Hitting the local book sales

Shoppers search for interesting titles Wednesday at the annual Friends of the Library book sale at the Virginia Public Library. The annual sale featuring thousands of books and DVDs continues from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday.

Cooking on the Oxcart Trails- Marie shares from the journal she wrote along the trail, which ran from Fort Riley, Kansas, up to Fort Abercrombie on the border of Minnesota and the Dakota Territories.

She details the difficulties of travel for the oxcarts, wagons, and people. The story includes frontier recipes and remedies, prepared over campfires or using camp ovens in rudimentary settings.

Jan Smith is a sought-after storyteller, educating audiences about early American land settlement and Nordic life. From over 150 entries, Jan was one of four chosen finalists in the 2017 National Storyteller Contest, held in Park Rapids.

Don’t miss this exciting enactment of 1858 history!

Root Beer Lady, The Musical- Barbara Cary Hall explains her journey of creating the vision of a musical, the process involved and how it came to pass. Through slides, video and live music, you’ll experience the creative process and take a look at the life of Dorothy Molter, Ely’s own local legend.

Many people’s first introduction to the story of Dorothy Molter was through Bob Cary’s book, Root Beer Lady. This past summer, Dorothy’s story reached new audiences through Barb’s original musical production based on the book. The Dorothy Molter Museum has been active in assisting Barb through her endeavor and are pleased that there will be another vehicle with which to move Dorothy’s story toward new audiences!

These programs, sponsored by Arrowhead Library System, was funded in part or in whole with money from Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
