National Library Week Event: Wild Swan Theater Presents 'Shipwrecked!'

Monday April 9, 2012: 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm -- Downtown Library: Multi-Purpose Room

It is the 100th anniversary of one of the most incredible shipwrecks of all time - the sinking of the Titanic. With this in mind, AADL invites you to a special National Library Week presentation of Wild Swan Theater's new play - "Shipwrecked!"

Set in 1893, "Shipwrecked!" is about a Detroit family of three: mom, dad, and 12 year old son--who carry cargo on the Great Lakes for their livelihood. They set sail on Lake Huron through "Shipwreck Alley" with a load of Christmas trees from the Upper Peninsula only to be battered by one of the fierce November storms that have over the years imperiled thousands of ships on the Great Lakes.

This event is for grade 3 and up, as well as adults and teens.
