WILMINGTON, MA — Below are 5 things to know in Wilmington on Thursday, August 6, 2020:

#1) Library On The Lawn

Would you like to browse and checkout books and DVDs?  Be sure to stop by the front of the library from 5pm to 7pm to peruse several carts of both adult and children’s materials.  Masks are required and we ask all to respect social distancing. This event will not take place during inclement weather.

#2) Wilmington Library & WCTV Presents “Modern Death”

The Wilmington Memorial Library and WCTV presents “Modern Death” at 7pm.

In his book, Modern Death, Dr. Haider Warraich takes a broader look at how we die today, from the cellular level up to the very definition of death itself. He explores the rituals and language of dying and provides an enriched understanding of how death differs from the past and how trends and events have transformed this most final of human experiences.

Dr. Warraich is a physician, writer, and clinical researcher.  His latest book is State of the Heart (2019). He completed internal medicine and cardiology training at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Harvard Medical School, and Duke University. He has appeared on the major TV channels and radio programs including Fresh Air with Terry Gross. Brought to you with federal funds provided by the Institute of Museum and Library Services and administered by the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners.
