Great Stories from Stoneham's Franklin Street
Recently, a website mentioned that Franklin Street was famous as the most direct route between Stoneham and Melrose. Granted that it also served as an important component of a stage line connecting Reading and Boston in 1833, thus allowing residents a reliable way to travel to the city. But Franklin Street is much more. It is now home to an 1842 residence dramatically rescued from demolition. Its roll call of “who was who” included business leaders, workers in a shoe factory and a clairvoyant physician. Professor Queen, a necromancer (magician), owned a lovely estate there. Join us for a lively exploration of the legacy passed on by this constantly-changing part of Stoneham.

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.
