Evenings at



A Curative Reading Series

Wednesdays in January 5:30 - 7:00 pm

Beginning January 8th 

HOME, West Acton Village Works 

525 Massachusetts Avenue, West Acton, MA

Every Wednesday in the winter twilight as Village Works shopkeepers are closing up for the night, the lights will remain bright, and candles lit at HOME. Stop by these cozy interiors to be rejuvenated with an inspired story, a taste of vibrant local food, and good company. 


This series of evening events will demonstrate the curative benefits of reading to enhance our connection to each other, the land and local community

Each week a different short story about an imaginary small village in rural America will be featured by Wendell Berry the well-known fiction writer, poet and advocate for the land and small local farming.  Drop in on a Wednesday of your choosing or come for the entire series. 

Reading inspired literature and sharing vibrant local food with good company promises to leave you with a whole new understanding of medicine and healing..
