      6PM - Reception | 7PM - Public Program Join Maria McCauley, Director of Libraries, and the Cambridge Public Library Foundation Board of Directors for a special conversation about how voter suppression is impacting democracy and next steps to take with the following luminaries: Carol Anderson, the Charles Howard Candler Professor and Chair of African American Studies at Emory University. She is the New York Times bestselling, award-winning author of One Person, No Vote, White Rage, Bourgeois Radicals and Eyes off the Prize; Lawrence Lessig, the Roy L. Furman Professor of Law and Leadership at Harvard Law School. His current work addresses “institutional corruption”—relationships which, while legal, weaken public trust in an institution—especially as that affects democracy. His books include: They Don’t Represent Us (forthcoming in 2019) and Fidelity & Constraint: How the Supreme Court Has Read the American Constitution (2019); and Rachael V. Cobb, Chair and Associate Professor of Political Science & Legal Studies at Suffolk University, who will moderate the conversation. She specializes in U.S. elections, election administration and political participation, and serves on the board of MassVOTE and the Boston Election Advisory Committee. Register here

    • Great Books

      Main Library, Curious George Room, 449 Broadway, Cambridge, MA 02138

      October 29th Read: William Trevor, selected stories Reading Interests: We read primarily from anthologies that emphasize ancient and modern classics of literature, drama, philosophy, and social thought. In recent years the group has read selections from The Book of Job, Aeschylus, Plato, Montaigne, Donne, William James, Cady Stanton, Baldwin, and Borges. These may run anywhere from 20 to 100 pages. Additional books, chosen by the group, tend to be more contemporary. Those read in the last three years include Adiga's Between the Assassinations, Welty's The Golden Apples, Camus's The Plague, Woolf’s To the Lighthouse, DuBois's The Souls of Black Folk, and Garcia Marquez’s One Hundred Years of Solitude. A Shakespeare play is read every year. Requirements: There are only two: read the scheduled work and participate in the discussion. These requirements are waived for those attending their first meeting. Preregistration is not required but is encouraged, since the library will provide, in advance and at no charge, a copy of the reading for anyone planning to attend. For more information, contact Drew Griffin (857-235-9829; dgriffin@cambridgema.gov)
