The 33 1/3 Club

Ever look back and think about how listening to music was an activity all on its own? 

Remember scouring over the artwork on the cover of your new vinyl LP and hoping the lyrics were printed on the inner sleeve.  Now is your chance to spin some vinyl on the turntable in a group setting and immerse yourself in the music.  The 33 1/2 club at the Townsend Public Library will meet and listen to classic LP's. 

Discussion will focus on, but certainly will not be limited to, the time period, the tracks, the album cover art and the artist.  Join in for a listen to this months edition.

Join Dave Schuttler, Bradley Sherwood  and Ward Clark for an evening of music and conversation!

Hall of Presidents Book Club: American Lion: Andrew Jackson in the White House by John Meacham
7:30 PM - 8:30 PM

American Lion: Andrew Jackson in the White House by John Meacham

 
Join us as we read through the presidents of the United States!
The idea is to not only learn a few things, but to get a deeper understanding the role the presidency has played in this nation's history!
In the midst of a recent discussion, we came to the realization that our knowledge of much of American history was wanting. We decided to undertake a journey through the American presidency from beginning to end starting with George Washington, reading a biography of each president in the order they served. The hope is that this will acquaint us with not only each President, but also the history of the time in which they lived and died.

As the Trump administration addresses the topic of “fake news” through its communication, it is important to examine the role that "fake news" plays in our everyday lives.

Join Assistant Professor Kyle Moody (Communications Media, Fitchburg State University) for a talk on fake news and media consumption in the 21st century. This will cover a wide variety of topics, ranging from the history of yellow journalism to the role that reporters play in media consumption and circulation, along with how news is spread and affects us all in our modern times.

Finally, it will include a brief discussion of "what can we do?" that will cover some basic strategies for information literacy to enable us to become better consumers of news media.

Discussion will focus on, but certainly will not be limited to, the time period, the tracks, the album cover art and the artist.  Join in for a listen to this months edition.

Hall of Presidents Book Club: Martin Van Buren by Ted Widmer
7:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Martin Van Buren by Ted Widmer

 
Join us as we read through the presidents of the United States!
The idea is to not only learn a few things, but to get a deeper understanding the role the presidency has played in this nation's history!
In the midst of a recent discussion, we came to the realization that our knowledge of much of American history was wanting. We decided to undertake a journey through the American presidency from beginning to end starting with George Washington, reading a biography of each president in the order they served. The hope is that this will acquaint us with not only each President, but also the history of the time in which they lived and died.

The Vintage Vocal Quartet brings to life the sweet harmonies of the big band era!

Image may contain: 4 people, people smiling, people sitting, shoes and indoor

If you love vocal harmony and swing music, the Vintage Vocal Quartet has your number!

The group's repertoire is inspired by groups like the Glenn Miller Orchestra's Modernaires, the Nat King Cole Trio, the Delta Rhythm Boys, the Andrews Sisters, and the Tommy Dorsey band's Pied Pipers. Singers who grew from this hothouse of vocal talent include Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, Mel Tormé, Connee Boswell, Jo Stafford, and so many more.
 
The four singers of the VVQ also play instruments, so they pack a big sound into a small package.
The members are:
Taylor O'Donnell - voice/piano
David Thorne Scott - voice/bass
Adam Gautille - voice/trumpet
Paul Pampinella - voice/guitar
