NEWS AND ANNOUNCEMENTS


Wellesley Reads Together 2015
The Hanging Judge by Michael Ponsor has been chosen for this fall's community reading program. 
The book is the recipient of the 2015 Massachusetts Bay One Book Award. It is a work of fiction, based on an actual death penalty case in Springfield, Massachusetts over which the author presided as a federal judge.  Anita Shreve praised The Hanging Judge as "that rare gem: a crackling court procedural with authentic characters and beautiful prose."

Wellesley Free Library and MassBay Community College have joined forces to engage the entire Wellesley community in discussion about one book. Michael Ponsor will visit both the MassBay campus and the Wellesley Free Library in October. Related programs and book discussions are also being planned for the fall.
Read The Hanging Judge this summer!

JULY EXHIBITS

WAKELIN ROOM AND LOBBY  - July 11th
Influences: the Recent Artwork of Janet Schwartz and Dave Kaphammer
 
Dave and Janet have been painting and drawing together since 2013.  Dave is an accomplished and focused pastel painter with a wonderful mastery of color that results in striking landscapes.  Janet is a fearless and energetic artist with a wide range of subjects and mediums and a tendency towards bold expression.  Both are enchanted by light, shadow and reflection.This show hints at how their very different styles and approaches have influenced each other’s work and how they have helped each other push their individual boundaries.
 
Artists’ Reception:  July 18, 3- 5pm in the Wakelin Room
