Jazz, Photojournalism, Women Artists & More

They say “April showers bring May flowers,” but we’re not letting the idea of rain get us down this month. Let us entertain you at Waterstone at Wellesley, rain or shine!

We’ll feature two jazz performances this month. Married duo Anne and Jeff Barnhart of the band Ivory and Gold will wow you with rich melodies and music from the American songbook on April 8. On April 29, jazz singer Geoffrey Hicks will entertain on the piano, bringing his experience as a composer, conductor and lecturer to his captivating performance.

If you’re passionate about supporting local businesses, don’t miss Lorna Ruby of Wellesley Books presenting on the latest bestsellers on April 10. Feel free to join in the discussion or copy down a few titles for future reads.

In April and May, Waterstone at Wellesley will host Izzi Abrams of Swampscott Public Library for her four-part lecture series, “The Feminine Palette.” The lectures will focus on the lives and work of Mary Cassatt and Georgia O’Keeffe, two influential modernist painters whose work focused on femininity. The two artists helped pave the way for women in a male-dominated art world. Celebrate your own femininity or support the strong women in your life as you soak in a unique blend of art and history. The first two lectures will be held April 19 and 26.

If you think you know Boston, think again! Photojournalist Michal Perry will visit us on April 25 to show you a side of the city you’ve never seen. You’ll be leaving with new perspectives and a desire to explore the city with eyes wide open.
