lib_sherlock_holmes.GIF 3:00 PM  -  4:15 PM Mystery Book Club Series: The Time Machine Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

The Time Machine is a science fiction novel by H.G. Wells, published in 1895. The term "time machine" was coined by Wells, who is generally credited with popularizing the concept of time travel. This spring, our time machine will be the detective novel as we travel through nearly 2,000 years of crime and detection.

This month's discussion will focus on Heresy by S.J. Parris.
When fugitive Italian monk Giordano Bruno—philosopher, magician, and heretical scientist—arrives in London, he’s only one step ahead of the Inquisition. An undercover mission for Queen Elizabeth I and her spymaster provides added protection. Officially, Bruno is to take part in a debate on the Copernican theory of the universe at Oxford University; unofficially, he is to find out whatever he can about a Catholic plot to overthrow the queen. But when his mission is dramatically thrown off course by a series of grisly deaths and the charms of a mysterious but beautiful young woman, he realizes that somewhere within Oxford’s private chambers lurks a brutal killer. . .

This Book Club is moderated by Carole Shmurak, author of 11 books and Professor Emerita at Central Connecticut State University.

Most people know the name Schubert, but very little else about his life. Imagine that he died at the age of 31 and yet still managed to compose more than 1,400 works (all during a period of just 20 years!). Of those 1,400+, he heard public performances of less than 70! Without question, during his lifetime, he was the least successful composer in history. Nevertheless, today he is considered to be one of the immortals.

Jeffrey Engel, adjunct professor at Northwestern Community College, will detail the last year of Schubert's life when he was extremely ill and yet was producing masterpiece upon masterpiece.

Local maker Tim Sway will introduce you to the mindset and methods of upcycling. You will see and learn about his creations from reclaimed materials and have the opportunity to brainstorm how to use discarded items in new ways. Adults and teens welcome.

Tim Sway makes “worthless things priceless” by creating one-of-a-kind furniture, musical instruments and more from things that have been thrown away. The trendier term is “reclaimed” or “upcycled” materials. Tim brings awareness to wastefulness and excessive consumerism while encouraging others to live local, Earth-friendly lives. He has a podcast and YouTube channel where he spreads the message and also encourages people to try making things on their own. He was a prinicpal on FYI Networks’s television show “Trashformers” and worked extensively as a touring and performing musician. He lives in Wallingford and “Tim Sway Perspectives World Headquarters” is located in an old chicken barn in Meriden.

This program is sponsored by Jean Anderson in memory of a lifelong upcycler, Alan McIlveen.

lib_sherlock_holmes.GIF 3:00 PM  -  4:15 PM Mystery Book Club Series: The Time Machine Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

The Time Machine is a science fiction novel by H.G. Wells, published in 1895. The term "time machine" was coined by Wells, who is generally credited with popularizing the concept of time travel. This spring, our time machine will be the detective novel as we travel through nearly 2,000 years of crime and detection.

This month's discussion will focus on The Face of a Stranger by Anne Perry.
His name, they tell him, is William Monk, and he is a London police detective. But the accident that felled him has left him with only half a life; his memory and his entire past have vanished. As he tries to hide the truth, Monk returns to work and is assigned to investigate the brutal murder of a Crimean War hero and man about town. Which makes Monk's efforts doubly difficult, since he's forgotten his professional skills along with everything else....

This Book Club is moderated by Carole Shmurak, author of 11 books and Professor Emerita at Central Connecticut State University.

Participants are also encouraged to bring their own reclaimed materials from home to add volume to their pianos. A milk jug? Cardboard box? Tennis racket? What do you think would sound good?

Tim Sway makes “worthless things priceless” by creating one-of-a-kind furniture, musical instruments and more from things that have been thrown away. The trendier term is “reclaimed” or “upcycled” materials. Tim brings awareness to wastefulness and excessive consumerism while encouraging others to live local, Earth-friendly lives. He has a podcast and YouTube channel where he spreads the message and also encourages people to try making things on their own. He was a prinicpal on FYI Networks’s television show “Trashformers” and worked extensively as a touring and performing musician. He lives in Wallingford and “Tim Sway Perspectives World Headquarters” is located in an old chicken barn in Meriden.

The Time Machine is a science fiction novel by H.G. Wells, published in 1895. The term "time machine" was coined by Wells, who is generally credited with popularizing the concept of time travel. This spring, our time machine will be the detective novel as we travel through nearly 2,000 years of crime and detection.

This month's discussion will focus on The Damascened Blade by Barbara Cleverly.
Scotland Yard Detective Joe Sandilands has been given the unenviable mission of guarding a spirited young American woman with far more wealth than sense. Lily Coblenz, accompanied by a cunning businessman, a woman doctor, and two quarreling military strategists, expects the adventure of a lifetime when she arrives at a remote British outpost. But when the son of a Pathan tribal leader is discovered dead, Sandilands, a decorated war veteran, knows that his mission to protect Lily has suddenly taken a startling new turn that may bring them all to the brink of war. Now, from the far reaches of an empire, Joe Sandilands must separate lies from truths, innocents from killers—and find the one person with a desperate motive for murder and the key to India’s destiny.

This Book Club is moderated by Carole Shmurak, author of 11 books and Professor Emerita at Central Connecticut State University.

"The first thing we do, let's kill all the lawyers" is one of the few memorable lines from Shakespeare's Henry the Sixth, Part 2, uttered by Dick the butcher, a character no one remembers. In this series, we won't kill any lawyers, but we'll meet a few of them who act as detectives in some highly regarded series.

This month: The Deadhouse  [2001] by Linda Fairstein
Assistant D.A. Alexandra Cooper becomes involved in the investigation into the murder of Manhattan political science professor Lola Dakota, a crime that may have ties to the disappearance of a student eight years before and whose only clue lies in "The Deadhouse," the Roosevelt Island site where smallpox patients were sent to die in the nineteenth century.

This month: Open and Shut [2002] by David Rosenfelt
Whether dueling with new forensics or the local old boys' network, irreverent defense attorney Andy Carpenter always leaves them awed with his biting wit and winning fourth-quarter game plan. But Andy prefers the company of his best friend, Tara, to the people he encounters in the courtroom. Tara, a golden retriever, is clearly smarter than half the lawyers who clog the courts of Passaic County. However, just as it seems Andy has everything figured out, his dad, New Jersey's legendary ex-D.A., drops dead in front of him at a game in Yankee Stadium. The shocks pile on as he discovers his dad left him with two unexpected legacies: a fortune of $22 million that Andy never knew existed . . . and a murder case with enough racial tinder to burn down City Hall. Struggling to serve justice and bring honor to his father, Andy must dig up some explosive political skeletons-and an astonishing family secret that can close his case (and his mouth) for good.
