If you haven't had time to get out to the 15th annual East Lansing Film Festival yet -- go soon! This popular event continues through November 15.
The festival offers an assortment of documentaries, features and shorts, along with films from up-and-coming filmmakers. It is the largest and most diverse film festival in Michigan to screen independent and foreign features, documentaries, shorts and student films from around the world.
Sandra S. Clark, director of the Michigan Historical Center, will be the featured speaker at the "Evening at WKAR" preview of Ken Burns' "The Dust Bowl." The event will take place Thursday, November 15, at WKAR.
Clark has been the director of the historical center since 1991. Her history degrees are from Michigan State University.
"As someone who grew up in Kansas, it’s [the Dust Bowl] a topic I’ve long been interested in," she said.
Guests will see a 40-minute preview of the film, followed by Clark's talk. The event is free.
When I hear the words "Teddy Bear Picnic" I think of the delightful children's song. But the Teddy Bear Picnic that I'm most looking forward to isn't "in the woods at night," but right here at MSU during the middle of the day.
You may have noticed WKAR is busier than ever, with frequent screenings, like last night's Call the Midwife. Thanks to all who came — we hope you enjoyed the show! Our “Evening at WKAR” events have been a huge hit, so I am especially excited to announce our newest initiative, kicking off next week.
Participants in WKAR’s upcoming “QuizBusters Special Edition” competition were revealed on Thursday, September 6, at the station’s fall preview.
Playing the first game for the Green Team are Scott Westerman, President, MSU Alumni Association; Jen Sygit, Michigan-based singer and songwriter; Sue Carter, MSU School of Journalism faculty member, author and intrepid adventurer; and team captain Guy Sanville, Artistic Director, Purple Rose Theatre.
Fall is in the air! Kids are returning to school soon and it won't be long before the leaves turn. At WKAR, that means on thing in particular -- it's time to make your reservations for our Fall Preview on September 6.
