You are invited to a virtual book club!  We are reading, Sudden Sea: The Great Hurricane of 1938 by R. A. Scotti. 

You can borrow the e-book or audiobook from Boston Public Library.  You can also purchase the book at the Bookshop.org, Amazon, or Kindle.

Description

The massive destruction wreaked by the Hurricane of 1938 dwarfed that of the Chicago Fire, the San Francisco Earthquake, and the Mississippi floods of 1927, making the storm the worst natural disaster in U.S. history. Now, R.A. Scotti tells the story.

Thanks to Nolan Whitehead of Newton for the great photo, above!

Introducing… Meditation in Motion
Aug 13 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
Introducing… Meditation in Motion

Tired of being cooped up?  Want to learn something new?  Then join us to experience Qigong (Qi pronounced ‘chee’ – like ‘Chee-tos’), a part of the traditional Chinese medicine that dates back over 3,000 years, and combines breathing, movement and meditation.  In this 40-minute session, you’ll learn to integrate physical postures, breathing techniques, meditation and focused intentions.  The session will be led by Paula Reardon-Webster, a Certified Evidence-Based Instructor from the Center for Taiji Studies.  Paula says that when you practice Qigong correctly, you will experience gains in health, strength and energy.  Certainly worth a try!  Register for the Zoom link below.
