everyone is welcome. For more information on the program, please call the library at 906-482-4570.

Live Folk Music in Ludington
Sep 27
Mason County District Library
Ludington, MI 49431

Friday, September 27 from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm

Mason County District Library

The public is invited to the Ludington Library Friday September 27 at 7:00 pm to celebrate folk music with Whispering Tree. Called “one of the most talented duos to take stage in NYC” by Deli Magazine The Whispering Tree are singer/songwriter Eleanor Kleiner and multi-instrumentalist Elie Brangbour. Together they craft richly immersive folk-rock brimming with evocative lyrics and a panoramic musicality. Invisible Forces the fourth recording by the fiercely independent twosome debuted at #1 on the International Folk DJ charts with four songs in the top 20. The album was self-produced fan-funded and recorded at Elie and Eleanor’s home studio in Beacon NY and at Old Soul Studio in Catskill NY and explores a deeply personal and political landscape with themes of hope despair and social consciousness. The lead single “Fat Cat” has antecedents in Elie’s French background and the old-time gypsy jazz tradition back in his hometown while the satirical anti-capitalist sentiment of the lyrics is firmly rooted in the protest songs of the folk revival. Other album highlights include the impressionistic “These Houses ” a song describing the haunting beauty of abandoned places the revelatory “Heavy ” which with elegant grace connects New Orleans-style jazz with the 1960s rock and pop harmony vocal tradition the darkly foreboding environmental ballad “Garden ” and the sweetly rousing protest song “Bells.” Since its 2007 inception The Whispering Tree has issued two albums and two EPs and toured nationally and internationally. The duo has also earned prime critical acclaim from The Big Takeover Magazine and Keyboard Magazine among others. Other marquee career moments include being Kerrville New Folk finalists Philadelphia Songwriter’s Project winners and Eleanor and Elie having the honor to lend their voices to Pete Seeger and Lorre Wyatt's album A More Perfect Union. Learn more at thewhisperingtree.com. This program is free and open to the public. Whispering Tree Friday September 27 7:00 pm Ludington Library.

St Ignace Public Library

Join us on Wednesday, October 2, at 7:00 PM for stories and presentation on Michigan’s Haunted Lighthouses. What is it about lighthouses that attract ghostly spirits? Maybe it’s simply a passion that will not go away. Lighthouse keepers were known to be extremely dedicated to their profession and it seems that many were never able to give it up — even after death. More than 30 lights in Michigan are rumored to be haunted. From the smell of cigar smoke at Seul Choix Point Light to the mysterious housekeeping at White River Light Station and the antics at Waugoshance Shoal, these stories will entertain all ages. This popular program is coming to the pages of “Michigan’s Haunted Lighthouses” — a book by Dianna Stampfler, available now from The History Press.

Community Discussion: Musical Arts in the Straits Area
Oct 2
Mackinaw Area Public Library
Mackinaw City, MI 49701

Wednesday, October 2 from 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm

Mackinaw Area Public Library

Is it really true nobody likes to get into a “jam”? Well, what about musicians? (…at least, into a musical jam, that is.) Wednesday, Oct. 2nd, there will be a meeting at 7pm in the Mackinaw Area Public Library Community Room to discuss what sorts of area musical activities the Mackinaw City Area Arts Council could help organize and offer. There are probably lots of musical instruments (voices included) sitting in the back of closets or in basements gathering dust that would like to have the chance to make a little “joyous noise” once again. Or maybe someone just wants to listen... or learn a new instrument. This meeting will be an opportunity to discuss these options and hopefully show enough area interest to begin forming a local musical arts presence. Open Mic: A gathering of musical artists where attendees present a limited number of solo (or rehearsed group) musical numbers for each other.. Jam Sessions: participants take turns calling songs to be played but all participants are invited to join in vocally and or instrumentally. Usually, a regular playlist evolves that all participants learn. Mountain Dulcimer Club: A lap dulcimer is one of the easiest and least expensive instruments to learn. It only has three strings and sits on the player’s lap or on a table. Popular for both youth group and adult group playing, this instrument will be demonstrated. Options for acquiring a lap dulcimer will discussed as well. Please join us to discuss ways to include the musical arts in the Straits area. This event will be facilitated by Dan House, a new Mackinaw City resident and new MCAAC member (along with his wife, Jackie). Dan is a life-long guitar player, but will tackle anything with strings on it that doesn’t involve a bow ! He is a past board member and past president of the Paint Creek Folklore Society and a former board member of the Michigan Fingerstyle Guitar Society. While retired in the Grayling Area, Dan played in venues throughout northern MI, played for Munson Hospital Hospice patients, and formed a mountain dulcimer club at the Crawford County Council on Aging. Currently Dan is a co-host at the twice-monthly Boyne Celtic Sessions in Boyne City. If you are unable to attend the event, please email comments, questions or concerns to DHMCcommunitymusic@gmail.com There is no charge for this event.

Saturday, October 5 from 7:00 am to 9:30 pm

Visit Cadillac

Gopherwood is please to welcome this fine duo to our stage for the first time. We think you'll enjoy them as much as we have in our visits to some of their performances this past summer. There’s something about the bend of the mandolin the rustle of the guitar the gale-like wave of the vocal melody… that calls you to adventure. Songwriting duo Emily Burns and Aaron Markovitz have always been adapting. The two Michiganders met as individual music makers in the blues open-mic circles then they studied their craft together in California and wound up taking to the seas to cover Top 40 hits for a cruise ship’s dance hall. After that they started a southern rock-inclined neo-country quartet called Escaping Pavement. But most of their fans started finding them after 2014 when they kept their intrepid-sounding name but pared down to just a duo. With just their voices an acoustic guitar and a mandolin they wrote and recorded an album (The Night Owl) that was heavy on melody-slung Americana and rollicking twangy ballads that attained a radiance through their magnificent harmonies. Now they’re adapting again this time as Road Warriors. Tickets are $15 adv. / $18 door for adults $7/$9 students 13-18 and free for kids 12 and under when accompanied by and an adult. Advance tickets can be purchased online at My North Tickets downtown Cadillac at Toy Town and The After 26 Depot Cafe starting Sept. 1st and via phone at 1-800-836-0717 PLEASE NOTE THAT OUR SHOWS START AT 7:00 PM THIS YEAR.
