Ladies of the Light Lecture Comes to the RHPL

They were women before their time, taking on the romantic, yet dangerous and physically demanding job of tending to the beacons that protected the shoreline.

This topic will be discussed at the Rochester Hills Public Library on Tuesday, April 21 at 7 p.m. In all, some 40 women have been identified who excelled in this profession over the years — dating back as early as the 1840s and as recent as present day. Nearly 70 images of keepers, their families and their lights make up this presentation. Dianna Stampfler’s presentation includes readings from newspapers and autobiographies, as well as handouts including the list of featured ladies and additional reading references for attendees.

An established freelance writer, Dianna is a regular contributor to Michigan Blue Magazine and Grand Rapids Family Magazine, Michigan Home & Lifestyle Magazine and has also been published in Michigan Living, Michigan Travel Ideas, Lake Michigan Circle Tour & Lighthouse Guide, Country Lines, Tasters Guild International and Grand Rapids Magazine, among others.

Registration is required and open to those with a Rochester Hills Public library card. To register go to the Events Calendar at www.rhpl.org or call 248-656-2900.
