As a part of The Big Read, the Massillon Public Library invites the public to learn and discuss “What Wise Women Know” as presenter Gloria Miller hosts a Zoom meeting for 45 minutes on each of the following three Thursdays – July 23, July 30, and August 6 – at 11:00 a.m. Getting older doesn’t guarantee we’ll grow wiser; it takes a conscious effort. Miller, a former local educator and presenter at the Chautauqua Institution, will lead this interactive seminar and help participants to learn the qualities women “of a certain age” — or anyone — can nurture to become “Wise Women.”
The Big Read is a community reading program focused on a single book. This National Endowment for the Arts initiative, in partnership with Arts Midwest, supports community reading programs across the country. Massillon Museum and its amazing community partners, including the Massillon Public Library, create
innovative and critical programs highlighting the book themes, and exposing participants to new genres and ideas. The selected book is offered to the community for free so that many can participate. This year’s book selection is Can’t We Talk About Something More Pleasant? by Roz Chast.
