The Orphan Train in Michigan February 21

Did you know 12,500 orphans from New York City and the Boston area were placed in Michigan
from 1854 to 1927? Al and David Eicher, research historians and television producers, spent a year and a half in research and gathering photographs about the Orphan Train Riders in Michigan. They will be in the library at 7pm on February 21 to talk about the stories of the orphans and the people who took them in. No registration necessary.
