Discover Historic New England: Dining Out In Boston, a culinary history
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

book jacketOver the years, Boston has been one of America’s leading laboratories of urban culture, including restaurants, and Boston history provides valuable insights into American food ways. Come learn about more than two centuries of culinary trends in Boston restaurants and discover this rich and hitherto unexplored side to the city’s past.

The city was a pioneer in elaborate hotel dining, oyster houses, French cuisine, student hangouts, ice cream parlors, the twentieth-century revival of traditional New England dishes, and contemporary locavore and trendy foodie culture. In stories of the most-beloved Boston restaurants of yesterday and today—illustrated with an extensive collection of historic menus, postcards, and photos our presenter, James C. O’Connell will surely whet your intellectual and nostalgic appetite.

O'Connell has written six books and many articles on planning and New England history, including Becoming Cape Cod: Creating a Seaside Resort. He is a planner for the National Park Service and teaches in the City Planning-Urban Affairs Program at Boston University.

Quincy Student Immigrant Showcase
6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

mentoring photoAll are invited to come and see a multimedia project showcase from the participants in Quincy Asian Resources, Inc.'s (QARI's) U&I mentoring program. 

Partcipants in the mentoring program will share their first multimedia project, "The Most Important Person in My Life." In the videos they interview their most important person and say something to that person as well. The goal of this project is to give students an opportunity to interview someone who is really important to them and ask questions that they don't normally have a chance to ask.

In partnership with Quincy Public Schools and Mass Mentoring Partnership, QARI hosts a one-on-one mentoring program between high school student mentors and new immigrant students at Atlantic Middle School and Central Middle School. The goals of the program are to support the academic progress of the mentees, prepare mentees for their transition into high school, and help mentees adapt to life in the United States through healthy bi-culturalism. Through building mentees’ social skills, mentors improve their own communication skills, develop their ability to relate to others, and gain a greater cultural awareness.

As an army medic, he single-handedly evacuated the wounded from behind enemy lines, braved fire while tending to soldiers and was wounded by a grenade and hit by snipers. Doss was the first conscientious objector awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor.

"Hacksaw Ridge is one of the best films of 2016. And the victory is all the more sweet for Gibson in that he succeeds on his own weird terms."--San Francisco Chronicle

Directed by Mel Gibson. Starring Andrew Garfield, Luke Bracey, Sam Worthington, Teresa Palmer. Theatrically released in 2016. 139 Minutes; Rated R for intense prolonged realistically graphic sequences of war violence including grisly bloody images.

Feature Film @North Quincy: Doctor Strange
2:00 PM - 4:30 PM

movie stillAfter a tragic car accident, talented neurosurgeon Doctor Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) must put ego aside and learn the secrets of a hidden world of mysticism and alternate dimensions. Based in New York City's Greenwich Village, Doctor Strange must act as an intermediary between the real world and what lies beyond, utilizing a vast array of metaphysical abilities and artifacts to protect the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

"Doctor Strange is thrilling in the way a lot of other Marvel movies are. But what makes it unique is that it’s also heady in a way most Marvel movies don’t dare to be. It’s eye candy and brain candy."--Entertainment Weekly

Directed by Scott Derrickson. Starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Benedict Wong, Benjamin Bratt, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Mads Mikkelsen, Michael Stuhlbarg, Rachel McAdams, Scott Adkins, and Tilda Swinton. Theatrically released in 2016. 115 Minutes; Rated PG-13 for sci-fi violence and action throughout, and an intense crash sequence.

Sponsored by the Friends of the Thomas Crane Public Library.

Music and Movement with Rubi for ages 0-4
10:00 AM - 10:30 AM

Sing and dance with Rubi Lichauco! Rubi brings her popular preschool program to Quincy so put on your favorite dancing shoes and join us for this lively mix of music and movement for children ages 0-4 accompanied by an adult.

This program has become so popular there isn’t room to move and dance as we would like so we have decided to split the group in two.  No registration is required; when the 10:00 session fills we will close the doors.  Please spend some time in the children’s room choosing books or playing with our early literacy activities while you wait for the 10:30 session.  Thank you for your cooperation we really think 2 smaller groups will make this program more fun for everyone.
