Madeline Island Book Club Upcoming Meeting

Madeline Island Book Club will host a zoom meeting with the New York Times bestselling author, William Kent Krueger, on Tuesday, July 21 at 7:00 p.m.

Krueger was originally scheduled to come to Madeline Island until the events of the past months occurred.  He will be zooming from a Northern Minnesota location and discussing his book, Iron Lake, the first novel in his series featuring Cork O’Connor.  This colorful detective, half Irish and Ojibwe, investigates murders in the small town where he was formerly sheriff.  The author’s deft eye for the details of everyday life bring the town and is peculiar problems to vivid life.

To receive the link to the meeting, send your email address to bpweiss@mtco.com.  Copies of the book should be available at the Library.

The book club is an affiliate of the La Pointe Center for the Arts which provided funding for this author event.

LPC Annual Winetasting Postponement

Dear La Pointe Center Members,

As you know by now, La Pointe Center has determined that in order to ensure community safety, the annual Wine Tasting and Silent Auction Fundraiser scheduled for May 24 is on hold because of COVID-19.
 
Our Annual Wine Tasting is not just the opening of the Island’s summer season. It is the cornerstone of our yearly fundraising. We are asking our members to consider what they would have spent at the event and redirecting some of that to LPC as a donation. It would go a long way right now under these very trying circumstances.

Feel free to use the Paypal button below, or download the membership form here to mail in.

On behalf of all the artists on the Island, as well as our Board of Directors and volunteers who work to keep the arts thriving, thank you for your generosity. We could not do this without you!

Peg Bertel
Chair, LPC Board of Directors
