Special Summer Event

Tuesday, June 15, 7 PM Central
The Bluebird Effect by Julie Zickefoose


The Madeline Book Club is join ing together with the MI Wilderness Preservation to host this special June ZOOM. What better way to enjoy the arrival of summer than with a nature read and discussion of this delightful book. Thanks to former college classmate, Joe Scarry, the author will be zooming with us with funding provided by the La Pointe Center for the Arts and MIWP. 

The author, a naturalist, bird painter, and songbird rehabilitator, shares her passion and curiosity for “the zone where birds interact with people … the moment when her gaze meets the bright bead of its eye.” She takes care of four astonishingly tiny hummingbirds, “hatched from eggs no bigger than black-eyed peas,” who dominate her life with feedings every 20 minutes. Each chapter is illustrated with Zickfoose’s stunning watercolor paintings and is devoted to a different bird from bluebirds to sandhill cranes.

The book mixes humor, natural history, and memoir to give readers an intimate story of a life lived among wild birds while raising a family, as well.

To receive the ZOOM link a few days before the event, send your email address to bpweiss@mtco.com  (Paula Weiss 747-2059)  No need to send your email address if you are already receiving book club emails.  If you are new, please indicate if you want to receive future book club emails.

The book is A Good Provider is one who leaves:  One family and migration in the 21st century by Jason DeParle.  Kirkus Reviews says of this book, “a gorgeously written, uniquely insightful and evenly critical volume that hits every talking point on world migration today.”

The author lived with a family in the Philippines to gather material for his book. Pixie Martin will be leading the discussion.  Seri will be ordering copies for the Library and other public libraries will most likely have copies of the book.

Upcoming Book Club Meetings

After surveying the members and determining the availability of discussion leaders, it was decided to stay with the third Tuesday of the month and to continue with the zoom format.

Free Webinar: Federal Resources for Creative Community Development

Are you looking for funding to support a community development or creative placekeeping initiative in your neighborhood? If so, tune in on Tuesday, February 9, to Federal Resources for Creative Community Development—a free web seminar designed to help you access federal funds and harness the power of the arts and culture for community development.

This seminar features a new Creative Placemaking Public Resources Guide that offers:

  • a curated selection of federal funding sources that you can use to advance equitable community development,
  • examples of initiatives that have transformed community development through creative partnerships, and
  • practical tips on accessing federal grant programs.

A live demonstration of the guide’s powerful search functions will reveal often-overlooked federal resources for equitable community development, creative placemaking and the arts. You’ll also hear from practitioners who have successfully leveraged public funding opportunities for creative placemaking.

Complete session details and registration information are available at http://bit.ly/2LdRvDc. This one-hour session is designed for arts nonprofits, community development groups, state and local government agencies, arts advocates, cultural district managers, and creative placemaking practitioners. All organizations that are pursuing arts based community development initiatives are welcome to participate.

This one-time event is offered through a partnership between the National Assembly of State Arts Agencies, the National Alliance of Community Economic Development Associations and Metris Arts Consulting.
