Student cast and crew pull off a double fall play schedule. One show opened Thursday and another tonight.
Sometimes indecisiveness is a good thing. It certainly is for the University Liggett School’s drama program, which is currently producing two plays at the theater at the Cook Road campus – Moon Over Buffalo and A Raisin in the Sun.

By contrast, Raisin is an exploration of a family torn between each member's dreams, racial issues and the ultimate decision of whether a family united is stronger than one that pulls apart.

The Central Library is home to modern art, including a Wassily Kandinsky Aubusson tapestry.
The Grosse Pointe Public Library is as much a home to fine modern art as it is to books and periodicals. Some of the artwork, however, is easily glossed over by patrons who might not know what they are looking at—or why it is there. For instance, on the north wall of the main reading room of Central Library hangs an unassuming tapestry. A little sun-faded, this tapestry has hung in the same place since the building was constructed in 1953. It is not hanging there by accident. It was selected by the Library’s Bauhaus architect, Marcel Breuer, specifically to hang where it is now. Breuer thought that the library “building would be a synthesis of architecture, furnishings, and fine art.” The generous donation of W. Hawkins Ferry, the …
