Five Things You Need to Know Today: June 21
Another hot day, so spend it in New Orleans, or experiencing golden silents, or exploring "Beautiful Ruins."
1. The National Weather Service is predicting a hot day--they have even pulled out a "hot" graphic for the occasion. Should be sunny and hot all day, and mostly clear in the evening. Highs of 101ºF, lows of 74ºF in the evening, and the Heat Alert is still in effect.
2. Head over to the Brookline Adult and Community Education building on Tappan Street and spend A Night in New Orleans. At 6 p.m. tonight, you can experience a blend of Cajun and Creole dishes, and learn how to make some of the dishes. The course will run you $64.
3. For 93 years, the Boston League of Women Voters has been meeting, and they're meeting up again at 6:30 p.m. tonight. Carol Hardy-Fanta, Director of the Women in Politics Program at UMass Boston, will talk about "Social Media in Political Campaigns" at the LWVBoston Annual Meeting. At the First Baptist Church in JP (633 Centre St, Jamaica Plain). Please RSVP to Jude Hutchinson at firstname.lastname@example.org or 617.983.5614.
4. Silents Are Golden. With the success of some of the recent films about the history of the moving picture, like "Hugo" and "The Artist," the Brookline High School wants to show a few classics tonight. Show starts at 7 p.m., and tickets are $6.
5. Watch a fifty-year love affair unfold from the coasts of Italy to the streets of Hollywood in Jess Walter's novel "Beautiful Ruins," and if you want to know more about how the book came to be, then head to Brookline Booksmith at 7 p.m. tonight.
