Learning Series: The Mendelssohns

Felix Mendelssohn is rightfully considered one of history’s greatest composers. His sister, Fanny, is arguably another one. Sadly, as a 19th- century woman, her musical talent was never recognized. Her only public success came with music published under Felix’s name. This course will explore the lives and compositions of this talented sibling duo.

Joe Marchio, Music Director of both the Chatham Chorale and the First Congregational Church of Chatham, holds degrees from the College of Wooster, Yale University, and Boston Conservatory.

This course is part of the 2019 Fall Learning Series, sponsored by the Friends of the Eldredge Public Library. A $15 donation per course is suggested. Please register at the Eldredge Public Library.

This program takes place at St. Christopher's Episcopal Church, 625 Main Street, Chatham.

Reading in the Kitchen: A Cookbook Group

Attention all cookbook lovers! We invite you to join Reading in the Kitchen: A Cookbook Group at the Eldredge Public Library. We will meet the 1st Tuesday of each month to taste recipes and discuss cookbooks! Each month we will choose a cookbook. You let us know which recipe you will cook to share with the other members, and then we all meet to taste the recipes and talk about the cookbook and your cooking experience! A great way to meet fellow foodies and expand your cooking experience.

This month's selection is Dinner for Everyone by Mark Bittman. Copies will be available at the library approximately one month in advance. To sign up, please contact Lorna Dzialo at ldzialo@clamsnet.org or by calling the Front Desk 508-945-5170. Registration is required, this group cannot accommodate drop-ins.
