Tonight at the Fosston Library Theater!

Bill Patterson - “Up in the U.P.!" is an hour-long program of songs and stories about growing up in the iron mining towns of Michigan's Upper Peninsula during The Great Depression. These stories are similar to the experiences of the immigrant miners of the Mesabi Range in Minnesota. Dressed in costume and with guitar in hand, Jamerson performs original songs and tells stories about how the immigrants came to America, what they found when they got here, how they adapted to the new world and what life was like working in the mines. He sings songs about pasties (the miners favorite lunch), drilling for iron ore, thimble berries (which grew along the Lake Superior shore), sailing schooners that transported the ore, ski jumping which was brought by the Norwegians and songs about the Finnish culture with their love of saunas. The program is as informative as it is entertaining, and is family friendly.

Movie Night at the Fosston Library Theater! This is something new and very exciting! We are featuring PBS documentaries in our theater for you!

Our first feature is "Iris" on Tuesday, September 26th at 6:30 PM

Iris pairs the late documentarian Albert Maysles (Grey Gardens, Gimme Shelter), then 87, with Iris Apfel, the quick-witted, flamboyantly dressed 93-year-old style maven who has had an outsized presence on the New York fashion scene for decades. More than a fashion film, the documentary is a story about creativity and how a soaring free spirit continues to inspire. Iris portrays a singular woman whose enthusiasm for fashion, art and people are her sustenance. She reminds us that dressing — and indeed, life — is nothing but a grand experiment. "If you're lucky enough to do something you love, everything else follows."

Book Club is starting soon!

Join us on Teusday, September 12th for Book Club as we discuss "The Underground Railroad" by Colson Whitehead.

Tuesday, September 12th at 7 PM.

Cora is a slave on a cotton plantation in Georgia. Life is hellish for all the slaves but especially bad for Cora; an outcast even among her fellow Africans, she is coming into womanhood - where even greater pain awaits. When Caesar, a recent arrival from Virginia, tells her about the Underground Railroad, they decide to take a terrifying risk and escape. Matters do not go as planned and, though they manage to find a station and head north, they are being hunted.
