First Look Staged Reading: The Housekeeper

Central Library First Look staged readings are the initial step of the Fresh Ink Theatre’s development process. These public, script-in-hand readings of the plays give each playwright the opportunity to hear their text aloud and with an audience, often for the very first time. A moderated conversation with the audience follows each reading, which provides the writer with crucial feedback as they look toward the next draft of their script, and offers the audience a chance to participate first-hand in a crucial part of the development process. Fresh Ink will be presenting three staged readings at the BPL on May 21, May 26, and June 2. About the play “The Housekeeper,” written by Ginger Lazarus: When Adelina takes a job as a housekeeper for widower Charlie Frey and his daughter Kaila, she is not surprised to meet Charlie’s dead wife, Carson.

Finding Living Ancestors: Being a Genealogy Gumshoe

Central Library When uncovering genealogy, most often researchers are looking for ancestors. Sometimes, however, it is necessary to find a living relative in order to track down records, get a DNA sample to solve a family mystery, or return a rare photo or family Bible to a descendant.

Maglio is a professional genealogist, writer, and speaker. He graduated from Northeastern University with a Bachelor of Science in Engineering.
