Nonie Gadsden Senior Curator of American Decorative Arts and Sculpture at the MFA provides a presentation on
The Saturday Evening Girls Club
The Saturday Evening Girls’ club was established in 1899 to provide cultural activities for Italian and Jewish immigrant girls who lived in the tenements of Boston’s North End. In 1908, the reform-minded club leaders founded a pottery to provide the girls with a clean and educational venue in which to earn money. They named the enterprise the Paul Revere Pottery. Nonie Gadsden will tell the remarkable story of the SEG and their Pottery through the life of Sara Galner, a young Jewish immigrant who worked there.
Please join us for this wonderful presentation and fabulous breakfast.
All are invited. This is free and open to the public
Join the Mystery Group as we discuss, Kill the Father by Sandrone Dazieri. Set in Italy, this thriller is described as, "wildly inventive and powerfully intense." "Two people, both shattered by their past...solve a series of killings and abductions." The story is only "the visible surface of something far more sinister."
We always look forward to welcoming new members. This event is free and open to the public.
