On Saturday, April 27th, at 11:00 a.m., a screening of the documentary “Girl from Birch Creek: The Life and Legacy of Justice Rosalie Wahl,” will take place. It chronicles the life and legacy of Justice Rosalie Wahl, the first woman to sit on the Minnesota Supreme Court. She was also the winner of a 1987 Carleton honorary degree. (Justice Wahl is still alive though in very poor health.) This film was brought to life by Lightshed Productions, a Minnesota film production company, owned by John Kaul and Emily Haddad. The producers will be there to discuss the film following its showing. Coffee and refreshments precede the film showing at 10:45 a.m. Sponsored by the Carleton Humanities Center, the Cannon Valley Carleton Alums, and the League of Women Voters. FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.
