Free To-Dos To-night

I’m wicked frazzled right now, but before I head out for a (hopefully) computer-free weekend, I just wanted to let you all know about two free happenings this evening:

1. At the Athenaeum (251 Benefit St):

Readings from the newly published anthology, Wild Dreams: the Best of Italian American, with editor-in-chief Carol Bonomo (Ahearn) Albright and contributors Ann Hood, Mary Caponegro, Peter Covino, Christine Palamidessi Moore, and Christina Bevilacqua. For over 30 years the journal Italian Americana has showcased writers who have chronicled Italian-American literary culture and helped to define an Italian-American imagination. Wild Dreams offers the best of those pages.

That runs from 5-7 and it’s free and open to the public; there’s also free sherry, if you’re into that sort of thing.

2. At Machines With Magnets (400 Main St, Pawtucket):

The Sight of Sound

OPENING PARTY: FRIDAY 3/6 7pm | free
+ DJ Heidi Phelps

FEATURING ::
Awesome Brothers, Michael Bizon, James Weinberg, Delia Kovac, Dave Kiersh, Jyll Ethier-Mullen, Lauren Minco, Andrea Kang, Jonathan Beller, Todd Sanchioni, Robert Adams Jr., James Re, Michelle Marchese, Shay Platz, Briana Horrigan, Christy Georg, John Jacobson & Shawn Wallace, Keith Souza, Lauren Holt, Allison Cole

No word on the sherry situation at this one.

[The photo, btw, is what comes up when you Google Image Search “Italian-Americans.”  I kind of wish Google still had the “I’m feeling lucky!” button for situations like this.]
