Adult Programs

The Meanderings Writer's Group

This group meets at the Library to write together. They share and critique their stories and sometimes submit for publication. They focus on the history of Saugatuck and Douglas, with emphasis on autobiographical essays, but other forms of writing are also encouraged. All are welcome.

Local Author Reception: Jacqueline Carey and Anna-Lisa Cox

Listen to readings, enjoy refreshments, ask questions, and learn about our hometown authors' work. Jacqueline Carey is the author of the New York Times bestselling Kushiel’s Legacy series of historical fantasy novels, The Sundering epic fantasy duology, postmodern fables "Santa Olivia" and "Saints Astray," and the Agent of Hel contemporary fantasy series. Anna-Lisa Cox is the author of A Stronger Kinship: One Town's Extraordinary Story of Hope and Faith, and an award-winning historian. Currently a fellow at Harvard University's Hutchins Center for African and African American Research, she also recently helped create two historical exhibits based on her original research at the Smithsonian's National Museum of African American History and Culture, including one on black pioneers.
