misc_none 7:00 PM  -  8:00 PM Deep Brain Stimulation Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   


The most common surgical treatment for Parkinson’s disease is deep brain stimulation (DBS), although it is used for other debilitating disorders. Dr. Mohama Khaled, a neurosurgery specialist will discuss DBS on Thursday, September 28 at 7:00 p.m. at the Kent Memorial Library, 61 Ffyler Place. Similar to available drug treatments, DBS does not slow down the disease or restore sick and dying nerve cells affected by Parkinson’s disease, but rather offers symptomatic benefits. In DBS, a thin electrode is implanted into the brain, targeting motor circuits that are not functioning properly. Small electrical pulses from a device similar to a cardiac pacemaker are then used to stimulate a small brain region and block the signals that cause some Parkinson’s symptoms. Dr. Khaled will discuss what the DBS procedure entails, FDA approved devices and other pertinent research.

EXPLORING OTHER CULTURES WITH AUTHOR SABEEHA REHMAN. Sabeeha Rehman talks about her journey as a Pakistani Muslim to an American Muslim using her book, “Threading My Prayer Rug” as the basis for her talk.  Sabeeha migrated to the United States in 1971 as a bride in an arranged marriage to a doctor from Pakistan who had also migrated to this country.  When her children started grade school, she started grad school, earning a Masters degree in healthcare administration, and began a 25-year career as a hospital administrator.   When she realized her children knew next to nothing about their faith, she, with her husband and friends established a Muslim community, built a mosque, and agonized over whether to put up a Christmas tree.  After her grandson was diagnosed with autism, she cofounded the New York Metro chapter of the National Autism Association and served as its first president.   She has spent several decades working for interfaith dialogue, was the director of interfaith programs at the American Society for Muslim Advancement, and the COO for the Cordoba Initiative.   In 2014, she retired to write her memoir. She lives with her husband Khalid in New York City.

ent_gclef 2:00 PM Symphonie Fantastique by Hector Berlioz Presented by Jeffrey Engel Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

AT THE SUFFIELD SENIOR CENTER, 145 BRIDGE STREET

Passionate love. Opium induced hallucinations. Murder and execution by guillotine. A Witches' Sabbath and general mayhem. Elements of a Gothic novel or a horror film…these are images conjured up by Hector Berlioz’s Symphonie Fantastique, an appropriate Halloween musical nightmare composed for a 130- piece symphony orchestra. Berlioz’s intention and life will be explained entertainingly by Jeffrey Engel, a beloved musicologist on Saturday, October 21 at 2:00 p.m.  at the Suffield Senior Center, 145 Bridge Street.  This is a Kent Memorial Library program, funded by The Friends of the Library.

The music of Berlioz has often been cited as extremely influential in the development of the features central to the Romantic period of music.  He was considered extremely progressive for his day, and he, Wagner, and Liszt have been called the "Great Trinity of Progress" of 19th-century Romanticism.

As a cellist, Jeffrey Engel played with numerous orchestras in France including that of the Paris Opera, performed in chamber ensembles and taught in municipal conservatories. He has given entertaining and informative music history lectures in various venues for 15 years, including as an adjunct professor at the University of Connecticut in Torrington.

AT THE SUFFIELD SENIOR CENTER, 145 BRIDGE STREET

NO REGISTRATION NECESSARY, DROP IN

2017 marks the 100th Anniversary of the United State’s entry into World War One. In an effort to help preserve this significant part of our history, the Kent Memorial Library and the Suffield Historical Society will be partnering with the Connecticut State Library’s Remembering World War One project to hold a Digitization Day. During the event, funded by a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, we will be digitizing old photos, documents, mementos, and other objects related to the war at home and abroad. Area residents and their family and friends are asked to bring in World War One related items and stories that might be tucked away in drawers or trunks. We welcome photos and keepsakes from men and women that will help us tell their stories  from World War One. Digital images of these objects will be made available online and preserved in the Connecticut Digital Archive. The only prerequisite for inclusion in this project is that participants are Connecticut residents and that items are related to World War One.
