Legacy: Bemidji Speaks – Cate Belleveau
May 14 @ 5:30 pm
Bemidji Speaks is a local lecture series that is set up similar to a Ted Talk, but on a smaller scale. Instead of spending resources outside the community, Bemidji Speaks looks to draw on the immense level of local talent in Bemidji and the surrounding area to inform and educate our community. This monthly lecture series will bring local authors, historians, and members of the community to our library to inform, educate, and enlighten our population.
Cate Belleveau is a playwright, educator, poet, travel writer and Artistic Director of Mask and Rose Women’s Theater. She will present on Mary Welsh Hemingway, native daughter of Walker and Bemidji, as well as the other Hemingway wives, while sharing portions of the play she wrote, “Mary 4 Martha 3 -NO Footnotes.”
This free Legacy Program is funded in part or in whole with money from the vote of the people of Minnesota on November 4, 2008 which dedicated funding to preserve Minnesota’s arts and cultural heritage.
