“Serial” Podcast Listen & Discussion Group

Wednesday, February 17th, 2016 at 7:00 pm
And every following Wednesday evening through mid-March

serialSeason 1, Episode 7

Calling all mystery-lovers! Each Wednesday evening in early 2016 we’ll be meeting to listen to an episode of the wildly popular podcast, “Serial.” Produced by NPR’s This American Life, “Serial” investigates a real-life crime case, sifting through witness testimony, evidence, the time line, and expert theories. Each short episode is similar to a radio-show segment, and we’ll listen together then discuss what we’ve just heard. There will be hot cocoa and other refreshments, and no registration is required. Feel free to bring your own quiet activities, such as knitting and coloring books, to work on while we listen to the episodes. Call 781-769-0200 x110 or email norprograms@minlib.net if you have any questions.

If we have to cancel due to weather, we’ll bump that night’s episode to the next week. If we meet but you can’t make it, come another day when the weather abates and we can catch you up, or show you how to listen at home. And, if the need arises, we may add a daytime session – we’ll see where the winter takes us!
