*Join the Scandinavian Cultural Center for Carolus Rex- An Afternoon of Swedish History Concerning King Charles XII and the Great Northern War on Saturday, November 6th at 1:00 p.m. Join Michael Glaeser for this informative lecture as he walks you through the tales of the last of Sweden’s warrior kings.  Often placed in one of two extreme categories- a noble warrior fated to defend a doomed empire – or – a tyrant driven by glory and bloodlust who sacrificed his kingdom on the altar of war.  As always, history is a bit more nuanced.  Register here to learn more about this nuanced King Charles XII.

*Newton Nomadic Theater presents the traveling one-woman show, Miss Delta Township.  A smart, moving, wildly inventive, and uproariously funny work by Joanne Callum Powers.  Performances will be held in NCA’s very own Allen Center for the Arts.  Miss Delta Township will perform this weekend to sold-out crowds.
