Main Library Book Club: The Summer Before the War by Helen Simonson

Join us to discuss this breathtaking novel of love on the eve of World War I that reaches far beyond the small English town in which it is set. “A novel to cure your Downton Abbey withdrawal . . . a delightful story about nontraditional romantic relationships, class snobbery and the everybody-knowseverybody complications of living in a small community.”–The Washington Post

Poetry Workshop

Led by Alan Feldman, Professor Emeritus at Framingham State University

This drop-in class welcomes serious poets of all ages and levels of experience who would like to participate for one or more sessions. Each session begins with a discussion of a topic in poetry leading to a brief in-class assignment. Poets who wish to have their work discussed need to provide copies to distribute during the session. Alan’s new collection, Immortality, was most recently awarded the Massachusetts Book Award for Poetry in 2016.
