July 1: "Zootopia is a city like no other.  Comprising habitat neighborhoods like ritzy Sahara Square and frigid Tundratown, it's a melting pot where animals from every environment live together.  But when optimistic Officer Judy Hopps arrives, she discovers that being the first bunny on a police force of big, tough animals isn't so easy.  Determined to prove herself, she jumps at the opportunity to crack a case, even if it means partnering with a fast-talking, scam-artist fox, Nick Wilde."

misc_none 6:30 PM  -  7:30 PM Author Talk: F. Mark Granato - Of Winds and Rage Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

Author F. Mark Granato will talk about his riveting historical fiction thriller, Of Winds and Rage.  He will explain the extensive research that went into building the backdrop of his story, the monster hurricane that struck the coast of New England in 1938.  Granato made a close study of the storm's behavior as well as the U.S. Weather Bureau's role in the disaster. 

Registration is required and begins on June 4th.

Of Winds and Rage Summary:

September, 1938: An angry hurricane is racing across the Atlantic as the fledgling US Weather Bureau scrambles to track the monster storm. Inexplicably, the forecasters lose sight of the typhoon, which unfathomably grows more powerful and takes direct aim at an unsuspecting New England. Even as the deadly storm approaches, on the wealthy Rhode Island summer retreat of Napatree Point, there is another kind of evil lurking. With a trail of blood marking his every eerie advance, a man of equally terrifying proportions is being hunted by lawmen dedicated to stopping the crazed murderer’s killing spree since his escape days earlier from the State Prison in Wethersfield, Connecticut. No one is safe from the threat of man and nature as the insane killer and an epic hurricane descend together on the unsuspecting beaches of the Rhode Island coastline, bent on death and destruction.

misc_none 6:30 PM  -  7:30 PM Tories, Spies and Traitors: Divided Loyalty in Revolutionary Connecticut Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

Which side are you on?  That's the question that everyone in Connecticut had to answer in 1775, as the thirteen colonies began a rebellion against British rule.  For soldiers and civilians alike, loyalty could mean loss of fortune, of friends, and even of life.  This presentation reveals stories - some well known, some obscure - of Nutmeggers who risked and sacrificed to support their chosen side during this "tumultuous jarring time of civil war."  

Presented by Natalie Belanger, Visitor Services Associate at the Connecticut Historical Society and History Teacher at Manchester Community College, Asnuntuck Community College, and Goodwin College. Registration is required and begins on June 27th.

This month's selection is Our Souls at Night by Kent Haruf.

 

“A fitting close to a storied career, a beautiful rumination on aging, accommodation, and our need to connect. . . . As a meditation on life and forthcoming death, Haruf couldn’t have done any better. He has given us a powerful, pared-down story of two characters who refuse to go gentle into that good night.” (The Philadelphia Enquirer)
