International Night - Antarctica
Thursday, September 25, 2014
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM
Harmony Library, Community Room

In Shackleton's Footsteps Join Bob Michael for a visit to Antarctica, where we will revisit many of the spectacular and remote places at the bottom of the world which saw Sir Ernest Shackleton's ("the Boss") heroic and successful attempt to save the lives of his stranded crew a century ago -- arguably the greatest story of survival, endurance, and true grit ever told. Among other sights, we'll walk on the ice of the Weddell Sea, where his ship became icebound and destroyed; Elephant Island, where he left his men and took off with two others in a lifeboat to sail 800 storm-wracked miles to impossibly awesome South Georgia Island, where we'll drink a toast to his grave; and we'll check out the Antarctic Peninsula. Bob Michael is a consulting petroleum geologist in Fort Collins. He has always had a fascination for extreme, end-of-the-earth places, and in particular deserts since falling in love with the Mojave in his Southern California childhood.

Authors of "The Heart of Everything That Is - The Untold Story of Red Cloud, An American Legend" An astonishing untold story of the American West. The great Sioux warrior-statesman Red Cloud was the only American Indian in history to defeat the United States Army in a war, forcing the government to sue for peace on his terms. At the peak of Red Cloud’s powers the Sioux could claim control of one-fifth of the contiguous United States and the loyalty of thousands of fierce fighters. But the fog of history has left Red Cloud strangely obscured. Now, thanks to the rediscovery of a lost autobiography, and painstaking research by two award-winning authors, the story of our nation’s most powerful and successful Indian warrior can finally be told.

History Comes Alive - Doc Susie
Friday, September 26, 2014
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Harmony Library, Round

Dr. Susan Anderson, or "Doc Susie," arrived in Fraser, Colorado, in 1907, at the age of 37. Thinking she would die within the year of the tuberculosis she had contracted while nursing patients in Greeley, beloved Doc Susie remained in Fraser and practiced medicine for nearly 50 years. She was a graduate of University of Michigan, an "authentic lady physician," licensed in both Colorado and Wyoming. She had to prove herself first in treating an injured horse before the locals would allow her to treat their injuries and illnesses. She went on to treat all types of maladies and injuries suffered in work on the railroad, in the lumber camps, and the local ranches, and to serve as coroner for the county during the tumultuous days of the construction of the Moffat Tunnel. She lived a full and vital life right up to the age of 90. Presented by Kathy Naples. Kathy is a librarian and has portrayed a number of Colorado pioneering women.
