We Sponsor Museum Passes

The Friends sponsor passes to area museums and attractions.

We Fund Visits by National and Regional Authors 

One of the most popular authors, who returns periodically, is Ted Reinstein, WCVB's Chronicle reporter. His last visit, in November 2016, was to talk about his latest book, Wicked Pissed.  It contains fascinating stories, some known, others not so much, from the history of New England, and brings to life many of the fights, spats, and arguments that have, in many ways, shaped the area.  Reinstein's work demonstrates what it really means to be Wicked Pissed.  

He returns on October 4, 2018 at 7:00pm to talk about his new book about New England General Stores.
