eth_indian 6:30 PM  -  7:30 PM Connecticut's Indigenous Peoples: An Introduction - Presentation by Dr. Lucianne Lavin     Tell a Friend
    Contact: Margaret Ferguson   860-868-7586   gunnprograms@biblio.org
   

Dr. Lucianne Lavin, author and Director of Research and Collections at the Institute for American Indian Studies in Washington, CT will offer a discussion and PowerPoint Presentation entitled Connecticut’s Indigenous People: An Introduction.   (Snowdate: Thursday, February 5, 2015 at 6:30pm)

Dr. Lavin shared, “CT’s Native American communities have long, rich histories that extend back to when they shared Mother Earth with mastodons and other extinct animals.  The story of their evolution into complex tribal societies with sophisticated social and political traditions and adaptations to constantly changing social landscapes after European contact have remained largely untold.”

She attempts to remedy the situation in her recent book, Connecticut’s Indigenous Peoples: What Archaeology, History and Oral Traditions tell us about their Communities and Cultures.  Dr. Lavin will discuss her background in anthropology, archaeology and indigenous studies and her reasons for writing the book and also introduce the audience to the book’s major tenets.

The book received an honorable mention at the 2013 New England Book Festival in the general non-fiction category, won an Award of Merit from the Connecticut League of History Organizations, won Second Place in the books category in the 2014 New England Museum Association Publication Award Competition, and was selected as a Choice Magazine Outstanding Academic Title for 2013 in the North America Category.

Dr.Lucianne Lavin is a member of the state’s Native American Heritage Advisory Council and Editor of the journal of the Archaeological Society of Connecticut. She is an anthropologist & archaeologist who has over 40 years of research and field experience in Northeastern archaeology and anthropology, including teaching, museum exhibits and curatorial work, cultural resource management, editorial work, and public relations

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

We are  pleased to welcome historian and author Peter C. Vermilyea for a presentation and signing of his recently released book Hidden History of Litchfield County. 

Traces of Litchfield County’s past are hidden in plain sight. Vestiges of long-abandoned railroad tracks crisscross the county while a decaying and unmarked cinderblock structure in Warren is all that remains of a cornerstone of national defense. All but forgotten today, a fire roared through Winsted in 1908, causing residents to flee their rooms at the Odd Fellows boardinghouse. In Bantam, art deco chairs made by the Warren McArthur Corporation prompted the War Department to order bomber seats from the company during World War II.

Author Peter C. Vermilyea explores these and other obscure tales from the history of Litchfield County, Connecticut.

Mr. Vermilyea teaches history at Housatonic Valley Regional High School in Falls Village, CT and at Western Connecticut State University.  A graduate of Gettysburg College he is the director of the scholarship program at his alma mater's Civil War Institute. Vermilyea is the author or editor of four books and more than a dozen articles, most on Civil War history.  His latest book is Hidden History of Litchfield County (History Press, 2014).

Hickory Stick Bookstore will provide books for purchase and for signing.

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

We welcome Bethlehem, CT author Nancy McMillan for a discussion and book signing of her recent work March Farm: Season by Season on a Connecticut Family Farm.  

March Farm in Bethlehem, CT is a 150-acre four-generation family farm that has weathered nearly 100 years of the vagaries of a life working the land.  The book follows this local farm through an annual cycle of preparation and harvest, highlighting the individual members of the March family working on the farm.  Using photographs and essays, the farm is followed through four seasons and offer up-close views of farming life.  Other essays present a wider perspective on the politics of food and farming.  Accompanying recipes use the five crops the farm produces. Books will be available for purchase and for signing. 

Nancy McMillan lives and writes in Bethlehem, Connecticut.  Her essays celebrating Connecticut farm life have appeared in Edible Nutmeg and Litchfield County Times. She is former chair of the Bethlehem Conservation Commission and current co-chair of the Open Space Committee.  Her passion for local farms led to this book. 

 Visit www.marchfarmthebook.com for more information on this book and the author.
