Castle Museum hosts Great Michigan Read author

SAGINAW – The Castle Museum, in joint collaboration with the Public Libraries of Saginaw, will host Michiganborn author Steve Luxenberg as part of the Great Michigan Read program on January 28 at noon.

The Great Michigan Read is a biennial program of the Michigan Humanities Council which partners with schools, libraries, museums and organizations in Michigan to bring people together to share a book written by a Michigan author.

“We enjoy participating in the Great Michigan Read,” said Ken Santa, president and CEO at the Castle Museum. “The chosen book is always one that connects us to our history here in Michigan which I think it’s important for us to remember. Our history tells our stories, be it personal, local or on a broader level.”

The event will also feature Linda Tilot of Saginaw County Community Mental Health Authority as she discusses the history of mental heath and the changes made through the years and for those wanting to start research on their own family genealogy, Leo LeFevre of the Public Libraries of Saginaw will present a program at the Hoyt Library following the event.

The Castle Museum is open Tuesday - Saturday 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Sunday from 1 to 4:30 p.m. For more information, call 989-752-2861 or go to www.castlemuseum.org.
