Brewster Ladies' Library, Brewster, Massachusetts
FREE and open to the public
Post-screening Q&A discussion, as well as a February 12 forum: "How Big is Too Big in Brewster?" at 6:30pm

The Brewster Community Network is screening the documentary One Big Home on February 10 at 2pm followed by a discussion. This film, twelve years in the making, follows one carpenter's journey to understand the trend toward giant houses. When he feels complicit in wrecking the place he calls home, Thomas Bena takes off his tool belt and picks up a camera.

A larger discussion on the issue of increasingly large homes in Brewster will take place at a forum on February 12 at 6:30pm. The forum: "How Big is Too Big in Brewster?" will spark discussion and learning from solutions developed by other Cape communities. Both events will be held at Brewster Ladies’ Library. 

The forum on February 12 will feature a presentation by Anne Greenbaum of OneTruro, the citizens’ group that worked with the Truro Planning Board in developing and helping pass bylaws restricting the size of homes both within and outside of the Cape Cod National Seashore in Truro. A follow-up panel discussion and audience Q&A will examine what’s currently allowed in Brewster, as well as explore the question, “How big is too big?” Panelists include Brewster town planner Ryan Bennett and local realtor Ned Chatelain of Chatelain Real Estate.
