Take a hike around the world starting at 7 p.m. at the Peabody Institute Library. Climber and mountain guide Craig John will discuss his climbing and guiding adventures around the world. His presentation will focus on his ascent of the North Ridge of Mount Everest and some of his other expeditions, including Kilimanjaro, Denali and Cho Oyu. Craig will talk about what it took to accomplish his goal of climbing Everest and what it was like to finally stand on top. The presentation is sponsored by the Friends of the Peabody Institute Libraries. The library is located at 82 Main St. in Peabody. For more information, call 978-531-0100, ext. 10, or visit

Join Maria Folsom, professor of literature at Wheelock College, for a presentation titled “Jane Austen is Alive and Well and Living in Swampscott,” which explores the everlasting appeal of Austen to her readers and her influence on other authors, even modern-day writers. The Jane Austen Tea and Lecture is part of Swampscott Public Library's week-long celebration of the English novelist. The event starts at 6:30 p.m., and will be held at 61 Burrill St., Swampscott. Register by calling 781-596-8867. Visit for more information.

If hiking and Jane Austen aren't your cup of tea, then head to Lowell for the high school boys hockey Division 2 North championship game. Despite being dubbed the underdogs, Danvers High School's boys hockey team (13-6-4) has survived the playoffs and will play in tonight's championship game against Wilmington (19-3-2), the heavily-favored defending Division 2 champs. Will Danvers take home the championship title? Find out at 6 p.m., at the Tsongas Center, located at 300 Martin Luther King, Jr. Way in Lowell. To learn more about Danvers' season, read Sports Editor Phil Stacey's story: “Can Danvers knock off heavily favored Wilmington?"
