1. The main Framingham Library presents Pulitzer Prize finalist Megan Marshall in a free lecture about Margaret Fuller tonight at 7.

The author of The Peabody Sisters looks at the​ ​trailblazing life of Margaret Fuller: Thoreau's editor, Emerson's friend, daring war correspondent and tragic heroine.
The​ ​event is part of the Lifelong Lecture Series​, a collaboration between the ​library and​ ​Framingham State University.​ The event is sponsored in part by the Friends of the Framingham Library.

2. In Case You Missed It: On Wednesday, Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren urges Congress to raise the debt ceiling immediately to prevent default and avoid recession.

 “We’re in this position for one reason, and one reason only: because Congress told the government to spend more money than we have – and Congress told the Treasury to run up our debt to pay for it – but now Congress is threatening to run out on the bill,” Senator Warren said.  “…The idea that we can somehow renege on our debts without paying a huge price is a fantasy — and a very dangerous one.” Watch her speak on the senate floor here.

​5. Tonight is also Brophy night at ben & Jerry's Ice Cream in Natick. A portion of proceeds sold after 6 p.m. will benefit the Brophy Elementary School PTO. For additional details click here.​
