Amidst the dead of winter, when most people are cozied up in bed or doing other winter activities, the city of Hamtramck comes alive with art, culture, and music via the Hamtramck Music Festival . You know the saying, March goes in like a lion, but comes out like a lamb? Hamtramck Music Festival is spearheading the entrance of March with one lion of a music festival this year. With around 200 bands playing 24 venues and restaurants, if you’ve always wanted to experience the best that Detroit’s music scene has to offer, HMF is the way to do it. This year starting on 2/27 through 2/29, the bars and venues of Hamtramck are packed with music lovers, artists and musicians… and every single occupiable space becomes a bad-ass venue. You can plan out an entire weekend’s worth of music, starting in the early evening and continuing into the early hours of the morning. Whether you’re walking (we recommend bringing hand warmers and wearing a warm coat!) or taking a shuttle from venue to venue … [Read more...] about Detroit Proud Playlist: Hamtramck Music Festival
If you think of historical fiction as a way of translating the past, does your perspective change when that fiction has been translated from another language? As some of the season’s best new historical novels suggest, this added dimension can make a book even richer, even more provocative. And none demonstrates that better than Frank Wynne’s translation of Alice Zeniter’s THE ART OF LOSING (Farrar, Straus & Giroux, 434 pp., $28), which won France’s Prix Goncourt des Lycéens. Its central character is a young Frenchwoman attempting to reconnect with the Algeria that shaped and then silenced her paternal grandfather. It’s a story that hurls the lives of mountain peasants into a violent political maelstrom. Naima, who works in an art gallery, is comfortable in the world of her French mother, and it isn’t until she reaches her late 20s that she feels compelled to piece together the story her immigrant father, Hamid, refuses to revisit: of how his father, Ali, in the midst of the … [Read more...] about The Ultimate Summer Escape: Historical Fiction
We’re also covering a feeding program for Florida manatees, manicured lawns, the clean-energy revolution, climate attribution studies, and more. By Christopher Flavelle The new infrastructure law signed by President Biden includes almost $50 billion to protect communities against climate change, the largest such investment ever. But, spending that money will test the president’s promise to pursue climate justice. Biden has pledged to direct 40 percent of climate spending to underserved places, including communities of color and small towns. Those places tend to be especially exposed to climate change, but usually have a harder time protecting themselves. Keeping that pledge could be a challenge. Much of the money for climate resilience goes through competitive grant programs, and those programs tend to favor wealthy, white, urban communities. That’s because, among other things, those communities have more money to hire experts to navigate the … [Read more...] about The Climate Bill Includes Billions in Funding. Will It Be Spent Fairly?
