Vote Yes on Article 29

Brookline’s commercial areas are made up of 3 basic groups, national chains, franchise and dealer owned operations, and independent businesses. Many affectionately refer to Independent, local stores as “mom and pops”.

Warrant article 29, which will be considered by Town Meeting in May, celebrates the contributions, resiliency, and heart of our local independent businesses. It’s also about encouraging the Town of Brookline to spend more of your hard-earned tax money locally, so your money can stay local.

The Abortion Buffer Zone Law Should be Upheld in Massachusetts

What is supposed to be a private decision becomes a public one, where women who are likely feeling vulnerable or nervous to begin with would be bombarded by a sanctimonious stranger handing out unsolicited advice, "counseling," and biased reading material.

Booked: Jennifer De Leon

Booked: Jennifer De Leon

 

July 17, 2014: Jennifer De Leon, a Boston Public School teacher and Grub Street writing school instructor, will be appearing with friend Celeste Ng (Everything I Never Told You) at the Brookline Booksmith, 279 Harvard Street, on Wednesday, July 23 at 7PM.

De Leon is the editor of Wise Latinas: Writers on Higher Education, a collection of personal essays by Latina writers—some of whom you will recognize, like Sandra Cisneros (The House on Mango Street) and Julia Alvarez (How the Garcia Girls Lost Their Accents), and some who may be new to you, like Ruth Behar and Joy Castro. Dealing with themes of cultural identity and assimilation, joy and homesickness, family bonds and independence, these essays mirror the diverse experiences of a population that is vastly underrepresented in undergraduate and grad programs across the country. It’s a book that will be appreciated by Latina students, who will see themselves in these true accounts; but as a non-Hispanic white woman, I also found the essays accessible, funny, and very moving.

I spoke by phone with Ms. De Leon about Wise Latinas and what she thinks is unique about the Latina college experience.

Elias Audy; It's All About Friendship

Elias Audy came to this country at the age of 20 on October 13, 1969 at 2:30pm; he actually remembers when his plane landed. Born in North Lebanon, a country known for it’s great education system, Elias comes from a tolerant community known for its diversity of religion and political ideologies. Odd isn’t it how so many Americans assume all immigrants come from a place less sophisticated than ours?
