A Facility for Living
By Katie Forgette
Saturday, November 23, 2013 – 3:00 p.m.
Judy, Wally and Mitzie stay in an “assisted living” facility. They want to live a meaningful life but Nurse Claudia is a tough love practitioner who runs the place by the “book” and treats them as if their mission in life is to follow the rules and quietly take the final step. Resentment runs high when Joe Taylor enters the facility. His loyalty and tenacity take over and life at the facility turns into a hilarious camp of rebellion, disobedience and ingenuity.
The Alumni Association has reserved a block of seats for the matinee performance at 3:00 p.m. Tickets are $15. Theatre goers may wish to dine in the Midtown area or elsewhere after the show.

The Book Thief
By Zusak Markus
Thursday, October 24, 2013 7:00 – 9:00 p.m.
Home of Kay Hughes ’66 in Royal Oak
A New York Times bestseller for seven years running that’s coming to movie theaters on November 15, 2013, this Printz Honor book by the author of I Am the Messenger is an unforgettable tale about the ability of books to feed the soul.
Set during World War II in Germany, Markus Zusak’s groundbreaking novel is the story of Liesel Meminger, a foster girl living outside of Munich. Liesel scratches out a meager existence for herself by stealing when she encounters something she can’t resist–books. With the help of her accordion-playing foster father, she learns to read and shares her stolen books with her neighbors during bombing raids as well as with the Jewish man hidden in her basement before he is marched to Dachau. The country is holding its breath. Death has never been busier, and will become busier still.
To register, contact Druel Outley ’00 at (313) 342-3208 by October 20, 2013. Directions to Kay’s home will be provided when you register. The Book Thief is 562 pages and can be found on Amazon.com.

Since 1990, Forgotten Harvest has been in business to fight two problems: hunger and waste. Forgotten Harvest relieves hunger in the Detroit metropolitan community by rescuing surplus, prepared and perishable food and donating it to emergency food providers. In the fiscal year 2011 – 2012, Forgotten Harvest rescued a record 42 million pounds of food from a variety of sources such as grocery stores, restaurants, caterers, farmers, and other Health Department-approved sources. This donated food – that would otherwise go to waste – is delivered free of charge to emergency food providers throughout metro Detroit (Wayne, Oakland and Macomb counties). Forgotten Harvest covers 2,000-square miles to feed hungry people.
