Brookline Senior Center’s Offerings this March
The Brookline Senior Center will host William P. O’Donnell, the Norfolk County Register of Deeds, on Monday, March 11 at 1:30 PM. O’Donnell will discuss the Registry’s history and historic nature, as well as his continuing efforts to modernize and computerize the large number of real estate records of Norfolk County. He will also discuss the Massachusetts Homestead Act and hold a Q&A with audience members on the subject.
Later in March, the Putterham Book Discussion Group is back! Starting Monday, March, 18, this popular group will return to its usual time from 2:00 to 3:00 PM at the Putterham Branch Public Library. Led by Jean Kramer and Charlotte Millman, this month’s read is Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel. Set in 1520s England, this novel is a fascinating study of the individual psychology of politics whose story remains relevant to this day. Brookline Senior Center welcomes all to this monthly event.
Also offered is a discussion group on nonfiction books, held at the Brookline Senior Center on one Tuesday of every month from 9:00 to 10:00 AM. Their discussions include topics relating to history, public issues, current events, and other nonfiction topics. On March 19, the group will be discussing The Baby Business: How Money, Science, and Politics Drive the Commerce of Conception by Debora L. Spar. Coolidge Corner Library will have copies of the book available several weeks in advance of the meeting.
Other highlights at the Brookline Senior Center this month include a St. Patrick’s Day concert, a visit from “Creature Teacher” Richard Roth and his animal friends, and so much more!
