Illustrating the Middlesex Canal Acclaimed artist Thomas Dahill will present a brief history of the old Canal which ran through Medford, with drawings and watercolors from the two books he illustrated, "The Incredible Ditch" and "Life on the Middlesex Canal". He will also talk about the Middlesex Canal Museum in North Billerica, where he serves as its Resident Artist.
"A poignant collection of lyrics about commitment, memory, and grief, The City of Love chronicales not only the history of a marriage, but also the ways in which men and women learn to care for the most fragile, yet the most enduring realities of human exprience. The book celebrates, with dignity and integrity, those 'small moments' which are 'all a part of living inside agreeable love.' While the poems confront unflinchingly the searing pain of loss, they shape bereavement into 'images that satisfy and bless and encourage.' They are, as Alan Seaburg knows, 'tributes around the heart,' to be offfered, to be shared, to be renewed for all of us."
