Martin Podskoch will present a powerpoint talk on his new book Connecticut Civilian Conservation Corps Camps: History, Memories & Legacy of the CCC. Copies of the book are available for sale at the library now and will also be available to purchase at the talk. You may have your book autographed by the author at that time.

The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) was created under President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s “New Deal” to relieve the poverty and unemployment of the Great Depression. Camps were set up in many Connecticut towns, state parks and forests, including Black Rock State Park in Watertown and one in West Cornwall. Workers built trails, roads, campsites and dams, stocked fish, built and maintained fire tower observers’ cabins and telephone lines, fought fires and planted millions of trees.

lib_book3 7:00 PM Book Discussion Group     Tell a Friend
    Contact:    860-283-4339   
   

You’re invited to join our discussion of Everyman by Philip Roth.

Philip Roth's novel is a candidly intimate yet universal story of loss, regret, and stoicism. The bestselling author of The Plot Against America now turns his attention from one family's harrowing encounter with history to one man's lifelong skirmish with mortality.

The fate of Roth's everyman is traced from his first shocking confrontation with death on the idyllic beaches of his childhood summers, through the family trials and professional achievements of his vigorous adulthood, and into his old age, when he is torn by observing the deterioration of his contemporaries and stalked by his own physical woes.

The terrain of this powerful novel is the human body. Its subject is the common experience that terrifies us all.

Copies of the novel will be available at the library to borrow three weeks prior to the program date. Please call or visit the library to reserve your copy. The book discussion group meets the second Wednesday of every month at 7 pm in the library.

    Contact:    860-283-4339   
   
Emily McAdam, a graduate student in the Public History program at Central Connecticut State University, will present "The Needs of the Time: Thomaston, Connecticut in World War I," to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the United States' entry into World War I, and keep the sacrifices in everyone's memory. The program features photographs from the collections of the Thomaston Historical Society. In addition to discussing the broader context of the period, she will talk about how Thomaston's industry in times of peace poised the town to make significant contributions in times of war, which, in turn, shaped its society and culture. 
    
McAdam's research on local history also includes: 20th century Thomaston industry; New Britain industry, education, and architecture; the Hopkins land on Lake Waramaug; and the Bakerville Library. She teaches United States History and Global Studies at Litchfield High School.

Emily is a native of Thomaston. She lives in New Hartford with her husband, Seth Newton, and daughter, Eloise.
 
The program at the library is being presented in conjunction with the Thomaston Historical Society and the Thomaston Historical Commission. It's free, but registration is suggested. Please stop by the library or call to register.

You’re invited to join our discussion of The Dinner by Herman Koch.

A summer's evening in Amsterdam and two couples meet at a fashionable restaurant. Between mouthfuls of food and over the delicate scraping of cutlery, the conversation remains a gentle hum of politeness - the banality of work, the triviality of holidays.

But the empty words hide a terrible conflict. Each couple has a fifteen-year-old son. Together, the boys have committed a horrifying act, caught on camera, and their grainy images have been beamed into living rooms across the nation; despite a police manhunt, the boys remain unidentified - by everyone except their parents. As the dinner reaches its culinary climax, the conversation finally touches on their children and, as civility and friendship disintegrate, each couple shows just how far they are prepared to go to protect those they love.

Copies of the novel will be available at the library to borrow three weeks prior to the program date. Please call or visit the library to reserve your copy. The book discussion group meets the second Wednesday of every month at 7 pm in the library.
