April Events for Women in Greater Boston!

We scoured lots of websites to find what we think look like really interesting things to do next month. If you know of an event you’d like to share with the group, let us know! – XO The Team

Wild Wanderings: Nature Immersion Trail Walk, April 6, 9am-12pm, Harold Parker State Forest, Andover – Enjoy an engaging and inspiring walk just for women on trails throughout Eastern Massachusetts. The walks begin April 6 and continue on Saturdays throughout August. Each walk is about 2.1 miles, and all are rated “easy.” What a lovely way to get some gentle exercise while enjoying and exploring nature trails. Walks are guided by trained Herbalist Leanne Shafner, who often includes a relaxing and grounding meditation or forest bathing session as part of the experience. Tickets are $20/person.

Boston in Fiction: A Conversation with Authors Frances McNamara and JB Harris, April 10, 6-7pm, The Hub on Causeway Community Room, 52 Causeway Street, Boston – We love books that take place locally, and here’s a great opportunity to enjoy a lively discussion about Boston in historical fiction. Frances McNamara grew up in Boston, where her father was Police Commissioner for 10 years. She’ll talk about her new novel, Three-Decker Murder in a Nutshell. JB Harris’s short fiction has appeared in several publications, and she’ll discuss her first novel, The Immigrant’s Wife. Frances and JB also will answer questions about the process of writing historical Boston stories. Tickets are $10/person. To learn more and register, click here

Make Your Own Signature Scent, Fridays and Saturdays, 6-7:30pm, at the House of Art and Craft, 524 Western Avenue, Boston – Steysy Clark founded House of Art and Craft in 2016 to create truly clean and transparent home products that enhance mood and life’s experiences. Bring your crew and learn how to create your very own signature fragrance at her Perfume Making Class. Steysy will guide you through the basics of perfume making using the finest ingredients. Your registration fee of $99/person includes an introduction to natural perfumery, raw materials and supplies, and complimentary wine and soft drinks. To learn more, visit www.houseofartandcraft.com

The Swan Boats Return – April 13-September 2, daily from 10-4pm, The Boston Public Garden – It’s officially spring when the Swan Boats make their way back to the Public Garden Lagoon. The Swan Boat story dates back to the 1870s when Robert Paget, whose descendants continue to operate the business, was granted a boat for hire licensed by the City of Boston. Rowing a small boat in the Lagoon was a favorite summer pastime for city residents during the day and evening, and it still is!  Tickets are $4.50 for adults, $4 for senior citizens, $3 for children aged 2-15, and children under 2 ride free.

Sofia Talvik in Concert – April 25, 7pm, Scandinavian Cultural Center, 206 Waltham Street Newton – Sofia Talvik is a rare artist and avid storyteller with a voice comparable to giants of folk. From one review: ”A singer/songwriter who is able to evoke the essence of Laurel Canyon circa the ‘60s as expressed in the work of Joni Mitchell, Judy Collins, Buffy Sainte-Marie and others who were able to paint beautiful tapestries from words and music.” She performs her delicate songs in an intimate way that showcases her angelic voice. Tickets are $20/person. To learn more and purchase tickets click here

Boston’s Freedom Trail – Brenda walked by Paul Revere’s house on the Freedom Trail most weekdays for almost 10 years and never went inside. Don’t be like Brenda. This is a perfect time to walk some or all of the Trail’s 16 historic sites before Boston welcomes our summer visitors. In addition to the official Walk into History Tour, you also can do a tour that focuses on Boston’s Revolutionary Women, African-American Patriots, the North End, and even a Historic Pub Crawl Private Tour (yes please). You can purchase tickets online, or at the Boston Common Visitor Information Center at 139 Tremont Street. What a great way to get friends and family together to celebrate our history!

Great ideas. So much to love and enjoy with our city. Think I’ll stop and “grab a slice” while I’m there. ( 🍕)
