Dinner and a Movie - The Jungle Book (2016)
Townsend Public Library, Wednesday, September 28 at 7:30pm
Dinner and a Movie
Bring your dinner and watch the new version of The Jungle Book!

In this reimagining of the classic collection of stories by Rudyard Kipling, director Jon Favreau uses visually stunning CGI to create the community of animals surrounding Mowgli (Neel Sethi), a human boy adopted by a pack of wolves. The appearance of a villainous tiger named Shere Khan (voiced by Idris Elba) forces Mowgli's guardian, the panther Bagheera (Ben Kingsley), to shepherd the child to safety in the "man village." Along the way, the boy meets an affable, lazy bear named Baloo (Bill Murray), as well as a snake with hypnotic powers (Scarlett Johansson) and an orangutan (Christopher Walken) who wants to harness the power of fire. Lupita Nyong'o, Giancarlo Esposito,and Garry Shandling also lend their voices to this adventure tale. (added from Eventkeeper)… (more)

AUTHOR TALK:TOM BATOR

The Boston Trustee tells the story of a unique Boston institution – men and women who serve as individual professional trustees and are known universally as “Boston Trustees.” To understand the Boston Trustees is in large part to understand what makes Boston and the Boston Brahmins exceptional.
Tom Bator is a partner in the private trustee office of Nichols & Pratt, LLP and is a member of that Firm’s investment committee and management committee. He is a Fellow of the American College of Trust and Estate Counsel (ACTEC).

Wendy Garling presents "The Stars at Dawn: Forgotten Stories of Women in the Buddha's Life"
The Concord Bookshop, Sunday, October 2 at 3pm
Please join us on Sunday, October 2 at 3pm, when Concord-based author Wenday Garling presents her new book, "Stars at Dawn."

This is a contemporary and provocative examination of the life of the Buddha highlighting the influence of women from his journey to awakening through his teaching career—based on overlooked or neglected stories from ancient source material.

In this retelling of the ancient legends of the women in the Buddha’s intimate circle, lesser-known stories from Sanskrit and Pali sources are for the first time woven into an illuminating, coherent narrative that follows his life from his birth to his parinirvana or death. Interspersed with original insights, fresh interpretations, and bold challenges to the status quo, the stories are both entertaining and thought-provoking—some may even appear controversial. Focusing first on laywomen from the time before the Buddha’s enlightenment—his birth mother and stepmother, his co-wives, and members of his harem when he was known as Prince Siddhartha—then moving on to the Buddha’s first female disciples, early nuns, and to female patrons, Wendy Garling invites us to open our minds to a new understanding of their roles.
