ADULT PROGRAMS

  • Armchair Travel to Ethiopia. Ethiopia is an intriguing mix of ancient and modern, and a land of many superlatives. It has been named the most welcoming country for tourists.  It is also the home of humankind’s ancestors, the land where coffee originated, and the source of the Nile River.  Wayland native John Leupold leads tours to Ethiopia regularly.  He’ll share his perceptions of this fascinating country on Saturday, February 2 at 3 p.m.
  • Cooking with Chocolate, Sweet and Savory. Chocolate is not just dessert; it’s everything you need! Join chef Liz Barbour and learn about the different types of chocolate, how to select a chocolate based on its fat and sugar content, and how to use chocolate as the main ingredient in recipes that are not just for dessert.  Enjoy a cooking demonstration of two delicious recipes, and samples.  Registration is required.  Monday, February 4 at 7 p.m.
  • TED Walks! A Discussion and Walking Group. One Friday a month, we’ll watch a 20-minute TED talk, discuss it for 20 minutes indoors, then—weather permitting–take a 30-minute walk to continue the discussion.  Come for any part of the program.

  • Photographer Bob Michelson: Coyote Continent. Coyotes are the new top predator in the Northeast.  They were unknown east of the Mississippi River until after 1900.  As they migrated north and east up into Canada, they interbred with wolves to the extent that the coyotes we see in our backyards more closely resemble large German Shepherds.  Learn about their eastward expansion and hybridization on Wednesday, February 13 at 7 p.m.
