Life by Design Workshop

Are you living a life by your own conscious design?  Has everything been placed just right to give you the balance, space and time needed to help you flourish?  Would you say you are thriving, or surviving? It is so easy to get caught up in the right now, that we lose focus of what we really want and need in our lives.  We seldom have the time and space to take a pause, breathe and focus on what we want our life to look like and how we want to spend our valuable time.

Join us for this interactive workshop to help you set your sights on your life by design and begin to put the pieces together. The workshop will include fun exercises and guided meditation with the goal of leaving with a clear view of how you want your future to look--what you want to avoid--and what you can't wait to add.

Most people - even longtime Haverhill residents - aren’t aware of the important role Haverhill played in the 1692 Salem Witch Trials. Michael Cormier will talk about his upcoming play, SALTONSTALL (playing Nov. 1-4 at Northern Essex Community College’s Hawrylcik Theater) about the measures Haverhill’s own Judge Nathaniel Saltonstall took in opposition of the witch scare at a time when no one else dared speak out. Cormier will also discuss the fates of several women from Haverhill who were accused of witchcraft. This presentation promises to reveal an all-but-forgotten piece of local history that richly deserves our attention.

Stars & Lights Photography

New England photographer David Zapatka presents his dramatic nighttime Stars & Lights collection at the library on November 17. Over a four-year period, he captured 130 Northeast lighthouses in a way seldom seen--at night while they do their most important work. His presentation will highlight many Massachusetts lighthouses photographed during specific conditions: clear new-moon nights when stars are at their brightest. Zapatka compiled the images into his first book Stars & Lights: Darkest of Dark Nights, released in December 2017. Published by Vertel, it features lighthouses from eight Northeast States and stories of their capture. Copies will be on sale after his presentation. He continues his photographic adventures, and has lately been concentrating on Great Lake lighthouses.
