Michigan Truth Tour visits LDL tonight

• Oct 10, 2018 at 12:34 PM

The Michigan Truth Tour will make a stop in Grand Haven at the Loutit District Library tonight (Oct. 10) with a screening of the documentary "Michigan Divided."

The screening begins at 7 p.m. in Program Room A.

The hour-long documentary captures the deeply divided culture, but also brings partisans together and illustrates how, at heart, there are also some values that are shared. The documentary debuted in March and will be shown frequently during the Michigan Truth Tour.

The Michigan Truth Tour plans up to 100 stops across through Election Day in November. The Center for Michigan is partnering with community leaders to hold town hall meetings and documentary screenings, discuss substantive local and state issues, distribute Michigan Facts & Issue Guides, profile communities in Bridge, and cover and fact-check prominent campaign events in your area.

For more information, visit www.loutitlibrary.org or call 616-842-5560, ext. 214. Loutit District Library is located at 407 Columbus Ave., Grand Haven.
