Lowell This Weekend: April 9-12

Thursday April 9, 7-9pm, Pollard Library
Parker at the Pollard: Hollywood Heist: Brinks Job
"On January 17, 1950, seven robbers in Halloween masks walked into a counting room of the Brink�s armored car garage in Boston and walked out with $2.5 million in cash, checks and securities. It was the largest robbery in U.S. history to date. For six years, authorities worked to crack the case. Just before the statute of limitations ran out, one of the robbers ratted out his comrades. Come see author Stephanie Schorow take us through this 'Crime of the Century' and reveal all the exciting details of the case. This event is free and open to the public.

Saturday April 11, 2pm, Barnes & Noble
Author Reading: "Brush Cat: On trees, the wood economy, and the most dangerous job in America" by Jack McEnany
"Although the logging industry is a lightning rod for green concerns, McEnany effectively presents the case for generations of independent loggers who work the Great Northern Forest in New Hampshire. This is his home, and he did his research on the job and in the local bars. He dips deeply into the centuries of economic interdependence between the towns and the woods, while also describing the care with which “brush cats” tend to the trees." --Colleen Mondor For more information please call 978-458- 3939.
