Two-time Minnesota Book Award winner Wendy Webb, author of this year’s ECRL Reads title, The Fate of Mercy Alban, will be visiting four East Central Regional Library branches as the culminating event to the 2nd Annual ECRL Reads. Mark your calendars:
Veterans Day is a national holiday, first proclaimed as Armistice Day by President Woodrow Wilson in 1919 with the following words: “To us in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country’s service and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of the nations…”
Learn about the Great Mataafa Storm of 1905 on Lake Superior, marine weather forecasting and lifesaving equipment during Tall Water and Steel Ships, a special ECRL Reads presentation at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 13 at the Rush City Public Library. Presenting will be Thom Holden, former director of the Lake Superior Maritime Visitor Center.
