Best Bets for Tuesday, March 11

Looking for something to do today? Here are The Salem News' Best Bets:

Who filled the pews in St. Michael's Church? If you're wondering the answer, come to St. Michael's Episcopal Church Parish Hall, 26 Pleasant St., Marblehead, tonight at 7:30. Author Robert Booth will discuss the Anglican people that filled the pews at St. Michael’s from 1714 to 1750; why they chose to be part of the poorest and smallest congregation in town; and how they fit into an evolving Marblehead in the second program of St. Michael’s tercentenary lecture series. For more information about this free event, email gracefriary@comcast.net or visit www.stmichaels2014.org.

Nina Siegal, author of “The Anatomy Lesson,” a historical novel based on painting by Rembrandt, visits Peabody Essex Museum's Morse Auditorium tonight at 7. The free event opens Golden Light, an exhibition that explores Dutch art and life in the 1600s through a selection of paintings from the internationally significant collection of Rose-Marie and Eijk van Otterloo. An author reception follows the presentation. PEM is at 161 Essex St., Salem. For more information, call 866-745-1876 or visit www.pem.org.

Connie Johnson Hambley will discuss her horse-themed novel “The Charity,” which is set in Hamilton, in the Collins Room at Ipswich Public Library, 25 N. Main St., Ipswich, at 7:30 p.m. Hambley writes about strong women in situations that demand the most from them. She uses her law and investment background along with her experience at a major Boston bank to incorporate clever schemes people dream up to launder money. Her talk will follow the Friends’ annual meeting at 7 p.m. For more information, visit www.ipswichlibrary.org or call 978-356-6648.
