Five Things You Need to Know Today: September 23
Another artsy day in Brookline.
- In addition to the regular National Weather Service report for Brookline today, there is a Flood Watch issued for Eastern Norfolk County. There is an 80 percent chance of rain, turning into definite rain in the evening. Highs will be 70ºF, with evening lows of 63ºF.
- Human Rights City Boston is a Forum to Bring Human Rights Home starting at noon today. Its goal is to create a structure for handling human rights concerns, despite the complex and sometimes ingrained issues. The forum takes place at Twelfth Baptist Church, located at 150 Warren St, Roxbury.
- Fans of Musician Al Gould will be pleased to hear that he's performing at EPOCH Senior Healthcare of Chestnut Hill, and perhaps more pleased to go to his 2:30 p.m. show. For those who are less familiar with Gould, he's a 30-year veteran of musical performance, who is gracing EPOCH for a free show. Call Mary Rivera at 617-243-9990 to R.S.V.P.
- Cast your pearls before kine today at the Abeille, demo of Pearl and Leather Necklace. For $10, you can watch the basics of making a pearl and leather masterpiece, and if you want to pick up materials you can make your own today. Get there at 6 p.m. If you're interested in more, they are also hosting their Free Monthly Meetup after the demo (7 p.m.), where you can discuss your ongoing projects and get new inspirations for projects you didn't know you wanted to start.
- Stephen Fry once wrote, "I believe poetry is a primal impulse within all of us." If you are attuned to that instinct, then perhaps your evening will take you to the Brookline Booksmith for A Night of Poetry with Afaa Michael Weaver, Nick Demske, and Rebecca Wolff. 7 p.m., the poets take to the 'Smith to share some of their works and talk more about poetry.
