The Traverse City Coast Guard Auxiliary next month will offer a marine GPS training class.

The Fishtown Preservation Society will present clean energy proponent Richard Munson, author of “Tesla: Inventor of the Modern,” at 5 p.m. Friday at Leelanau Books in Leland.

Love letters dating back to the 1860s are shared in a remake of “The Boizard Letters” sponsored by the Empire Area Heritage Group.
