Reflecting on Revolution:
Commemorating the Centenary of 1917

An afternoon with historian and humorist Jennifer Eremeeva



This year marks the centenary of the October Revolution of 1917–a monumental event that profoundly shaped the present geopolitical reality.

Humorist and historian Jennifer Eremeeva will reflect on the cultural and political significance of the Revolution over the past century; explore why Russia’s leaders are ignoring this significant anniversary; and theorize what can be gleaned from this about Russia’s political future. The talk will conclude with a lively Q&A.

A reception featuring a signature cocktail and zakuska (Russian hors d’oeuvres) created by Eremeeva—who is also a food writer and curator—will follow the talk. Ms. Eremeeva will be signing her books, Lenin Lives Next Door: Marriage, Martinis and Mayhem in Moscow and Have Personality Disorder, Will Rule Russia, which will be available for purchase.

WHAT: Church of the Good Shepherd will be hosting a diaper pantry for WIC clients & others, living in Clinton, Bolton, Sterling, Lancaster, Berlin or Boylston or WIC Clinton clients. Thirty free diapers per month are available for qualified children, newborn to age 3 1/2.

      WHEN: First Wednesday of each month – 4:00-5:30 pm Third Tuesday of each month – 10:30 am- 12 pm (Recipients may pick up diapers once per month.)

WHERE: Church of the Good Shepherd, 209 Union Street, Clinton MA – 978-365-5169

Please bring your WIC Household ID number. If you are not enrolled in WIC, you must bring your child’s birth certificate to the first pick-up. Only parents or legal guardians may pick up diapers for a child. Diapers may be picked up once per month. For example, if you attend a Wednesday diaper pantry, you are not eligible to pick up more diapers at the Tuesday pantry in the same month.

It is our hope to supply diapers to all who qualify, but the reality is we may run out of diapers in certain sizes or run out of diapers completely. Your feedback and needs will be taken into consideration for any future diaper pantry openings.

Upcoming Diaper-A-Day Pantry Days:

 Wednesday August 2 @ 4-5:30pm

 Tuesday August 15 @ 10:30am-12pm

Questions? Call 978 – 365 – 5169.
