Book Club—The Bostonians by Henry James
Saturday, October 26
11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
Join us for a lively discussion of Henry James’s brilliant satire about Boston society and the women’s rights movement in America. The Bostonians is one of James’s most provocative and astute portrayals of a world caught between old values and the lure of progress.
Paul Revere Program
Sunday, October 27
11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
Paul Revere comes alive in an innovative and entertaining educational program. David Conner, star of A&E’s Biography on Paul Revere, portrays the famous patriot in this fascinating program that includes tales of a teenage bell-ringer for the Old North Church and the drama of the Revolutionary War years. Conner brings to life the famous figure while unraveling the historically incorrect Paul Revere.
