The cold doesn’t bother us!  Throw on your lab coat and experiment with creating new colors out of frozen paint.  Each color will start off as a frozen ice cube.  As you paint the cube will melt and will change your artwork.

yooper talk

Kathryn Remlinger, author of the forthcoming book Yooper Talk, will be at HPL to talk about her new book.
“Yooper Talk is a fresh and significant contribution to understanding regional language and culture in North America. The Upper Peninsula of Michigan is historically, geographically and culturally distinct. Struggles over land, labor and language during the past 150 years have shaped the variety of English spoken by resident Yoopers, as well as how they are viewed for outsides.
Drawing on sixteen years of fieldwork, including interviews with seventy-five lifelong residents of the UP, Kathryn Remlinger examines how the idea of a unique Yooper dialect emerged. Considering UP English in relation to other regional dialects and their speakers, she looks at local identity, literacy practices, media representations, language attitudes, notions of authenticity, economic factors, tourism, and contact with immigrant and Native American languages. The book also explores how a dialect becomes a recognizable and valuable commodity: Yooper talk (or "Yoopanese") is emblazoned on t-shirts, flags, postcards, coffee mugs, and bumper stickers.
Yooper Talk explains linguistic concepts with entertaining examples for general readers and also contributes to interdisciplinary discussions of dialect and identity in sociolinguistics, anthropology, dialectology, and folklore.
