The Friends of the Fletcher Memorial Library will resume its Third Thursday programs for the 2010 year on Thursday, April 15 at 7 p.m.
A familiar member of the Ludlow community, Nancy Tanzer will present a two part series on Comparative Religions- the Eastern traditions of Islam, Hinduism and Buddhism. Attendees will discuss the origins, beliefs, sects and rituals of each of these religions.
Among the things that will be analyzed are the scriptures and rituals, as well as the current events and problems existing in the countries in which these religions are practiced. In Islam, particular attention will be paid to the actions of fundamentalists and the conflicts between sectarian dissidents. The only thing necessary for attendance is an open mind.
She is currently a Board Member of the Black River Academy and Museum , the Black River Valley Senior Center and Black River Good Neighbors. Nancy also serves as a docent at the Calvin Coolidge Memorial Foundation and teaches bridge to Ludlow seniors.
