King Philip’s War: The History and Legacy of America’s Forgotten Conflict - on Zoom
Wednesday, October 5th
7:00 p.m.
Michael Tougias, Author

Author Michael Tougias will give a presentation on the war between the colonists and Native Americans in 1675-76. Tougias is the author of Until I Have No Country (a novel of King Philip’s War), and co-author with Eric Schultz of King Philip’s War: The History and Legacy of America’s Forgotten Conflict. The first part of the presentation will discuss the Indian way of life, colonial settlements, and the events leading up to the war. The second part covers the battles and the strategy during this cataclysmic war, which on a per capita basis was the bloodiest conflict in our nation’s history. Slides include battle sites, period sketches, historic markers, maps, and suggestions for visiting roadside history. Tougias also discusses Native strategy during the war and the challenges of writing a historic novel. Tougias is the author of 29 books, including national bestsellers The Finest Hours, A Storm Too Soon, and Rescue of the Bounty. This event is made possible by a generous grant from The Wellesley Hills Junior Women’s Club.

Astrology - on Zoom
Wednesday, October 19th
7:00 p.m.
Jessica D’Angio, Astrologer

In this introductory lecture, we will discuss what astrology is, how it works, and how best to use astrology as a tool for daily living. We will also explore the meanings of the Sun sign and the Moon sign, and how they work together to create your fundamental personality and character. Jessica D’Angio is an astrologer and psychic medium, as well as an attorney. Using astrology as her primary modality, Jessica can see the secrets of your soul’s blueprint: what energy it has mastered, what energy it has struggled with, where it means to go in this lifetime, and how it can find and maintain karmic balance. This event is made possible by a generous grant from The Wellesley Hills Junior Women’s Club.
