Michigan Lighthouse historian and expert Dianna Stampfler will be speaking Wednesday at the Sage Branch Library in Bay City. The presentation, entitled “Ladies of the Lights‘ , is a lecture on the history of women who had the dangerous and physically demanding job of a light house keeper along the shores of Michigan. The presentation begins at 6:00, and runs until 7:30.
Stampfler will be speaking again on Thursday, July 13th at the Pinconning Library at 6:00pm with a lecture called “Uniquely Michigan.” The Auburn Area Branch Library will also host a presentation by Stampfler on August 10th.
Stampfler has been presenting about the area’s historic lighthouses, ghost towns, and islands in Michigan since 1997.
