NEVERHOME tells the harrowing story of Ash Thompson during the battle for the South. Through bloodshed and hysteria and heartbreak, she becomes a hero, a folk legend, a madwoman and a traitor to the American cause.

OCTOBER'S BOOK: The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman
 
Bod is an unusual boy who inhabits an unusual place—he's the only living resident of a graveyard. Raised from infancy by the ghosts, werewolves, and other cemetery denizens, Bod has learned the antiquated customs of his guardians' time as well as their ghostly teachings—such as the ability to Fade so mere mortals cannot see him.

Can a boy raised by ghosts face the wonders and terrors of the worlds of both the living and the dead?

    Contact: Leah Farrell   860-673-6791   lfarrell@farmingtonlibraries.org
   

Music lovers will appreciate this deep-dive into the roots of American folk music!

Music journalist and writer Craig Harris returns for a discussion of his new book, Bluegrass, Newgrass, Old-time and Americana Music

Harris will take you on an entertaining and informative journey through what may be the first comprehensive history of old-time music and bluegrass with all of their incredibly diverse and multidimensional roots. Combining research with more than 120 exclusive interviews, Harris traces the path from the earliest days of mountain music to the groundbreaking sounds of Grammy winners Alison Krauss, Béla Fleck, and Jerry Douglas’s Earls of Leicester.

Craig Harris is the author of several books on roots music, American Indian music, and the Band. He has performed with Melanie, Rod MacDonald, Jonathan Edwards, Rick Danko, and the Gaea Star Band, with whom he cohosts a weekly radio show. Harris taught music in public and charter schools before launching his award-winning Drum Away the Blues program.

Join Jodie DeSalvo, internationally-acclaimed concert pianist, as well as the Farmington Libraries staff to honor the late Nancy DeSalvo, who served as Coordinator of Children & Youth Services in the Farmington Library system for over 30 years. Jodie will perform several of her mother-in-law Nancy's favorite pieces to honor her life of 90 years on the anniversary of her passing.

A gifted storyteller, Nancy was an innovator in the field of preschool programming and promoted the importance of books, toys, music and puppets in early childhood development. Highlights of her distinguished career include the Faith Hektoen Librarian of the Year Award from the Connecticut Library Association, serving on both the American Library Association Caldecott and Newbery committees and the “TV Turnoff Campaign” which became a sensation and which garnered attention from talk show host David Letterman. Nancy also wrote a book, Beginning with Books Library Programming for Infants, Toddlers and Preschoolers. With her contagious laugh and smile Nancy made the library a welcoming place for children and their caregivers. She was a true gem.

All ages welcome.


Jodie DeSalvo has captured national and international attention with her classical and jazz interpretations of the masters of keyboard literature. Upon winning the Artist International Competition in 1988, Ms. DeSalvo made her Carnegie Hall debut to critical acclaim with an encore performance two years later at Lincoln Center. She has been a top prize winner in the Young Keyboard Artists Competition, the American Music Scholarship Competition and the National Federation of Music Clubs Competition. A graduate of the Hartt and Manhattan Schools of Music, and a former student of John Browning and Gary Graffman, she is also a past recipient of the Artist Fellowship Grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. 

Ms. DeSalvo has toured extensively as a piano soloist appearing with the orchestras of Chicago, Geneva, Lucerne, San Francisco, Hartford and Chautauqua under the batons of noted Maestros Edvard Tchivzhel, Christopher Wilkins, David Effron and Gisele Ben Dor. A frequent soloist with the Naples Philharmonic, she has appeared on the classical and pops series with Jorge Mester, Jeff Tyzik and Bruce Hangen. A noted chamber player, Ms. DeSalvo has appeared with cellist Sharon Robinson, violinists Glenn Basham and Jennifer Frautschi, the Miami String Quartet, the Bergonzi String Quartet and members of the American String Quartet. She has performed at such prestigious festivals as Brevard, Chautauqua, Birch Creek, as well as over 100 times on National Public Radio.

