Wednesday, June 27, 7:30 pm – Encouraging Healthy Bird Population In Massachusetts

Birds are not only winged harbingers of spring, they are harbingers of healthy ecosystems. 2018 is the ‘Year of the Bird’ and new research exposes the critical role that farmland and other diverse habitats provide for birdlife. In New England, birds associated with grass- and shrublands represent some of the most treasured wildlife in Massachusetts, but they are also some of the most imperiled and rapidly declining bird groups. Most of these birds depend significantly on privately-owned lands, agricultural landscapes, and the efforts of individual landowners in order to survive.

The number of books about LGBTQ+ teens has grown quickly over the last ten years, but there are relatively few books about LGBTQ+ kids and tweens.

Through April, 2019 – Alicja Kwade: TunnelTeller

Berlin-based contemporary artist Alicja Kwade (b.1979, Poland) has long been engaged with value systems, philosophical questions about the essence of reality, and with attempting to examine, if not resolve, issues of inherently subjective concepts such as space and time. In her sculptures, as well as installations, photographs, and films, Kwade occupies herself with the structural properties of everyday objects and questioning the veracity of matter, revealing possibilities for alternate realities, while examining social agreements and supposed truths.

Thursday, June 14, 5:30 pm – 7:30 pm – United Tastes: The Making of the First American Cookbook

American Cookery (1796) by Amelia Simmons is known as the “first American cookbook”and has attracted an enthusiastic modern audience of historians, food journalists, and general readers.

They will discuss the book at the Massachusetts Historical Society, 1154 Boylston Street in Boston, on Thursday, June 14, beginning with a pre-talk reception at 5:30 and lecture at 6:00. $10 per person (no charge for Massachusetts Historical Society members).
