Medford Public Library Lectures- Not To Be Missed | Centers And Squares

Welcome to Centers and Squares

As a Cambridge real estate agent, the city squares of Cambridge, Somerville and Medford and the town centers of Arlington, Watertown and Belmont, Massachusetts are my home turf. And as a lifelong New Englander who’s lived within twenty miles of Boston most of my life, I can introduce you to other nearby towns as we search for your new home. If you’re planning to sell your home in Cambridge, MA or nearby you’ll find plenty of info about the home selling process here too. Questions? Send me an email or call me at 617-504-1737.

Medford Public Library Lectures- Not To Be Missed

Medford Public Library Lectures   I love attending lectures and with the many colleges in Cambridge, Boston, and nearby there tend to be a lot of them to choose from. With the students away for the summer the schedule thins out however.  The Medford MA Public Library Lecture Series is one of the best around and it’s still going strong in the summer months.  Here are some of the upcoming offerings:

The Charles River and Boston Skyline from the BU Bridge in Cambridgeport

Exploring the Hidden Charles – Michael Tougias

The Charles River is an integral part of the landscape in many towns and cities in Eastern Massachusetts.  Learn more about the Charles River with Michael Tougias, author of Exploring the Hidden Charles.

Michael Tougias will speak at the Medford Public Library on Wednesday, July 29, 2009 at 7:30 pm

The Boston Harbor Islands – Christopher Klein

I’m looking forward to learning more about the Boston Harbor Islands at Christopher Klein’s lecture.  Klein is the author of Discovering the Boston Harbor Islands: A Guide to the City’s Hidden Shores.

Christopher Klein’s presentation at the Medford Public Library is scheduled for Tuesday, August 4, 2009 at 7:00 pm

Baked Beans and Fried Clams: How Food Defines a Region – Lecture by Edie Clark

Edie Clark has long been one of my favorite Yankee Magazinecolumnists. The food listed in the lecture description “baked beans, Indian pudding, fried clams, and lobster rolls” sounds like it was pulled from the menu at the Willow Pond Kitchen, a local institution where I waitressed through college and graduate school.  I look forward to hearing Edie Clark’s take on what these classic New England dishes say about us.

Edie Clark will speak at the Medford Public Library on August 10, 2009 at 7:00 pm.
