The Friends of the Hackley Public Library cordially invites you to attend the 40th Annual Charles Henry Hackley Distinguished Lecture in the Humanities presented by Dr. Keith A. Crandall on Thursday, May 26th at 7:30 PM at the Muskegon Museum of Art and on online via Zoom. The Friends will hold a reception at the Hackley Public Library following the lecture.
Dr. Crandall's presentation, ”Genomics and the Microbiome,” will explore the concepts of how our DNA impacts our susceptibility to disease and the efficacy of treatment as well as the impact of our microbiome on our health.
Dr. Crandall, a graduate of Mona Shores High School, is the Founding Director of the Computational Biology Institute at the George Washington University and a Professor in the Milken Institute School of Public Health and the Department of Biological Sciences. The central component of his work is on the development and testing through computer simulation of methods for the analysis of DNA sequence data. Since 1981, the Friends of the Hackley Public Library has presented the Charles H. Hackley Distinguished Lecture Award to an individual who has a tie to Muskegon and who, in his or her work and life, has distinguished themselves in the humanities.
Commendation awards will be presented to Martha Ferriby, the former Director of Hackley Public Library, and Carol Ann Balcom, a long-time and integral member and past president of the Friends of the Hackley Public Library.
The Friends of the Hackley Public Library is grateful to the sponsors of the 40th Annual Charles Henry Hackley Distinguished Lecture in the Humanities for their support: John and Kathleen Snider Floyd and Caron Farmer Nolan & Shafer, PLC Paul M. and Patricia Y. Ladas
"I love the 2nd Hand Prose Bookstore for gently used books, both hardbound and paperback, all very reasonably priced! They also have several very nice items for purchase, such as a great sturdy shopping bag, nice brass commemorative bookmark,, a large poster of the library, coffee mug and a wonderful laser-etched brick that actually came from the library during renovations. Even my children love to shop there for inexpensive fun books to read as well as for Birthday, Christmas or other special occasion gifting ideas "
