Recap – Author Talk Jessica Shattuck December 5th 7:30 pm

The WLC was host on a rainy Tuesday night to forty two ardent fans of Jessica Shattuck, author of “The Women in the Castle.” This was one of our best turnouts in years. She was warm and eager to tell us about her personal connection to this absorbing tale of German women who resisted Nazism during and right after WW2. The audience was a collection of people who had never been to the WLC, volunteers, and various book groups. A rich literary evening at the WLC.

Recap- Volunteer Party 8th year!

Tuesday night, September 19th,  the WLC played host to its Volunteers, there to celebrate eight years of service to the Newton community.

Twenty three of us arrived to clink glasses with our fellow shift mates. Wonderful refreshments kept us all entertained till past our “quitting time.”

Eight years have passed by very fast, with all of us putting in our weekly shift with nary a pause.

Onwards!
