We’re piecing together interesting readers…to read interesting pieces together. Come enjoy an evening of literary entertainment as you listen to selected works – from classic to contemporary, all revolving around the theme of “Home” – read aloud by members of our community. A moderated conversation about reading and “home” – including how we sometimes feel “at home” in the pages of a book – will follow
This event is produced by
A Lifely Read, with assistance from Fugitive Productions
The Silver Unicorn Bookstore in West Acton Village will be at this event, selling a selection of books from which the readings are taken.

GUEST SPEAKER: Dr. Helen Heineman, President Emerita, Framingham State University
Creating a good opening scene is an important launching operation on the part of a novelist. Dickens was a master at it, and this talk will look at how he created unforgettable ‘‘openers’’ in several of his 15 novels. We’ll look at his most famous–and best–in Bleak House as well as openers in Dombey and Son, Great Expectations and Edwin Drood.
Please Note: This lecture will be at the McAuliffe Branch Library.

What was the political and foreign policy significance of the Apollo program, and what is its enduring legacy? We often remember Project Apollo as a feat of science and engineering but from the very start it was part of a broader geopolitical strategy to build alliances, win “hearts and minds,” and secure superpower status in the Cold War. This presentation traces the politics of Project Apollo, from President John F. Kennedy’s call in 1961 to win the battle “between freedom and tyranny” with lunar exploration, to President Richard Nixon’s “Moonglow” diplomatic tour of southeast Asia in 1969, and considers how Apollo-era space diplomacy should inform space policy today.
Join us for this talk by Dr. Teasel Muir-Harmony from the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum.
