Free Summer Concert: Tatiana Eva-Marie and the Avalon Jazz Band

Concert at Memorial Park, Summer Street, Maynard (Rain location: The Sanctuary, 82 Main Street, Maynard)

Nicknamed the Gypsy-jazz Warbler by the New York Times, Tatiana Eva-Marie is a transatlantic bandleader, singer, author, and actress based in Brooklyn. Best known for her work with the Avalon Jazz Band, she was acclaimed as a millennial shaking up the jazz scene by magazine Vanity Fair. She performs regularly in New York at various clubs, across the USA, and around the world.

Tatiana Eva-Marie’s singing is inspired by her own French and Romanian Gypsy heritage, a love for the Parisian art scene of the 1920s to the 60s, a fascination for New Orleans music, and a deep connection to the Great American Songbook. Through the lens of this musical kaleidoscope, in her current project, she explores the music of Django Reinhardt through her own original arrangements and lyrics.

Thank you to the supporters who made this event possible:

Maynard Cultural Council, Capital Group Properties, Dunn Family Foundation, Dunn Oil Company, The Faucetorium, Friends of the Maynard Public Library, Middlesex Savings Bank

Be sure to treat yourself to an ice cream at the Theatre Creamery across Summer Street before, during, or after the concert!

Assabet Valley Camera Club Bird Photography Exhibit

Roosevelt Room

Two dozen original art photos featuring birds of prey, songbirds, owls, water fowl, and others will be on display. The big, colorful images are submitted by active members of the Assabet Valley Camera Club. These members include many accomplished, prize-winning shutterbugs, as well as eager beginners trying to hone their skills at home and abroad. The highly colorful and fascinating bird species on display will include images of birds of prey in action and songbirds (some building new nests), plus others that are only seen in distant lands.
 
The camera club has many members (veteran photographers and beginners alike) who live in Maynard and surrounding communities. Their large framed images will be on public display–and for sale–and are suitable for home decoration or graceful and interesting gifts. Some of the income generated by sales of the photos will be donated directly to the Maynard Public Library, helping the library to continue serving the community.

The Family Roe: An American Story with Joshua Prager

Join Investigative Journalist Joshua Prager for a talk on his deeply researched book, The Family Roe: An American Story. With abortion rights poised to fall, The Family Roe, which was named a finalist for the 2022 Pulitzer Prize, offers extraordinary insight into the Supreme Court’s most divisive case and its plaintiff, Norma McCorvey.

The Family Roe is an engrossing family saga that confronts a half-century of propaganda and myth. Prager spent years with Norma; discovered her personal papers, a previously unseen trove; and witnessed her final moments. He also found the unknown Roe baby, Shelley Thornton, whose conception occasioned the lawsuit. Prager’s profile of Thornton for the Atlantic, adapted from the book, made worldwide front-page news. Hailed by critics on both sides of the debate, Prager’s astonishing book helps us to look with honest eyes at the five decades of struggle that brought us to where we are today.

Joshua Prager has written for the Atlantic, Vanity Fair, the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal. A former Nieman Fellow at Harvard, he is the author of The Echoing Green, a Washington Post Best Book of the Year.

We are delighted to welcome Tiziana Dearing, host of Radio Boston, as our moderator.

Presented by the Newton Free Library and  the Morrill Memorial Library in Norwood, and co-sponsored by 26 Massachusetts libraries.

Join Investigative Journalist Joshua Prager for a talk on his deeply researched book, The Family Roe: An American Story. With abortion rights poised to fall, The Family Roe, which was named a finalist for the 2022 Pulitzer Prize, offers extraordinary insight into the Supreme Court’s most divisive case and its plaintiff, Norma McCorvey.

Virtual - Haunted Lighthouses of New England with Author Jeremy D'Entremont
Lighthouses are picturesque icons that remind us of our rich maritime history, but they also have a "dark side." Lighthouses and ghost stories often seem to go hand in hand, as confirmed by the many horror stories and movies that have utilized lighthouses as their settings. This presentation will focus on some of the macabre tales of New England’s coastal beacons, including the lovelorn spirit known as Ernie at Connecticut's New London Ledge Light and the piano playing ghost of Maine's Seguin Light. Also included will be accounts of strange happenings at America's oldest light station, Boston Light, and at Portsmouth Harbor Lighthouse in New Castle, New Hampshire.

