Eamon McCarthy Earls is the author of "Wachusett: How Boston's 19th Century Quest for Water Changed Four Towns and a Way of Life." 
He will tell the untold story of the Wachusett Reservoir—the largest hand-dug reservoir in human history, once the biggest civil 
engineering projects on Earth and even today a Massachusetts engineering marvel. From 1895 to 1908, one of the largest civil engineering 
projects in New England history transformed four Massachusetts towns (Clinton, Sterling, Boylston, and West Boylston) creating Boston's 
first truly modern water supply system -- the Wachusett Reservoir and aqueduct. This book, for the first time, tells the story of this 
engineering marvel as well the human dramas of the project: strikes, murders, and the partial demolition of three towns. 

Registration required.

    Contact: Judith Walz   508-395-4754   judith.foxbee@gmail.com
   
Are you working on a short story, a screenplay, essays, or a novel? Is it a story you feel must be told or are you experimenting with something new? Whether you are new to writing, in the middle of several projects, or have published work, this group is for you! The goals of this meetup are to empower each other by offering constructive feedback, encourage one another to push the boundaries of our writing, establish an online presence, and if it's your goal, to get published. We will meet the 3rd Saturday of every month.

Ground Rules:

1. You don't have to have a piece of writing to share in order to attend. 

2. Please limit submissions to no more than 4 pages so that we may have time to offer you proper feedback. 

3. Bring printed copies of your writing to share, and yes, you are going to have to estimate. If you don't bring enough, that's okay, we can share. 

4. Make sure your writing has: your name, the title of the piece, and PAGE NUMBERS. This makes it easier for us to follow along.

5. You are encouraged to read a section of your writing with the group. This is a great way to hear the story through your voice and get a sense of the plot and characters. You are also encouraged to tell us what you'd like us to focus on (e.g. character development, style, structure, flow, etc.).

6. Please be mindful that it is not always easy to share personal writing, so be constructive when offering feedback and refrain from focusing on mechanical issues. The reader can check those when they receive everyone's marked copies.

Judith Walz has been organizing and running events and groups long before Meetup.com was a thing. She's a teacher turned entrepreneur who took her passion for traveling around the world and writing, and combined it into a successful business. She loves meeting new people and connecting them with each other to form lasting friendships and business connections.

Are you working on a short story, a screenplay, essays, or a novel? Is it a story you feel must be told or are you experimenting with something new? Whether you are new to writing, in the middle of several projects, or have published work, this group is for you! The goals of this meetup are to empower each other by offering constructive feedback, encourage one another to push the boundaries of our writing, establish an online presence, and if it's your goal, to get published. We will meet the 3rd Saturday of every month.

Ground Rules:

1. You don't have to have a piece of writing to share in order to attend. 

2. Please limit submissions to no more than 4 pages so that we may have time to offer you proper feedback. 

3. Bring printed copies of your writing to share, and yes, you are going to have to estimate. If you don't bring enough, that's okay, we can share. 

4. Make sure your writing has: your name, the title of the piece, and PAGE NUMBERS. This makes it easier for us to follow along.

5. You are encouraged to read a section of your writing with the group. This is a great way to hear the story through your voice and get a sense of the plot and characters. You are also encouraged to tell us what you'd like us to focus on (e.g. character development, style, structure, flow, etc.).

6. Please be mindful that it is not always easy to share personal writing, so be constructive when offering feedback and refrain from focusing on mechanical issues. The reader can check those when they receive everyone's marked copies.

Judith Walz has been organizing and running events and groups long before Meetup.com was a thing. She's a teacher turned entrepreneur who took her passion for traveling around the world and writing, and combined it into a successful business. She loves meeting new people and connecting them with each other to form lasting friendships and business connections.

Join librarian Roxane Starkin as she moderates this new and unique book club for busy families looking to do something fun together during the winter months. Here's the idea: listen to the book together - in the car, at home, wherever. The club will meet on December 26, January 30, and February 27 from 6:30-7:30 pm to talk about the story (with the added fun of discussing the narration).

We will be choosing books appropriate for students in grades 4 through 6. Parents, Grandparents, Guardians are all welcome to participate.
