First, a Virtual Lyceum
This summer we asked for all to do a “Virtual Lyceum” of favorite books for the summer. Instead of having a Lyceum on this topic, we’re having a virtual Lyceum. Send me (ginnypacker@gmail.com) the book title, author, and a short (30 words or less) recommendation, and we’ll post them on the Anno list and in the November Parishioner. Let’s make this work!
 
And now for the upcoming schedule…
 
September 28Alan MacRobert (NOTE special time: after church 12:30 p.m. - 2:00 p.m.)
A Question & Answer session on all things astronomical with the Senior Editor of Sky and Telescope magazine. Alan’s popular presentation last spring sparked so many conversations and questions that the Lyceum Committee felt we should schedule him as our first event. In his job Alan covers all aspects of astronomy and cosmology for the public, so bring your questions and hear his thoughtful answers. (The later time allows many of us, including families and choir members, to participate.)
 
October 5 from 9:30am - 10:50 a.m.: Treasures of First Parish…..Continued with Doris Smith and Maria Green. You may already have explored the Gallery@First Parish exhibit, which opens on September 21, by the time this Lyceum comes around, but…there are many more unusual pieces which have been stored (even hidden) throughout the church. Not all the treasures could be “displayed or hung” for the gallery show. Some are too big, too heavy, very odd, or just plain awkward. Doris and Maria will share them with us and tell their stories.
