What to Do August 5 in Tewksbury: Coco, Housing Authority, Virtual Author Series

It’s a rainy Thursday, but look for clearing later — though unfortunately not in time for the Tewksbury Community Market to go on tonight. We’ll miss the debut of the Shishkaberrys of New England Food Truck and hope to see them next week. You can check the Market’s website for a full lineup.

Three things to do in town:

Merrimack Valley Pavilion is showing Coco at its popup drive in. The movie begins at dusk, and mini golf is half-price while you wait. The venue, at 2087 Main St., also offers ice cream and slush. Tickets are $25 per car and are available online or at the door.

If your taste runs more to local governance, the Tewksbury Housing Authority will meet at 4 p.m. at the Saunders Circle Community Center, at Saunders Circle. The Authority seeks to “promote adequate and affordable housing, economic opportunity and a suitable living environment free from discrimination” for low-income residents. Tonight’s agenda includes a report on current vacancies, a discussion of Community Preservation Committee designations and budget comparisons. This is an open meeting, and all residents may attend. Learn more about the THA on its Facebook or town page, (where minutes from meetings held since December 2020 will hopefully be posted soon).

Finally, the Tewksbury Public Library continues its Virtual Bestselling Author Series. Tonight from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. you can hear author Michael Blanding discuss his latest book, North by Shakespeare: A Rogue Scholar’s Quest for the Truth Behind the Bard’s Work, which tells the story of self-taught scholar Dennis McCarthy’s quixotic quest to prove that many of Shakespeare’s plays are based on earlier source plays written by the courtier and translator Sir Thomas North. The author traveled with McCarthy through England and Italy, in and out of foreign archives, and back in time to royal intrigues in Elizabeth’s court culminating in this engaging book.
