The costumed character actors stationed at each gravestone will share their perilous tales of military service during The Great War as soldiers and nurses, fascinating accounts of what was happening on the home front in Washington, and much more. The tours depart from the Museum in groups of eighteen people every 8 minutes between 6:30 and 8:30 pm and last approximately 45 minutes. Numbers for the tours are handed out at the Museum starting at 6:15pm on Friday. A Halloween themed movie will be shown, and treats will be served, in the Library's Wykeham Room as you wait for your tour group to depart. The Museum will also be open for viewing of the World War One exhibit. The cemetery is dark and cold, please bring a flashlight with you and dress warmly!

    Contact: Margaret Ferguson   860-868-7586   gunnprograms@biblio.org
   

Gunn Memorial Library welcomes journalist and author George Krimsky, of Washington CT, for a fascinating PowerPoint presentation entitled Journalism During the Cold War & Today. 

Mr. Krimsky will speak about international journalism during the Cold War, when the world arena was largely seen as a competitive game between superpowers and when the print press still ruled the media roost.  As background he will describe the major differences in geopolitics and media from then to now.  George Krimsky will talk about his experiences in Moscow in the 1970s when he was a reporter for the Associated Press and was expelled by his Soviet hosts on what he calls a false charge of spying.

“Being a foreign correspondent in those days may seem as staid as an armchair chess game, compared to the high-tech gunfight at the OK Corral today, but it was not without its excitement,” he says.

After the discussion and visual presentation, Mr. Krimsky will be pleased to take questions and comments. 

George A. Krimsky, who lives with his wife, Paula, in Washington, CT is a journalist and author who spent much of his career working abroad. He covered the Soviet Union during the Cold War and the Middle East in the late 1970s before managing the World News Department for the Associated Press.  He later co-founded a media training center in Washington D.C and capped his career in community journalism here in Connecticut.

nat_moon_full 2:00 PM  -  3:00 PM A Gunn Gem - J&R Lamb Studios Stained Glass Window     Tell a Friend
    Contact: Margaret Ferguson   860-868-7586   gunnprograms@biblio.org
   

We welcome Markis Tomascak, owner of Dragonfly Studios for a presentation on his expert restoration of the library’s intricately designed J&R Lamb Studios stained glass window.  Designed by Frederick Stymetz Lamb, this stunning creation was donated in 1908 to the newly built library by Richard Storrs Barnes - in memory of his late adolescent son, Goodrich Barnes.  This glass gem was completely restored by Mr. Tomascak in 2010.

The picturesque scene shows two women of ancient Greek, or perhaps Roman, dress and style. Engaged in artistry and literature these women are clearly representations defining the practicality and importance of education and culture.  How appropriate that for the last century they have been featured in the stained glass window at the centerpiece of Washington’s cultural center, the Gunn Memorial Library. 

The women are shadowed by flourishing fruit trees. The woman on the right stands against the blossoming tree absorbed in a tablet she’s studying.   On the left, the other woman sits leaning against identical vegetation, gently sketching while hidden from the soft, goldenrod skies around her.  The partition between them is a picture of a window adorned with ivy and other such growth. 

Founded in 1857, J&R Lamb Studios is the oldest continuously operating facility in the United States and has been at the forefront of Stained Glass art, creating (and restoring) works for major religions, public entities and private facilities throughout the United States and the world. 

Markis Tomascak is the owner/artist of Dragonfly Studios in New Milford, CT, where he resides.  The studio restores stained glass, designs original stained glass, antique lighting as well as mirror restoration and creates etched glass, gilding, blown glass, graphic design and signage (site signs, vehicle graphics, four color vehicle wraps, banners, interior and exterior signage – large and small.) In addition, the studio also offers tee shirts, airbrushing, photography, promotional items and classes.

Some of Mr. Tomascak’s clients include Harvard University, Yale University, Pottery Barn, Astor Chocolate, Budweiser, Cadillac, Royal Carribean Cruise Lines, Delancy Street Foundation, St. Gregory's Church, Danbury, CT, United Methodist Church, New Milford, CT, St. John's Episcopal Church, New Milford, CT, St. Paul's Church, Brookfield, CT,  Mariani Gardens, Armonk, NY, White Horse Pub, Marbledale, CT and Colony IV Diner, Bethel, CT among many others.  For more information on Dragonfly Studios please visit their Facebook Page.  Mr. Tomascak can also be reached at 203 788 5005 or dragonflyglasssign@yahoo.com

lib_book_signing 6:30 PM  -  7:30 PM Washington, CT Author Amy Julia Becker     Tell a Friend
    Contact: Margaret Ferguson   860-868-7586   gunnprograms@biblio.org
   

We are pleased to welcome Washington, CT author Amy Julia Becker for a discussion and signing of her newly released book Small Talk: Learning From My Children About What Matters Most.  

Almost every day, one of Amy Julia’s children says something or asks something that prompts her to think more carefully.  Small Talk is a delightful narrative based upon these daily occurrences.  It tells stories based upon the questions and statements her children have made about the things that make life good (such as love, kindness, beauty, laughter, and friendship), the things that make life hard (such as death, failure, and tragedy), and what we believe (such as prayer, God, and miracles).

Amy Julia moves in rough chronological order through the basic questions her kids asked when they were very young to the more intellectual and spiritual questions of later childhood. Small Talk invites other parents into these same conversations, with their children, with God, and with themselves. Moving from humorous exchanges to profound questions to heart-wrenching moments, Amy Julia encourages parents to ask themselves—and to talk with their children about—what matters most.

Amy Julia Becker was selected as one of the 50 most influential people in Litchfield County by Litchfield Magazine in 2014.  She writes and speaks about family, faith, disability, and culture. A graduate of Princeton University and Princeton Theological Seminary, she is the author of Penelope Ayers: A Memoir, A Good and Perfect Gift (Bethany House), named one of the Top Ten Books of the Year by Publisher's Weekly. Her essays have appeared in The New York Times, The Atlantic, The Huffington Post, Parents.com, First Things, The Philadelphia Inquirer, The Hartford Courant, The Christian Century, Christianity Today, and Books and Culture.

    Contact: Margaret Ferguson   860-868-7586   gunnprograms@biblio.org
   

We are pleased to welcome Washington, CT, resident Ruth Jaffe as she leads a program entitled, Conversational Spanish for All.  This will be conducted on Mondays at 11:00am on November 3, November 10, December 1 and December 8, 2014. 

This is the ideal opportunity for those who wish to learn basic conversational Spanish, as well as for those who wish to strengthen their verbal skills in the language.  All ages, stages and levels of proficiency in Spanish are welcome.  The gatherings will take place in the casual, relaxed setting in the Reading Room of the library, inviting spontaneity of interaction.     Structured guidance and individual, as well as group, feedback will be focal elements of each meeting.  Be prepared to conquer your linguistic reticence and take a leap into ESPAÑOL! 

Participants are welcome to join one or more of the discussions and also invited to brown-bag their own late breakfast or early lunch.

Ruth Jaffe is a psychoanalyst/psychotherapist in private practice in Washington, CT, and Manhattan.  Her academic background, particularly in her native Argentina, includes the teaching of languages from elementary through college levels.  As a teenager, she attended the renowned Instituto Nacional del Profesorado en Lenguas Vivas, from which she graduated with a teaching degree prior to her acceptance at the School of Medicine of Buenos Aires University. She later came to the U.S. on a scholarship to study Psychology -- & the rest ' es historia '.
