Join us for a screening of a Great Lakes adventure documentary!
Great Lakes historians say up to 10,000 shipwrecks rest full of history at the bottoms of the Lakes. Join us for a screening of Detroit Free Press journalist Eric Seals’ film festival favorite, Graveyard of the Great Lakes: A Shipwreck Hunter’s Quest to Discover the Past. This documentary explores three of the nearly 100 wrecks found by shipwreck hunter David Trotter. All three of these shipwrecks were found at the bottom of Lake Huron. That’s how the journey ended, but how did it start? Learn about the sailors’ life-and death-struggles, their heroic connection to the past and the story of a lone survivor.
This documentary has been shown at the 2015 Freep Film Festival and the 2015 Utopia Film Festival. It has also been accepted into the 2016 Green Bay Film Festival and the 2016 Thunder Bay Festival. The library is providing an opportunity to our patrons to see the film for free on Thursday, February 11th at 7pm.
