In 1865, a series of gruesome murders occur in post-Civil War Boston. The Dante Club, a group of writers including Oliver Wendell Holmes and Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, is working secretly on a translation of Dante’s Divine Comedy and observe that the murders are imitating the tortures of Hell’s punishments in The Inferno. The group conducts its own investigation into the killings, racing to find the killer before their secret is exposed. Led by Kim Jung.
Events Calendar / October 17, 2019
Come join us to make some 3-D pumpkins with our new doodle pens! There are a limited amount of 3D pens so this program will be first-come, first-craft. This event is open to children 7 and olden but it is a harder craft which may require some help from a guardian.
Don’t forget to bring any outgrown Halloween costumes to put into our Costume Swap.
Join us for an evening of coloring, calming tea, and music. Whether you love to color for fun or enjoy filling in all the details, coloring is relaxing and therapeutic! We will provide colored pencils and coloring pages for all levels. You are welcome to bring your own materials. No registration is required.
Meets first and third Thursdays of the month.
Presented by Dr. David Smailes, Associate Professor, Political Science, Framingham State University
Presidents have always had a complicated relationship with the press. We will explore that relationship, beginning with Theodore Roosevelt’s skillful use of the press and ending with current debates surrounding the fairness of political coverage and whether truly “objective” political reporting can take place.
