The book: "One snowy night a famous Hollywood actor slumps over and dies onstage during a production of King Lear. Hours later, the world as we know it begins to dissolve. Moving back and forth in time—from the actor's early days as a film star to fifteen years in the future, when a theater troupe known as the Traveling Symphony roams the wasteland of what remains—this suspenseful, elegiac, spellbinding novel charts the strange twists of fate that connect five people: the actor, the man who tried to save him, the actor's first wife, his oldest friend, and a young actress with the Traveling Symphony, caught in the crosshairs of a dangerous self-proclaimed prophet." There will be some snacks and tea, feel free to bring something to share! Address TBD, Waltham.
This is to gauge interest for a tour of Emily Dickinson's Homestead in Amherst, MA. They offer group tours for $10-13. If you are interested in joining, please RSVP Yes to this event. I will need to arrange this visit with the museum in advance and until I've done that, the date will be tentative. (You will not be confirmed until you've paid.) The drive is about 1hr45m and we would carpool from the Arlington-Medford-Waltham area. In addition to the homestead, we can explore Amherst (e.g. Yiddish Book Center and Amherst College) and grab lunch before heading back. More information to come! www.emilydickinsonmuseum.org https://www.emilydickinsonmuseum.org/about_the_museum
Get on the library waitlist now! The June book is Becoming by Michelle Obama. In her memoir, a work of deep reflection and mesmerizing storytelling, Michelle Obama invites readers into her world, chronicling the experiences that have shaped her—from her childhood on the South Side of Chicago to her years as an executive balancing the demands of motherhood and work, to her time spent at the world’s most famous address. With unerring honesty and lively wit, she describes her triumphs and her disappointments, both public and private, telling her full story as she has lived it—in her own words and on her own terms. Address TBD, Medford.
