Cancelled Thursday Theater: Little Women

Writer-director Greta Gerwig has crafted a film that draws on both the classic novel and the writings of Louisa May Alcott and unfolds as the author’s alter ego, Jo March reflects back and forth on her fictional life. In Gerwig’s take, the beloved story of the March sisters, four young women each determined to live life on her own terms, is both timeless and timely. (PG - 135 minutes)

Summer Reading Program Squam Lakes Science Center: Stories on the Wild Side

Reading and science come together in this fun program blending storytelling with up close encounters with three live, native, New Hampshire wild animals. Animal characters in stories are often very different from real animals, but we can still learn important truths about animals through stories. A naturalist will read aloud short stories featuring animals and the natural world, and then introduce one or two of the story’s wild characters. Visits with live animals featured in the tales will challenge kids to separate fact from fiction.

Registration opens June 26
