Book Club
Thursday, March 12 at 7:30pm

Our book for March, The Hearts Invisible Furies by John Boyne, is a #1 New York Times bestseller. Cyril Avery is not a real Avery — or at least, that’s what his adoptive parents tell him. And he never will be. But if he isn’t a real Avery, then who is he? Born out of wedlock to a teenage girl cast out from her rural Irish community and adopted by a well-to-do if eccentric Dublin couple via the intervention of a hunchbacked Redemptorist nun, Cyril is adrift in the world, anchored only tenuously by his heartfelt friendship with the infinitely more glamourous and dangerous Julian Woodbead. At the mercy of fortune and coincidence, he will spend a lifetime coming to know himself and where he came from – and over his many years, will struggle to discover an identity, a home, a country, and much more.

RSVP to Priya at priyanpatel@yahoo.com before Tuesday, March 10th. Location details sent out the day before. Members are kindly asked to bring a bottle of wine or an appetizer to share.

Community Happenings

“400 Years in 40 Minutes”

Friday, March 20, 7:00 PM, at the Depot

We all know what put Lexington on the map – the famous events of April 19, 1775. But did you know that Lexington had a long and spectacular history both before and after the battle? Inspired by PechaKucha presentations, join us for a whirlwind tour of Lexington’s past, from pre-colonial Native American society, to the present. Along the way, meet some of Lexington’s most intriguing characters throughout the years, and see how the town progressed from a sleepy farming community to the vibrant cultural center it is today. Presented by long-time Historical Society volunteer Marsha Baker, this will be a fun and comprehensive introduction to town history for residents old and new! Will your favorite slice of Lexington history be highlighted? Stop by to see!

Free and open to the public!
Reservations are required.
Please call the office at 781-862-1703 or email programs@lexingtonhistory.org to reserve your seat.
