Good day on this snowy Monday.
Capital Area District Libraries reopens its downtown branch today. The location has been closed all winter for remodeling. Read about the updates in last week's City Pulse cover story.
Mary Harris “Mother” Jones was once called “the most dangerous woman in America” because of her tireless efforts on behalf of working people and their unions from the 1880s to the 1920s. She is famous for her wit and sharp tongue in the face of mine bosses, National Guardsmen and thugs. Next week, West Virginia storyteller and actress Karen Vuranch recreates the famous activist in two Greater Lansing performances. Monday, the actress performs on MSU’s campus; Tuesday she brings the show to UAW Local 602 in Lansing. Both performances are co-sponsored by Our Daily Work/Our Daily Lives, the MSU Poetry Center and the MSU Department of Theatre. Monday: 7 p.m. RCAH Theatre in Snyder-Phillips Hall, 362 Bogue St., East Lansing. Tuesday: UAW Local 602, 2510 W. Michigan Avenue, Lansing. events.msu.edu.
