Ladies of the Lights
What was life like for a lighthouse keeper on the Great Lakes? Find out when Patricia Majher, author of Ladies of the Lights: Michigan Women in the U.S. Lighthouse Service visits the library on Thurs., Mar. 3, 7-8:30 PM at the Downtown Library.
This most unusual occupation, especially for women, isn't very well-known even though the United States Coast Guard maintains a list of all the women who were employed as lightkeepers calling them "trailblazers."
In addition to being a fine author, Patricia is also editor of Michigan History Magazine which is published by the Historical Society of Michigan. The Historical Society of Michigan is dedicated to preserve, protect, interpret and celebrate the rich and diverse history of our state
