For ages 55+ -- ON ZOOM -- Great American Writers: Eugene O’Neill, Presented by Dr. Larry Lowenthal -- Eugene Gladstone O'Neill is considered by many to be the greatest of all American playwrights. O'Neill's plays often involve characters on the fringes of society who struggle to maintain their hopes and dreams, but ultimately slide into disillusion and despair. Yet O'Neill's plays are redeemed from pessimism by the beauty of his writing and the compassion which he displays in all of his dramatic situations. Winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature, O' Neill's tragedy, Long Day's Journey Into Night, is often cited as the finest play in English in the 20th century. Presenter Larry Lowenthal received an M.A. in English Literature from Northwestern and Ph.D. in Drama from NYU. During his career, he taught at colleges and universities in the U.S. and Israel.

Tho’ awful wails of ghosts give fright,
And fearful beasts infest the night,
Don’t be afraid of the storyteller’s power.
Come to the library at the appointed hour
Bring your own S’mores Stick.
September’s guest storyteller is Susan Petroni of the Framingham Source.
Featuring Brett Peruzzi & Steven Weisman
From abandoned railroad lines to the noisy overpasses of Mass Turnpike, Saxonville has more than its fair share of bridges. Multiple road and highway bridges, footbridges, and historic pathways – now abandoned – have served to bridge residents of this Framingham village for centuries. Join Framingham residents Brett Peruzzi and Steven Weisman for a look at all of the bridges, old and new, in and around the historic village of Saxonville.
