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 Mistress of the Art of Death by Ariana Franklin.
In medieval Cambridge, England, Adelia, a female forensics expert, is summoned by King Henry II to investigate a series of gruesome murders that has wrongly implicated the Jewish population, yielding even more tragic results. As Adelia's investigation takes her behind the closed doors of the country's churches, the killer prepares to strike again.

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

Olive Kitteridge by Elizabeth Strout
The larger-than-life world of Olive Kitteridge, a retired school teacher and unofficial town crier in a small coastal town in Maine, is revealed in a series of luminous stories that explore her diverse roles in many lives, including a lounge singer haunted by a past love, a young man grieving over his lost mother, her stoic husband, and her own resentful son.

Discussion moderated by Librarian Cindy Haiken. Cindy is a lifelong New Yorker who moved to Connecticut with her husband when her youngest daughter left for college. A former practicing tax lawyer, Cindy reads a minimum of five books each week across a broad range of genres, from literary fiction to mysteries to histories and biographies, with the occasional romance or fantasy novel thrown in for fun. Cindy also spends hours flipping through cookbooks looking for the right recipe for the mood of the day. Cindy loves to talk about favorite books and authors and learning about the reading interest of her friends and colleagues.

misc_none 6:30 PM  -  8:30 PM Environmental Film Presentation: A River Between Us Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

From the website http://www.ariverbetweenus.com/

This film documents the largest river restoration project in American history. Nearly 300 miles in length, flowing from southern Oregon to northern California, the vast communities of the Klamath River have been feuding over its water for generations, and as a result, bad blood has polluted their river and their relationships equally.

A River Between Us examines the complicated history of this conflict: how anger, fear and distrust have undermined the Klamath’s communities for decades. Balancing the sheer beauty of the river’s surface with its underlying ills of injustice and inequality, the film focuses on the personal stories of a group of individuals who finally chose to put the past behind them and came together to create a historic water rights compromise for the good of all.

In 1987, Congress declared March as National Women’s History Month.  A special Presidential Proclamation is issued every year which honors the extraordinary achievements of American women.  Some of Connecticut’s most remarkable women overcame obstacles and grew into confident leaders.  Even extraordinary and accomplished people have these same concerns. Join us for an interactive multi-media program by the Connecticut Women’s Hall of Fame and be inspired by the powerful stories of women like Marian Anderson who dealt with racial discrimination, Sophie Tucker who struggled with body image, Dorrit Hoffleit whose own mother considered her dumb because of her gender, and others across many fields.

The Connecticut Women’s Hall of Fame is an educational outreach organization whose mission is to honor publicly the achievement of Connecticut women, preserve their stories, educate the public and inspire the continued achievements of women and girls.

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
    Contact: Carole Shmurak     cshmurak@gmail.com
   

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.

    Contact: Carole Shmurak     cshmurak@gmail.com
   

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.

The ABC's esperience can take place in the living room, kitchen, and bedroom while the family is together. It travels well as the busy family is in the car while grocer shopping, running errans, and off visitin grelatives. Technology is going to be with us, but the ABC's never get old and can be fun. There will be a raffle for books, too!

    Contact: Carole Shmurak     cshmurak@gmail.com
   

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.
