Both fiction and non-fiction (journal writing and essays) are encouraged. Enthusiasm, a great sense of fun, and shared insights are used as learning tools instead of criticism. This free class is open to adults aged 18 and over. Space is limited. Register at the Reference Desk or call 781-786-6165. Pamela Wight has an M.A. in Literature and teaches creative writing classes in New England and the San Francisco Bay area.

A Cultural and Historical Reflection of the 1960's through the Music of the Beatles
2:00 PM

The Beatles are the most influential band in history. In 1964, their breakout moment was on The Ed Sullivan Show, where an estimated 73 million viewers tuned in to see the "Lads from Liverpool" in their first live American television performance. On April 4, 1964, they became the only artists to ever occupy the top five spots of the Billboard Hot 100 chart simultaneously. With landmark albums such as Revolver and Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, they consistently broke musical barriers. They have sold more than one billion records. As a testament to their longevity and popularity, their album titled 1, containing all their #1 hits, was the best-selling album of the 2000's. Their music is timeless and appeals to fans in every generation.

This performance combines live music with a multi-media presentation to explore, not only the music of the Beatles, but the influence they exerted in every area of the cultural landscape.

The presenter is Fran Hart, founding member of the Beatles Tribute Band 4EverFab.

This presentation is free and open to all and is supported in part by a grant from the Weston Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.

This month the group will discuss Gingerbread by Helen Oyeyemi:

An extraordinary recipe for gingerbread , handed down through generations of Harriet Lee's family, is used as a balm, a token of affection, an apology, and to ingratiate oneself with others. It's also the means by which, with one toxic addition, Harriet's daughter, Perdita, attempts suicide. After she is released from the hospital, Perdita returns home to complete her recovery and regain her ability to communicate. Surrounded by her childhood dolls, who magically speak for her, she asks her mother to tell her how she got there. 

The group will meet in the library's Reading Room. Ask for specially reserved book group copies of the book at the Circulation Desk.

Women's Suffrage in Massachusetts
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Massachusetts was at the center of the national struggle for women's rights. Long before the Civil War, Lucy Stone and other Massachusetts abolitionists opposed women's exclusion from political life. They launched the organized movement at the first National Woman's Rights Convention, held in Worcester. After the war, state activists founded the Boston-based American Woman Suffrage Association and Woman's Journal to lead campaigns across the country. Their activities laid the foundation for the next generation of suffragists to triumph over tradition. Author Barbara Berenson gives these revolutionary reformers the attention they deserve in this compelling and engaging story.

Please join us in the library's Community Room for this free lecture, sponsored by the Weston Historical Society.
