RESCHEDULED FROM JANUARY 28.

Gulliver’s Travels

Resist the Winter Blues, travel to far off places and get some “perspective” when you join us for two evenings to read Jonathan Swift’s classic, Gulliver’s Travels. From 7:00-8:00 PM, On Wednesdays ,January 28 - Parts I & II & February 11 - Parts III & IV

Written in 1726, this satire on human nature might not be what you expect if you are only familiar with the abridged children’s versions. This is a parody of travel books that were common in the eighteenth century. We will discuss how Swift tries to force perspective (both big and little), in order to give his readers a critical point of view of English society and customs.   

Led by Kyna Hamill, PhD, who teaches in the Core Curriculum at Boston University. 

Please register for this group at the Information Desk.  Books and study questions will be available the last week in December. This group is sponsored by the Friends of the Medford Public Library.

Freedom Riders: A Documentary Screening and Discussion

Hosted by David Fedo 

Tuesday, February 24 at 7:00 p.m. at the Library

Freedom Riders is the powerful, harrowing, and ultimately inspirational story of six months in 1961 that changed America forever. From May until November 1961, more than 400 black and white Americans risked their lives—and many endured savage beatings and imprisonment—for simply traveling together on buses and trains as they journeyed through the Deep South. Deliberately violating Jim Crow laws, the Freedom Riders met with bitter racism and mob violence along the way, sorely testing their belief in nonviolent activism.

The discussion will be led by David Fedo.  A longtime resident (with his wife Susan) of Medford, David has recently retired from a career at Curry College and Wheelock College.  David has facilitated numerous book discussion groups sponsored by the Massachusetts Foundation for the Humanities and is the leader of  the Library’s Local Author Book Group.

This film is the final documentary from the Medford Public Library's Created Equal grant, funded by the National Foundation for the Humanities and The Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History.
