Summer Walking Tours with Dee Morris

Some Exceedingly Capable People of Medford Hillside :

Saturdays, July 18, August 8, September 12 at 10:00 a.m. 

Meet at Wesley United Methodist Church 100 Winthrop Street

“Do you want a home of your own?” was the rallying cry of Leavitt & Woodworth,

two premier real estate agents from Medford Hillside in the early 1900s.

Living in the Chester or Greenleaf Avenue area offered the commuter about 48 street cars or trains to and from Boston. The comfortable homes built on the fine dry soil provided a healthy environment in which to raise a family.  Near to Tufts College, this socially-minded neighborhood loved entertaining by presenting amateur theatricals put on by the “None-Such Comedy Club.” Yet in 1903 the peace was shattered when one of the local girls was shot while walking up her front stairs.  There are many untold stories in this ideal community.

Presented by the Friends of the Medford Public Library.   No registration is necessary for these tours.

Little do they know, Lunch Lady doesn’t just serve sloppy joes—she serves justice! Whatever danger lies ahead, it’s

no match for LUNCH LADY!

Swing by the Children’s Room to pick up a copy of the book before book club meets!   NO Registration Required.

In the summer of 1968, after travelling from Brooklyn to Oakland, California, to spend a month with the mother they barely know, eleven-year-old Delphine and her two younger sisters arrive to a cold welcome as they discover that their mother, a dedicated poet and printer, is resentful of the intrusion of their visit and their summer is set to be crazier than they could ever imagine.

Bring your favorite snack to share and talk about this month’s great read! If you come to the children’s room, we can make sure you have a copy of the book to read in advance of our club meeting.

Edward Clark is a longtime residentof Medford. 

His three volume autobiography was published in 2014 and 2015 by Montpelier Press.

The Grand Lodge of Massachusetts, Order Sons of Italy in America was chartered in 1914 and is one of the oldest lodges in the United States.

An educator at the Urban College of Boston, he often lectures on the impact of immigrant groups in Boston in the 19th and 20th centuries and their contributions to the thriving nexus of cultures that led to such groups as the Sons of Italy.

Strange things are happening in Village Drowning, and a terrifying encounter has Rye O'Chanter convinced that the monstrous, supposedly extinct Bog Noblins have returned.
Now Rye's only hope is an exiled secret society so notorious its name can't be spoken aloud: the Luck Uglies. As Rye dives into Village Drowning's maze of secrets, rules, and lies, she'll discover the truth behind the village's legends of outlaws and beasts...and that it may take a villain to save them from the monsters.

 

Bring your favorite snack to share and talk about this month’s great read!

If you come to the children’s room, we can make sure you have a copy of the book to read in advance of our club meeting.
