Bart Stupak presents For All Americans

Event Dates and Times

10/7/2017 - Starts: 11:00 AM - Ends: 12:00 PM
Peter White Public Library, Shiras Room, Marquette MI 49855
Join Covenant Books author Bart Stupak Esq. as he presents the release of his new novel For All Americans: The Dramatic Story of the Stupak Amendment and the Passage of Obamacare on Saturday, October 7, at 11:00 am in the Peter White Public Library’s Shiras Room.

For All Americans is a riveting insider’s view of the US House of Representatives from a nine-term congressman who dedicated his legislative career to achieving national health care and protecting the sanctity of life. It not only gives readers a front-row seat to the inner workings and behind-the-scenes deal-making, negotiating tactics, and day-to-day operations in the US House, but also gives a first-person account of the collaboration between former President Obama and Mr. Stupak’s small but dedicated team of legislators as they worked to achieve the historic passage of the Affordable Care Act.

Following the presentation there will be a question and answer session with time for book sales and signing. There is no admission charge to attend. For more information, visit www.pwpl.info or call 226-4318.

Music of the West African Kora

Event Dates and Times

10/7/2017 - Starts: 3:00 PM - Ends: 5:00 PM
Peter White Public Library, Community Room, Marquette, MI
Enjoy an afternoon concert for all ages with Sean Gaskell at the Peter White Public Library on Saturday, October 7, at 3:00 pm in the library’s community room. Sean will give a performance and educational demonstration on the Kora, an ancient 21-stringed harp from West Africa. He will feature traditional songs that are the heart and soul of the Kora’s musical repertoire in addition to some of his own personal compositions.

The Kora is native to the Mande peoples who live within the countries of Gambia, Senegal, Mali, Guinea, and Guinea Bissau. The music is traditionally played by oral and musical historians known as Griots (Gree-ohs). The Kora is a melodic and seemingly peaceful instrument, which is somewhat contrary to its musical repertoire. Many songs tell ancient stories of war and hardship, while others praise people of high political status and those who helped expand the Mande Empire. While the Kora is only 300 years old, some commonly played songs can be traced back 800 years to the Mande empire's founding.

Sean has studied extensively under the instruction of Malamini Jobarteh and Moriba Kuyateh of Brikama, The Gambia, and Kane Mathis of Brooklyn, NY, and he has been featured at numerous festivals in the US, Gambia, and Senegal.

There is no admission charge to the attend the concert thanks to sponsorship by the Carroll Paul Memorial Trust Fund of the Peter White Public Library. For more information, visit www.pwpl.info or call 226-4318.
