Michigan’s Historic Lighthouses

On Monday evening, May 19th, the Southwest Michigan Postcard Club will present “Michigan Lighthouses: Past and Present,” a trip along Michigan’s shoreline with author Grace Truman at the Oshtemo Branch Library. Truman will illustrate her talk with a slideshow of photo postcards that she and her husband have collected over the course of their journeys.

Grace and Steve Truman are co-authors of Storms & Sand: A Story of Shipwrecks and the Big Sable Point Coast Guard Station (Pine Woods Press, 2014). Storms & Sand tells the history of a life-saving station that once stood in what is now part of Ludington State Park, and chronicles the lives of the lighthouse keepers at Big Sable Point.

Monday’s program is co-sponsored by the Southwest Michigan Postcard Club and the Kalamazoo Public Library. Truman’s presentation begins at 6:30 pm; books will be available for sale and signing.
