Afternoon with the Author
Saturday, Nov. 16, 3 p.m.-- Hingham resident and author Amy Whorf McGuiggan will talk about her new book, "Finding Emma: My Search for the Family My Grandfather Never Knew" and the discoveries she made about her maternal grandfather’s family and ancestry.
Family members had always been told and willingly believed that John Joseph Osborne had grown up an orphan and an only child. Six years of painstaking research uncovered a different truth.
During the event McGuiggan will ponder the question of whether learning and knowing something that was previously unknown -– and that one has gone through life blissfully unaware of –- matters. Those who are researching their own family tree are encouraged to attend and to share their personal journey. Copies of "Finding Emma" will be available for purchase.
Evening with the Author
Tuesday, Nov. 19, 7 p.m. Motivational speaker/author/organizing coach Lisa Dooley, who wrote "More Space, More Time, More Joy! Organizing Your Best Life," will start her talk with the key understanding that organization is a means to an end as opposed to the end itself. In her debut book she guides individuals, households, and companies through a process of internal change that will help them find more space, more time, and more joy in their lives. Books will be available for purchase and signing.
Saturday, Nov. 23, 2:30 p.m. Artists of all skill levels are invited to join in an evening of open-ended creativity and to bring any in-progress work to continue, get some feedback on a current project, or start something new.
A variety of materials -- including paint, yarn, air dry clay, paper projects, and more -- will be provided. Materials from previous Make Workshops will also be available for the following projects: mason jar painting, felt flower wreath, book page wreath, postcard journal, and due-date frames. No registration necessary.