 

Jeremy D'Entremont is the president and historian of the American Lighthouse Foundation, historian for the U.S. Lighthouse Society, and the author of more than 20 books and hundreds of articles on lighthouses and maritime history. He's the producer and host of the U.S. Lighthouse Society's podcast, Light Hearted. He has appeared on the popular Ghost Hunters TV show, as well as Haunted Lighthouses of America on the Travel Channel. He has also appeared on the History Channel, Public Television, and National Public Radio speaking about lighthouses.

Presented in partnership with the Ashland Public Library. Registration required for this virtual event. Registration link coming soon.

Navigating College Admissions Successfully (Zoom)

The presentation will be led by Ron Feuchs and Jackie Tepper, partners at Stand Out For College, LLC. (www.standoutforcollege.com)

 

Please click here to register for this program: https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZMpf-6hrDkvGdLFXZg_-Jn-gqy9CabkYBRz

 

We are offering this Zoom presentation to help families understand how COVID has changed the college admissions landscape and how it affects Juniors, Sophomores and Freshmen.

The recent college admissions cycle was the most competitive to date. With most colleges continuing their test-optional policies as well as increasing their virtual outreach to high school students, many schools had record numbers of applicants. Record high numbers of applications result in record low acceptance rates which is what most popular colleges and universities experienced this past admissions cycle. 

We will discuss current college admissions trends, the importance of researching and visiting colleges to find schools that can be a good fit for your child, a timeline and other action steps that can be taken to make this school year productive and help reduce the stress around the college admissions process.

We’ll examine the holistic admissions review process, what admissions officers consider important when they review applicants, and how students can position themselves to develop a compelling narrative to increase their chances for admission.

We will also discuss the importance of community service, how it can provide an opportunity for personal growth and a way to showcase a student’s character. Admissions officers place great emphasis on a student’s character and how the student has been able to give back and help others. This program is recommended for parents and their high school teens.

Thomas Mickey: Victorian Flowers We Still Love

Join author and master gardener Thomas Mickey as he discusses his latest book All about Flowers: James Vick’s Nineteenth-Century Seed Company.            

 Nineteenth century seed company owner James Vick (1818-1882) believed in being fair and honest with his customers. That ethical stance   inspired his communication methods with his customers at a time when business owners thought ‘hype’ was essential.

 Vick had been an editor and writer before his seed business.  He wrote his catalog and monthly magazine with words inspired with what   would most help his customers.  

 The new book All about Flowers: James Vick’s Nineteenth-Century Seed Company illustrates how this nineteenth century seed company   influenced both gardeners and the kind of garden that became essential, the Victorian flower garden.

 The second half of the nineteenth century made possible a media-driven garden which included what the garden should look like, where it   should be in the home landscape, and what plants ought to be in it.  The seed catalogs, garden magazines, and horticultural papers of the   day suggested the plant varieties and indicated where to plant them in the garden.

 James Vick’s story has not been told yet. He is known in his hometown Rochester, New York but he played a key role in gardens everywhere   in nineteenth century America, whether of the wealthy, the middle class, the working class, or the city dweller.  Vick inspired gardeners   everywhere with his own passion for gardening with flowers and his desire to spread the love of floriculture

 Vick published yearly seed catalogs and a popular monthly garden magazine.  He systematized the seed business: growing seeds, drying   them, packaging them, and shipping them around the country, well before both Sears and Montgomery Ward sent out their first catalog.

           

The eighteenth-century gardens of England included flowers that became popular in the nineteenth century Victorian garden as well.   Vick sold many of the same flowers. They continue to be essential in today’s flower garden. The list includes garden favorites like the geranium, nasturtium, lobelia, dahlia, morning glory, and hollyhock. They are among the Victorian flowers that remain our favorites.
