The series kicks off on Saturday evening, September 17th, featuring folk duo Bookmatch. The coffeehouse is located at the Canton Public Library, 786 Washington Street, Canton MA 02021.

Doors open at 6:45 PM; music starts at 7:30 PM.

Two kindred spirits joined by their love for acoustic music that touches the heart, G Rockwell and Micah Nicol marry virtuosic instrumentals and tender vocals in their project Bookmatch.

The Family Roe: An American Story, with Joshua Prager (Zoom)
 
 
This program is presented in partnership with the Morrill Memorial Library in Norwood.
 
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.
