A Native Transformation
Thursday, June 21, 7pm
Katie Banks Hone, aka the Monarch Gardener, a former Senior Aquarist and Educator at the New England Aquarium, shares the story of transforming a typical suburban property with non-native foundation plantings into a haven for wildlife with over 80 species of native plants and multiple rain gardens. Go home with planting lists and resources, sample garden designs, and packets of common milkweed seeds to start your own transformation. Join us on Thursday, June 21 at 7pm. Bring your questions!

Book Club – ongoing
1st Thursday of the month, 6:30 to 8 pm
The Rowley Book Club will be reading A House Without Windows by Nadia Hashimi on Thursday, June 7. Zeba, an Afghani woman accused of the brutal murder of her husband of 20 years, is in jail while awaiting trial. While there she bonds with the other women imprisoned because of the social rules they have broken. Is that why Zeba is there, or is there more to her story? Yusuf, her Afghan-born, American-raised lawyer, must discover the truth in this moving look at the lives of modern Afghan women. Pick up a book at the Rowley Library or order your own copy here, then join us for a discussion on Thursday, June 7 at 6:30 p.m. This is our last meeting of the season, so watch our web site for the announcement of next year’s titles. Our first meeting next fall will be Thursday, September 6. For more information on our book club and a list of future titles, click here.
