This is a twist on traditional storytimes -- we'll enjoy literacy-based stories, songs, rhymes, and movements while using preloaded iPads and preselected apps as well as print format books. We'll learn how to evaluate and use apps and devices together with your little one in order to best facilitate active learning and digital literacy in a thoughtful and strategic way. Due to the limited number of iPads available*, we ask that you please register for this event! We recommend that each child be partnered with an adult 1 to 1 in order to encourage interactive learning. iPad Storytime is designed for children age 3-5 plus a caregiver. *Thanks to a generous grant from the Kiwanis Club of East Lansing, we can currently provide 9 iPads per session.

The Vernons of Newport in the River of Silver
History Department, Michigan State University – Professor Alex Borucki of UC Irvine's Department of History will present “The Vernons of Newport in the River of Silver: Slave Trading and Circuits of Silver in the Atlantic-Oriented Global Markets of the Eighteenth Century." Please join us in room 255 of Old Horticulture at 4PM on March 22. This presentation examines the slave voyage conducted by the ship Ascension (1795-1797) connecting Rhode Island, Mozambique, and the Río de la Plata (The River of Silver, today’s Argentina and Uruguay), as a window into the eighteenth-century slave trade to Spanish South America. In this era, the slave trade became the key to accessing Spanish American consumers and silver for foreign traders. As a result, Spanish American silver entered English, Dutch, and Portuguese commercial circuits beneficial to metropolitan merchants and public revenues. The story of the Ascension’s captives goes beyond Anglo-American conceptions of the Middle Passage born out of the triangular trade, as the yearlong ordeal of these Africans involved Indian Ocean embarkation, Atlantic crossing to Montevideo, a journey on oxen-carts throughout the Pampas and on mule-trains across the Andes into Chile, and their final reshipment in the Pacific to Lima. Professor Borucki is the author of From Shipmates to Soldiers: Emerging Black Identities in the Rio de la Plata (University of New Mexico Press, 2015).

Frances Luke Accord / Michael Beauchamp (of Red Tail Ring)
Pump House Concerts – Save the date for the very talented, modern folk/jazz duo, Frances Luke Accord! With very special guest, Michael Beauchamp of Red Tail Ring! 7PM, 6:30 doors, All ages --- "Frances Luke Accord are the definition of lean-in music." - Joni Deutsch, NPR's Mountain Stage Frances Luke Accord are some of our very favorite musicians, songwriters, and people. We couldnt recommend their debut LP, FLUKE, highly enough. - Darlingside --- http://franceslukeaccord.com/video/ --- Frances Luke Accord are an independent Chicago-based duo hailing originally from South Bend, Indiana. Both dedicated multi-instrumentalists and meticulous songwriters, Nicholas Gunty and Brian Powers distinguish their music with genre fluidity, buttery harmonies and acoustic ensembles. Although prevailingly a modern folk band, FLA sip copious inspiration from Americana, jazz, soul, and rock. Since forming during their senior year at the University of Notre Dame, Frances Luke Accord's approach to music has marked a boundless evolution. In December of 2012 the duo released their first record, Kandote, a not-for-profit, intercultural collaboration with the Barefoot Truth Childrens Choir of Kkindu, Uganda an endeavor that continues to support the primary education and musical aspirations of the choir. Bringing their world/folk sound to Chicago in the summer of 2013, the duo quickly garnered local and regional attention for their captivating live performances and stunning self-produced releases, including the Queen for Me EP (April 2014), Live @ Strobe (April 2015), and, most notably, their debut full-length album, Fluke (May 2016). Fluke, FLA's pseudo-self-titled introduction to a national audience, is a self-produced vocal tour-de-force that leaps quickly and definitively into the canopy of contemporary art. It is dreamlike and philosophical, haunting and whimsical. Its melodies evoke a noir film, a Spanish folktale, an enigmatic egoeye. However you pin it, something in the music is turning heads. Whether evidenced by their invitation to perform on NPR's Mountain Stage Radio Show with Larry Groce, tours with Darlingside and Anaïs Mitchell, official showcase at Folk Alliance International's 2017 Conference, or the $16K Kickstarter that funded Fluke, Frances Luke Accord's compositions take the listener by the ear, pull the rug from beneath her feet, and leave her deliciously airborne. Listen.
