Reading Glasses Book Group

Join Reading Glasses - a casual and collaborative book group for adults in their 20s and 30s! Each month we take turns presenting our choices for our next read and we vote on a favorite. If you've ever dropped out of a book group because you didn't like the books being chosen, give us a try! We're more than just a book group, we're friends talking about books.

Travel with us to Oman for a story of three sisters. This month we're reading Celestial Bodies by Jokha Alharthi, winner of the 2019 Man Booker International Prize. It's a family saga set against the changing cultural landscape of Oman, and is the first book by a female Omani writer to be translated into English.

Virtual - Abigail Adams - Presented by Sheryl Faye

She is sometimes considered to have been a founder of the United States and is now designated as the first Second Lady and second First Lady of The United States.

Adams’s life is one of the most documented of the first ladies: she is remembered for the many letters she wrote to her husband while he stayed in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, during the Continental Congresses. John frequently sought the advice of Abigail on many matters, and their letters are filled with intellectual discussions on government and politics. In one of her more famous letters she implores her husband and his colleagues, all of whom were male, to, “…remember the ladies…If particular care and attention is not paid to the Ladies we are determined to foment a Rebellion, and will not hold ourselves bound by any Laws in which we have no voice, or Representation.” Her letters also serve as eyewitness accounts of the American Revolutionary War home front.

This story starts off as an adult and goes back through her childhood and then back to an adult again. The show is appropriate for children and adults. Music & Sound design by Scooter Perrotta from LA Soundtrack

Since 2003, Sheryl Faye has masterfully brought to life important historical women to both children and adults across the U.S. In her one-woman shows, she immerses the audience in a multimedia learning experience that captivates viewers and sparks their interest to explore more.

Virtual - Jean Francois Millet’s Dandelions: How to Pastel Paint

Award-winning pastel artist Gregory John Maichack will present “Jean Francois Millet’s Dandelions: How to Pastel Paint,” a virtual pastel painting workshop for adults and teens Designed for both new beginners to advanced participants.

In this new, highly researched two-hour workshop, participants will have fun producing their own original pastel painting of Millet’s elegant “Dandelions.” Gregory Maichack visited the Museum of Fine Arts (MFA) Boston, which has the largest collection of Millet’s pastels, and he took pictures of “Dandelions,” which is in their permanent collection. Participants will create their own smaller version, choosing parts from Millet’s pastel painting that inspires them. All attendees will see why Vincent van Gogh was enamored with Millet's work and why Vincent did plant studies inspired by Millet. As always, all will keep their pastel paintings.

Teaching While Black: The Life and Lessons of Pioneering Educator Fanny Jackson Coppin

Prior to the Civil War era, no African American woman had earned a bachelor’s degree or been appointed to teach a class of white students. Fanny Jackson Coppin managed to do both. Born into slavery, she went on to become Oberlin College’s second Black female graduate, its first Black instructor, and a lifelong educator and activist. For over three decades, she served as principal of Philadelphia’s Institute for Colored Youth (now Cheyney University). This lecture explains how Coppin’s life shaped her teaching philosophy. From her own adversities and achievements, Coppin knew better than anyone that knowledge was power. As an educator, she dismissed disparities in students’ means, backgrounds, and preparation and began instead from the premise that every child has the ability to learn.

John Frederick Bell is an assistant professor of history at Assumption University in Worcester. Previously, he was a Spencer Dissertation Fellow at the National Academy of Education, a Kilachand Postdoctoral Fellow at Boston University, and a visiting lecturer at Brown University. He received his PhD in American Studies from Harvard. Prior to pursuing graduate study, he worked as an analyst at the National Archives and as a high school social studies teacher.

His research examines the intersecting histories of race, education, and social reform in nineteenth-century America. His forthcoming book, Degrees of Equality: Abolitionist Colleges and the Politics of Race, will be published by Louisiana State University Press.

Virtual - Indigenous Music in the 21st Century

This stereotype-defying virtual program celebrates the diverse sounds of Native America and introduces its greatest artists. 

Craig Harris is a master percussionist, educator, historian, storyteller, photographer, host of a Friday night radio show (bluegrasscountry.org) and the author of Crossing Borders: My Journey in Music (written with Max Baca of the Grammy-winning Los Texmaniacs) (May 2020). He is also the author of Bluegrass, Newgrass, Old-time and Americana Music (2018), The Band: Pioneers of Americana Music (2014/2017), Heartbeat, Warble and the Electric Powwow: American Indian Music (2016), and The New Folk Music (1993). Harris’ reviews, articles, and photographs have appeared in countless newspapers, magazines, and websites. Having played percussion for C.J. Chenier, Greg Brown, Jonathan Edwards, Rod MacDonald, Melanie, Merl Saunders, Rick Danko, and Los Texmaniacs, he is a member of Two Days Jeans and the Gaea Star Band (with whom he’s co-hosted the syndicated Gaea Crystal Radio Hour since 2014). After teaching music in public/charter schools for more than a quarter of a century, Harris launched Drum Away the Blues in 2009. Since then, he’s also presented programs on Indigenous music, America’s musical roots, Woodstock’s 50th anniversary, and rock and roll.
