Calumet Library Red Jacket Readers Book Club to hold discussion of "Annie's Ghosts" TONIGHT, July 16

CALUMET -- The Calumet Library Red Jacket Readers Book Club will hold a discussion of Annie’s Ghosts: A Journey into a Family Secret, by Steve Luxenberg, from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. TONIGHT, Wednesday, July 16, at the Calumet Public Library. The event is free and open to the public.

Chosen as a Michigan Notable Book for 2010 and as the Great Michigan Read for 2013 – 2014, Annie’s Ghosts has sparked conversations all across the state about family secrets and the mental health movement. Washington Post senior editor Luxenberg grew up believing his mother had been an only child, only to discover she had had a younger sister who had spent much of her life in mental health institutions. The memoir, Annie’s Ghosts, traces Luxenberg’s journey of discovery about his aunt. Join the Red Jacket Readers for a discussion of this thought-provoking book. Multiple copies are available for checkout at the library, and the book is also for sale in several area stores. 

This event is sponsored by the Friends of the Calumet Public Library. For more information, visit the library or call 337-0311 ext. 1107.

(In case of bad weather, when school is cancelled, all library programs are cancelled.)
