misc_none 6:30 PM  -  8:30 PM Healthy Living Series Management of Severe Obesity Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

Dr. Edward Hannoush, of Hospital of Central Connecticut will discuss severe obesity, the number one cause of poor health and preventable death in the United States.  

Obesity means having too much body fat. It is different from being overweight, which means weighing too much. The weight may come from muscle, bone, fat, and/or body water. Both terms mean that a person's weight is greater than what's considered healthy for his or her height.

Obesity occurs over time when you eat more calories than you use. The balance between calories-in and calories-out differs for each person. Factors that might affect your weight include your genetic makeup, overeating, eating high-fat foods, and not being physically active.

Being obese increases your risk of diabetes, heart disease, stroke, arthritis, and some cancers. If you are obese, losing even 5 to 10 percent of your weight can delay or prevent some of these diseases. For example, that means losing 10 to 20 pounds if you weigh 200 pounds.

The Doctor will offer obesity prevention options the medical and surgical treatments available.

misc_none 7:00 PM  -  9:00 PM Southington Reads 2015 Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

The Southington Library is delighted to announce that Chris Bohjalian's highly acclaimed historical novel, The Sandcastle Girls, has been chosen as our 2015 Southington Reads book. The Sandcastle Girls tells the story of the Armenian genocide through the eyes of a survivor's descendant.

The Sandcastle Girls was named a Best Book of 2012 by the Washington Post, Library Journal, Kirkus Reviews, and BookPage. It was also an Oprah Book.

Here is what the critics had to say:
"Bohjalian powerfully narrates an intricately nuanced romance with a complicated historical event at the forefront. With the centennial of the Armenian genocide fast approaching, this is not to be missed. Simply astounding." -- Library Journal (starred review)

"Bohjalian succeeds in depicting the horror, without sentimentalizing it. . . He has fulfilled the duty of anyone seeking to document a genocide -- he ensures that we don't look away." -- The Boston Globe

"Dead-solid perfect. Bohjalian is a literary novelist unafraid to reference Proust's madeleine and expect readers to get it. But his books are also filled with artfully drawn characters and great, passionate storytelling. The Sandcastle Girls is all that, but different, more powerful." -- The Seattle Times

Chris Bohjalian will be speaking about The Sandcastle Girls at the Aqua Turf on the evening of Wednesday, March 25, 2015. Registration for this free program is required.  Please click on the register button below or contact the Reference/Information desk to save your seat. Copies of The Sandcastle Girls are available to borrow from the library.
