Children and adult listeners and readers are again encouraged to attend a circle of poets and appreciators of poetry Monday. The event begins at 6:30 p.m. at the Two Harbors Public Library. Aspiring and accomplished poets are asked to share their original work or favorite poems written by others. The August gathering brought out a dozen people to share and enjoy poetry.
The event is sponsored by Friends of the Library. Interested people are invited to join the planners at their next meeting after the readings, about 8 p.m. at Blackwoods.
For more information contact the library at 834-3148.
Film rolls at 6 p.m. Tuesday for the continuing series “Changing Lives, Changing World” film series at the Two Harbors library. The light comedy features groups from remote settings on the Mongolian steppe, Saharan desert, and Amazon rain forest that go to lengths to watch the World Cup soccer final match on TV. It’s been called “stunningly photographed, highly amusing” and is 88 minutes long with subtitles.
A Silver Bay pickup has been added to the Sept. 23 trip to St. Scholastica’s “Golden Age of Radio” presentation at Mitchell Auditorium.
Prudence Johnson and Dan Chouinard will share their interpretations of classic standards of the 1930s and 1940s in voice and piano, interspersed with period photos and memories of the era from Minnesotans of all walks of life.
The event is free, with a coach bus picking up Silver Bay area residents at city hall at 4:45 and the depot lot in Two Harbors at 5:45.
Sign up at the library in either city while spots remain. For more information, call the Two Harbors library at 834-3148 or Silver Bay at 226-4331.
