Industrial wealth is seen today in the mill buildings and also in the estate and civic architecture of Methuen's millionaires. The granite walls and turrets that extend through central Methuen are outstanding features and monuments to the millionaire benefactors as well as to the immigrant laborers who erected them 100 years ago.

Spring Series: Africa -- Colonialism & BeyondThe history of Africa has been overshadowed over the last 200 years by the European colonization that dominated all parts of the continent.

The narrative focuses on the wartime relationships between blacks and whites through a child's watchful eyes.

Do-It-Yourself Self-Publishing

Recent changes in the publishing industry have made self-publishing a viable way to publish a book and build a writing career. Local authors Ariele Sieling and Christopher Kellen, both self-published, take a closer look at strategies for creating and selling a book that is both a quality product and affordable for the writer. They discuss the right--and the wrong--reasons for choosing to self-publish, tips for preparing a book for publication, how to avoid common pitfalls, and the variety of ways to connect with readers. Designed for writers, readers, and people who would like to do things themselves, this event will approach strategies for navigating through the new world of publishing while creating a quality and affordable product.

Thursday Evening Book Discussions
Fall Series: Survival StoriesThe human capacity for survival is amazing. Much literature is devoted to survival storiesmen, women and even children beating the odds to make it through impossible situations against improbable odds. Sometimes people act with nobility, sometimes they do not. This fall we explore several tales of survival, both fiction and non-fiction.

Tonight's selection: One Amazing Thing by Chitra Banerjee Divakaruni
In an unnamed U.S. city a small, diverse group of people becomes trapped in the Indian Consulate by an earthquake. To survive and quell the panic, they begin to tell stories of one amazing thing in their lives that they have kept secret. The power of stories to save us and transform our lives is the theme here.
