FRAMINGHAM – For more than a century, the matryoshka doll has captured the interest and delight of adults and children alike. Recognized all over the world as the quintessential Russian souvenir, the dolls provide a fascinating glimpse into the many facets of Russian culture.

The free program takes place at the community room in the Christa McAuliffe Branch library on Water Street in Framingham.

No registration is required. Masks must be worn, per the City’s indoor mask mandate policy.

The program will explore the evolution of the doll, with an emphasis on the folktale and storytelling dolls.
