Morning Book Group: The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson thumbnail Photo

Morning Book Group: The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson

It is the story of four seekers who arrive at a notoriously unfriendly pile called Hill House: Dr. Montague, an occult scholar looking for solid evidence of a "haunting"; Theodora, the lighthearted assistant; Eleanor, a friendless, fragile young woman well acquainted with poltergeists; and Luke, the future heir of Hill House. At first, their stay seems destined to be merely a spooky encounter with inexplicable phenomena. But Hill House is gathering its powers—and soon it will choose one of them to make its own.

LLL Series: What Is It About Time and Human Nature in the Time of Covid? thumbnail Photo

LLL Series: What Is It About Time and Human Nature in the Time of Covid?

Guest Speaker: Dr. Larry McKenna, Assistant Professor, Co-Founder of Center for Climate Change Education, FSU

As Covid ebbs, we wonder which changes we’ve made to our lives will stand the test of time. One of them is our relationship with time. But what is time? Dr. McKenna will discuss the nature of time, including a brief history of its measurement and how the most precise clocks would lose only a fraction of a second over a 13 billion year lifetime of the universe.

This free Thursday 7pm lecture series via Zoom is a partnership between Framingham State University (FSU) and Framingham Public Library. If you have not registered before, go to to join our mailing list and to receive Zoom links for each lecture.
