Ypsilanti District Library to celebrate Rosa Parks and chocolate this week

By Ann Dwyer

Both the Ypsilanti District Library branches on Whittaker Road and Michigan Avenue will hold events on Monday. The only problem will be deciding between honoring an icon from the Civil Rights movement or delicious chocolate.

Celebrate Rosa Parks 100th Birthday with a screening of "The Rosa Parks Story" at the Whittaker Road branch. This 2003 film stars Angela Basset. There will be a post-film discussion and a drawing for a free book.

The Michigan Ave. branch will celebrate the best part of Valentine's Day with "For the Love of Chocolate." There, you'll learn about the history of chocolate, different types of chocolate and how chocolate is made. And more importantly, samples will be provided.

Rosa Parks event: Monday, Feb. 04, 2013. 6:30 p.m. Free. 5577 Whittaker Road, Ypsilanti. 734-482-4110 ext. 1377.

I think this headline should be rethought for obvious reasons.

I really had to think about this comment and I hate to say it you get a negative vote from me. As for the events? I think you have to register for the chocolate one. Go the website to find out and avoid disappointment.
