Event tickets currently available at the Aurora Public Library

Now available at the Aurora Public Library, through the Minnesota Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund:

4 FREE tickets to The Cloquet County Seat Theater Company's production of "Sweet." Show dates are September 29-30 and October 3-7 at 7:00 pm at the County Seat Theater, Cloquet.

Sweet is centered around three generations of the Carter family, headed by former boxing champ “Sweet” Clemmet Carter. When an enthusiastic sports writer enters their life asking to write a book about Clemmet’s boxing days, he discovers that some family secrets are better left buried.

These tickets, sponsored by Arrowhead Library System, are funded in part or in whole with money from Minnesota's Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
