Movie Screening: After the Factory
This eye-opening documentary looks at the diametrically different cultures of Detroit, Michigan and Lodz, Poland, two former industrial towns suffering from the same fate of unemployment and population decline. Interviewing citizens, policy-makers and entrepreneurs, "After the Factory" reveals how these fallen giants might be the innovators writing the new rulebook for cities of the future. Sunday, October 5th at 2pm.
A Special Collections Maritime Program
We’ve always heard that lighthouses were built to warn sailors of dangerous areas in order to prevent shipwrecks. But was that really the case? Did those lighthouse lanterns lead ships to safety or give them a false sense of security while beckoning them in? Maritime historian, Pat Labadie, will explore this tantalizing question.
Back to School
