Natick

Library hosts Natick Reads talk Sunday

Continue reading below

The Board of Selectmen has declared March as “Natick Reads Month,” supporting a local effort to encourage reading, promote literacy, and build community. For this year’s Natick Reads program, the town’s libraries have set a theme of enjoying the outdoors, and are encouraging residents to read “A Walk in the Woods” by Bill Bryson, a humorous story about his adventures on the Appalachian Trail, according to library officials. Both the Morse Institute and Bacon Free libraries will hold programs throughout the month geared toward appreciating nature and the outdoors. On Sunday at 3 p.m. at the Morse Institute Library, author Larry Anderson  is delivering a slide presentation about the history of the Appalachian Trail, and will outline the biography of Benton MacKaye, a New England-based forester and conservationist who is credited with introducing the idea of hiking trails. On Monday at 7 p.m., Morse Institute will host a program led by author Clare Walker Leslie and Joy Marzolf, who works at the Massachusetts Audubon Society’s Broadmoor Wildlife Sanctuary  in South Natick, on the importance of hiking, how to do it safely, and ways to engage children in nature. For more information on Natick Reads events, contact the Morse Institute Library at 508-647-6520 or the Bacon Free Library  at 508-653-6730.
