Art Lessons: Learning From Our Creative Experiences - March 16th from 7:00-8:30 PM
Join Susan Kapuscinski Gaylord for a talk about art and creativity. Susan believes that everyone is creative and that exercising our creativity makes us happer and more fully human. In this illustrated talk she shares her 35 year history in the arts (calligraphy, book-making, digital compositions) and the hard-won truths she has learned: the importance of patience, the development of the critical eye, making peace with the desire for perfection, and the idea that an artist's best teacher is the work itself. Her goal is to put the audience in touch with their own creative experiences whether they be art, crafts, music, writing, cooking, gardening, fashion, or home decorating. Click here to register

An Evening with Neil Swidey - Author of Trapped Under the Sea March 26th from 7:00-8:30PM
Dracut's Parker Library and the Nevins Library are jointly pleased to announce that Neil Swidey, Boston Globe reporter and author of Trapped Under the Sea, One Engineering Marvel, Five Men and a Disaster Ten Miles into the Darkness, will be speaking here in Methuen in the Great Hall. Neil's book is a gripping account of the men, the sandhogs, who were hired to finish the project that no others would take. They were the final workers in the Deer Island sewage outfall pipe project, the major operation to clean up Boston Harbor. Neil looks at all the intertwining aspects from egos to politics that were in play during this deadly operation. This book has won many major awards and we are so happy to bring this engaging author to our library. Books will be available to purchase and Neil will be happy to autograph them at the end of his presentation.
