The Little Brown Jug: The Michigan Minnesota Football Rivalry

Wednesday September 10, 2014: 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm -- Malletts Creek Branch: Program Room

This event is intended for adults.
This event will be recorded

When the Michigan Wolverines arrived in Minneapolis to battle the Minnesota Gophers in 1903, a simple 30¢, five-gallon Red Wing stoneware water jug began football’s first rivalry trophy game. The Little Brown Jug has been the subject of conspiracy theories, theft, national championships, and most of all pride, with each game’s victor prominently displaying the jug on its campus—until it is fought for again.

Authors Ken Magee and Jon M. Stevens will discuss their new book (just released September 1), The Little Brown Jug: The Michigan-Minnesota Football Rivalry, and the history of this legendary contest between the two opposing teams. They will also have a replica of the Little Brown Jug that was made in the 1940s along with other memorabilia related to the rivalry.

Book signing and copies of the book will be for sale at this event.

Film & Discussion: 'Valentine Road'

Thursday September 25, 2014: 7:30 pm to 9:30 pm -- Michigan Theater

2013 Sundance film, "Valentine Road" will be screened at the Michigan Theater followed by a Q&A with its director, Marta Cunningham.

In 2008, eighth-grade student Brandon McInerney shot his classmate Larry King twice in the back of the head. With keen insight, the film connects the human wreckage of Larry’s and Brandon’s troubled lives—both bullied and both searching for a sense of belonging.

This event is sponsored by U-M Library in conjunction with Film Forward and AADL. For more information and for a list of sponsors please see Sundance.org. There will be no charge for admission to this event and the film is not rated.
