ForensicAre you a fan of TV channel Investigation Discovery and shows such as Forensic Files? Are you interested in how police solve missing person cases? If so, plan on attending this program when Michigan State Police detective sergeant Sarah Krebs joins us to discuss her work as a forensic artist.

Forensic art is any art that aids in the apprehension or conviction of a criminal offender or helps identify unknown deceased persons.  Detective Krebs will  explain how her evidence-based drawings and three-dimensional reconstructions aid in the investigation of unidentified remains, the apprehension of suspects, and the resolution of missing person cases.

Please join us for this fascinating look at police work! This event will take place in the conference room outside of the Civic Center Library. To register, call 586.574.4564.

Polish.Doctor.Nazi.CampsAuthor Barbara Rylko-Bauer will be joining us to discuss her 2015 Michigan Notable book A Polish Doctor in the Nazi Camps:  My Mother’s Memories of Imprisonment, Immigration and a Life Remade. 

Rylko-Bauer’s mother endured 3 Nazi concentration camps as a prisoner-doctor during World War II.  She then struggled to rebuild her life, first as a refugee doctor in Germany and later as an immigrant to the U.S.  Rylko-Bauer has produced a fascinating narrative that, not only tells her mother’s story, but also demonstrates how powerful historical forces impact individual lives.  Her writing is enriched with personal photographs, letters, archival documents and maps that combine to help us better understand World War II, the Holocaust and the struggle of immigrants in the aftermath of these tragic events.

This program will be held in the conference room next to the Civic Center Library. Registration is required for this event. Books will be available for sale and signing. Please call 586.574.4564 to register.
