Michigan Grown Arts Program at Newaygo Library
On September 19, Newaygo Area District Library received
notification of award of a LowellArts mini-grant from the
Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs. The Michigan
Grown Arts program at Newaygo Library will feature artists and
speakers with Michigan connections for monthly variety
programming for adults or families when appropriate. A broad
range of artistic expressions will be represented, such as
authors, illustrators, musicians, crafters, painters, and
photographers. The monthly programs will continue through
September 2018. Stay tuned for more!
The first performance will be held on Thursday, October 26 from
7:00 – 8:30 pm at the Newaygo Area District Library.
“Annie Speaks” features the award winning actress and
director Collette Cullen portraying Annie Sullivan, Helen
Keller’s teacher. Helen Keller once said of her, “The day I met
my teacher was my soul’s birthday.” Cullen as Annie encourages
her audience to ponder Keller’s statement and discover their own
talents to live a purposeful life. A published author, Cullen’s
young adult novel, Annie
Finds Her Magic, inspires the reader to persevere while
discovering their own talents to live a purposeful life.
All families are invited to join the Newaygo Area District
Library to experience this delightful program on Thursday,
October 26th, from 7:00 – 8:30 pm. Refreshments of donuts and
cider will be served. The author will provide copies of her
book, Annie Finds Her Magic, for purchase and to be signed.
