IN-PERSON GATHERINGS: Summer on the Terrace

“One benefit of Summer was that each day we had more light to read by.” - Jeannette Walls, The Glass Castle

Find that quote relatable? Summer is in full swing in Boston, and the Athenaeum invites you to socialize over a spritz and savor a sweet summer breeze - introducing Wednesdays on the Terrace! As we rebuild our social circles after the past two years, it can be challenging to know where to begin. Look no further than your fellow Athenaeum members, whose same proclivities towards a snug second floor work nook, the peace and beauty of the fifth floor, and the simple pleasure of a good book set you apart from the typical summer crowd. Indulge in a cool glass of wine, beer, or a nonalcoholic beverage, nibble at charcuterie and light bites, and enjoy the sunny views over Tremont Street all while finding meaningful connections with like-minded friends. You never know when one of our resident hawks will swoop down and say hello, too - they’ve RSVP’d as a Maybe. Register now for the first Wednesday on the Terrace of the year and raise a toast to summer with classic Athenaeum flair. We hope to see you there!