OCTOBER'S BOOK: Brick Lane by Monica Ali

After an arranged marriage to Chanu, a man twenty years older, Nazneen is taken to London, leaving her home and heart in the Bangladeshi village where she was born. Her new world is full of mysteries. How can she cross the road without being hit by a car (an operation akin to dodging raindrops in the monsoon)? What is the secret of her bullying neighbor Mrs. Islam? What is a Hell's Angel? And how must she comfort the naïve and disillusioned Chanu?

As a good Muslim girl, Nazneen struggles to not question why things happen. She submits, as she must, to Fate and devotes herself to her husband and daughters. Yet to her amazement, she begins an affair with a handsome young radical, and her erotic awakening throws her old certainties into chaos.

Caring for an elderly and disabled family member or close friend is one of the most important—and complicated—roles you’ll play. It can happen suddenly, with an accident or illness, or it may start with driving your loved one to get groceries or going to the doctor. Later, you may find yourself taking more time off from work, preparing meals or handling their finances.

Whether you’re just beginning to anticipate a need or currently taking care of a family member, this seminar will provide resources and practical tools for you and your loved one. Topics will include financial resources, where to find support and services, overview of types of care, how to access help and how to manage stress.

    Contact: Leah Farrell   860-673-6791   lfarrell@farmingtonlibraries.org
   

Honor Veterans Day with a film and discussion about how we as a community can help veterans in need.

Almost Sunrise tells the inspiring story of two young men, Tom Voss and Anthony Anderson, who, in an attempt to put their haunting Iraq combat experiences behind them, embark on an extraordinary journey - a 2,700 mile trek on foot across America. While the film exposes some of the brutality of war, it doesn't dwell there. It's ultimately a story of hope and potential solutions. Most importantly, the film reveals they promise of holistic practices for healing.

The film also acts as an urgent call for communities to better understand these deep-seated psychic wounds, and for the government to acknowledge and finally treat moral pain by using other methods than pills. Please join us for this 98 minute documentary and gain a better understanding of the veterans in our lives and how we can work together to serve and honor them when they come home. A brief discussion will follow.

Presented as part of the Resiliance Grows Here initiative of the Farmington Valley Health District.

Funny, heart-wrenching, time-traveling, world-bending, stereotype shattering YA books have been making a mark on society for decades and it’s time for us adults who love them to stop hiding in the shadows.

NOVEMBER'S BOOK: Scythe by Neal Shusterman

A world with no hunger, no disease, no war, no misery: humanity has conquered all those things, and has even conquered death. Now Scythes are the only ones who can end life—and they are commanded to do so, in order to keep the size of the population under control. Citra and Rowan are chosen to apprentice to a scythe—a role that neither wants. These teens must master the “art” of taking life, knowing that the consequence of failure could mean losing their own.

    Contact: Leah Farrell   860-673-6791   lfarrell@farmingtonlibraries.org
   

Agnes Vertes was born Agnes Katz in Budapest, Hungary, in 1940. Germany occupied Hungary in March 1944; deportations of the nation's Jews began in May. Hungarian Jews represented about one half of all Jews murdered at the Auschwitz-Birkenau camp, according to the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. First Agnes, her younger sister, and her mother lived with relatives in the countryside to escape the bombing. Then her father came for them. "Not one of those in the villages survived. If I stayed there I definitely would've been smoke," she says, referring to the crematoriums at Auschwitz. Soon after she and her sister returned to Budapest. A woman came and promised their parents she would keep the girls safe. Her presentation discusses how they were ultimately saved.

PLEASE REGISTER


Kristallnacht, also referred to as the Night of Broken Glass, was a series of coordinated attacks against Jews throughout Nazi Germany and parts of Austria on November 9-10, 1938. German authorities looked on as SA paramilitary and civilians carried out these attacks and covered the streets with broken glass from the windows of Jewish-owned stores, buildings, and synagogues. This annual event at the Farmington Libraries commemorates the human spirit’s ability to overcome such persecution.
