(You can view all of the following programs on our Video OnDemand page by clicking here.)
Amor Towles, best-selling author of the Milton Reads novel “A Gentleman in Moscow,” recently came to town to give a rare talk about his book. Though he doesn’t do many appearances, he happened to be in the area, and was able to speak at the MHS auditorium, as well as answer audience questions. This special program is not available online, so the only way to see it is to tune in to the Public channel (Comcast 9/RCN 13) during the Monday Forum at 5 p.m.
Host Christine Paxhia takes viewers inside a unique Fletcher Steele-designed garden at a home on School Street in a new episode of “The Milton Garden Path.” The renowned early-20th Century landscape architect is famous for his terraced gardens, in particular his masterpiece Naumkeag in Stockbridge, but he also designed a small number of plots in Milton. Catch this rare glimpse into a private work of backyard art as this program airs on the Public channel Wednesdays at 6:30 p.m. and Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays at 11 a.m.
Summer reading is the topic of the day in the June edition of the Milton Library Update. Get the scoop on all the events coming up at the library, including a new art display in the Wotiz Gallery. Take a look when this program airs on Monday and Wednesday mornings at 7 a.m. as well as Tuesday evenings at 7 p.m., all on the Public channel.
