Noted Journalist and Author to Speak on Nelson Mandela

Award-winning journalist and author Charlene Smith will speak on her friendship with South African leader Nelson Mandela and share sections from her two books Mandela, In Celebration of a Great Life (published in 1999 and re-released this year) and Mandela and America published last month. In 1991 when Mandela was released after 27 years in jail, Smith, who was then a prominent political journalist in South Africa, helped find accommodation for his second night of freedom. She was also the only journalist to interview him four times in his first week of freedom. Mandela also worked directly with her on her new book. Smith is recognized as an authority on southern African politics and on Mandela. She also has significant expertise in HIV and AIDS, reporting on violent conflict, and counseling those who have experienced violent trauma. Smith has authored 14 books.

Curator of Boston Sports Museum to Speak on His Book About the History of Fenway Park

Location: Spellman Museum

Although the Red Sox are not in the playoffs this year, come and help end the season on a positive note by learning more about the great history of Boston's one hundred year-old park. Richard Johnson, author and Curator of the Boston Sports Museum, will talk about his book and all the great sports events that have happened at Fenway. See how much your really know about the park. His book, Field of our Fathers, An Illustrated History of Fenway Park, is considered the definitive illustrated history of the Park and includes not only great photographs but images of many nostalgic items. This comprehensive volume includes first-hand accounts of the many baseball and non-baseball events that have characterized the park since the days of Tris Speaker and Babe Ruth. Johnson captures the essence of a beloved ball yard, which has been, and will continue to be, both a defacto community center and a witness to a wide variety of unforgettable sporting and non-sporting events.
