Worcester Men of Song: Young at Heart
Worcester Cultural Coalition – The Worcester Men of Song is a Chapter of the Barbershop Harmony Society. Our Chapter was founded in 1949 and has been performing throughout the Worcester County area continuously for the past sixty years. The chorus and quartets visit area communities presenting the four-part, close harmony "a Capella" style of singing called barbershop. Barbershop is uniquely American, tracing its roots back to the early 1800's ... most probably originating in barbershops. (Honestly!) The Men of Song chorus travels the "Northeastern District" twice a year competing with other choruses from throughout New England, northern New York and Canadian maritime province area. It has often been said that "the Men of Song open the Worcester area Christmas Season each year with their Annual Show at Mechanics Hall."

Doing Jewish: A Story from Ghana
Yiddish Book Center – Coming this Sunday at the Center: "Doing Jewish: A Story from Ghana" The documentary, directed by Gabrielle Zilkha, is an exploration of the background and day-to-day lives of Jews living in Sefwi Wiawso, a district in Ghana. This film explores the importance of connections—as the Sefwi Jews reach out to others worldwide, and bears witness to their ongoing struggle for acceptance and growth. As she delves deeper into the Sefwi history, Zilkha also explores the wider question of what it means to be Jewish, consulting religious figures from Miami to Montreal as she wraps her head around her new, suddenly less isolated, community.

Soldier's Scoundrel by Cat Sebastian
Annie's Book Stop in Worcester, Massachusetts – "A scoundrel who lives in the shadows Jack Turner grew up in the darkness of London's slums, born into a life of crime and willing to do anything to keep his belly full and his siblings safe. Now he uses the tricks and schemes of the underworld to help those who need the kind of assistance only a scoundrel can provide. His distrust of the nobility runs deep and his services do not extend to the gorgeous high-born soldier who personifies everything Jack will never be. A soldier untarnished by vice After the chaos of war, Oliver Rivington craves the safe predictability of a gentleman's life-one that doesn't include sparring with a ne'er-do-well who flouts the law at every turn. But Jack tempts Oliver like no other man has before. Soon his yearning for the unapologetic criminal is only matched by Jack's pleasure in watching his genteel polish crumble every time they're together. Two men only meant for each other"
