Join other adults for Andover's thirteenth Death Cafe - an evening of open, lively, and insightful discussion about death. While not a support group nor a venue for bereavement, a Death Cafe seeks to provide an unscripted, non-judgmental platform for those wishing to explore the many facets of this often taboo subject. Come with an open mind, a healthy curiosity, and a willingness to share your thoughts, feelings, and questions with other like-minded individuals.
Hosted by Andover resident, Richard Davis. Seating is limited - please pre-register online. Contact Stefani Traina at email@example.com or 978-623-8451 for further information and/or visit www.deathcafe.com.

This seminar covers the fresh water species that you can target from terra firma using surfcasting knowledge and techniques. When you are waiting for the tide to turn, why not fish the nearby pond, lake, or river? The strikes by freshwater fish can be absolutely explosive! You will learn species specific techniques and spots that will catch you more fish.

Harvest of Empire is a powerful documentary, based on the book by Juan González, that exposes the direct connection between the long history of U.S. intervention in Latin America and the immigration crisis we face today. From the wars for territorial expansion that gave the U.S. control of Puerto Rico, Cuba and more than half of Mexico, to the covert operations that imposed oppressive military regimes in the Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Nicaragua and El Salvador, the film unveils a moving human story that is largely unknown to the great majority of citizens in the U.S. “We are all Americans of the New World, and our most dangerous enemies are not each other, but the great wall of ignorance between us.” – Juan González, Harvest of Empire. A facilitated discussion will follow the screening, led by Dr. Robert Forrant, Professor of History at UMass Lowell. Sponsored by Courageous Conversations & Memorial Hall Library.
