6:30 PM - 7:30 AMAuthor Talk: Nocturnal Admissions



Location:  Pokagon Room
Contact:  
Description:  
In Nocturnal Admissions, Steven Adelman chronicles an improbable journey from small town to big town, filled with a cast of characters he could never have imagined. People named Hedda Lettuce, Jenetalia and Jiggy, and the likes of Rudy Giuliani, Sir Richard Branson, Leonardo DiCaprio, Bob Dylan, Snoop Dogg and other celebrities. Nocturnal Admissions illustrates how nightlife has long been a source for social change, transforming itself and us with it. Whether it be mainstream acceptance of gay culture or the genesis of Kardashian culture, pop culture has always taken its cues from nighlife, which in turn serves as a mirror reflecting the culture of that moment in time.
 
Presenter: Steven Adelman, born in Essexville, Mich., rose to prominence as a nightlife entrepreneur with clubs in New York and other major cities. Currently, he divides his time between Memphis and Union Pier. Much of Nocturnal Admissions was written in the New Buffalo Township Library.

6:30 PMHarbor Country Film Group



Location:  Pokagon Room
Contact:  Julie Grynwich
Description:  Pick a memory. Just one memory. One single memory that will stay with you for all of eternity. This is the premise of After Life, a tender and touching film by Tokyo-born director Hirokazu Koreeda and our film group choice for our July meeting. Here is a film that raises the question: What single memory do we want to keep and hold when everything else is erased from our minds? It happens as we see a group of people, set in Koreeda's special version of limbo, contemplate their respective lives and assess the memories they most deeply treasure. Roger Ebert has ranked Koreeda with the great humanists of the cinema. According to Ebert, his films "embrace the mystery of life, and encourage us to think about why we are here, and what makes us truly happy." Ebert's 1999 review gives After Life four stars. Film Group leader Eve Moran will introduce the film and lead a discussion after the screening. Expect the meeting to last a little over two hours. Free popcorn will be served.

6:30 PMThe St. Valentine's Day Massacre and the Birth of Forensics



Location:  Pokagon Room
Contact:  Julie Grynwich
Description:  
The brutal massacre of seven north side gang members in a Lincoln Park garage on February 14, 1929 shocked the nation. It also led to the creation of the first crime laboratory in the United States. The laboratory, started at Northwestern University with the help of concerned citizens, was set up within a year of the killings. And, there's a Berrien County connection--a few months after the murders, a county patrolman attempted to pull over a car, and was killed by its driver, Fred "Killer" Burke. The car was later found abandoned outside St. Joseph. In its trunk were weapons used in the massacre. Those weapons are currently kept by the country sheriff's office.
Presenter: William Sherlock is a retired Chicago and Illinois State forensics officer. He has taught forensics in Chicago and elsewhere, and has published many articles on the subject.
