misc_none 2:00 PM Isabella Waters Music Series: Jeff Snow Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
    Contact: Friends of the Library   860-652-7728   
   

Come hear the music of Scotland, Ireland and England with Jeff Snow on Sunday, March 22 at 2pm in the library's Friends Room. Jeff Snow is a talented multi-instrumentalist who shares the music - and the stories behind the music - of Scotland, Ireland and England. Much of the history of these lands was preserved in song. Jeff’s music has been described as “quiet and relaxing” but, once in a while, he breaks out, and the “foot stomping” begins. Enjoy singing, laughing, lots of smiles and, perhaps, a few tears as we travel through time. Come see Jeff play the guitar, autoharp and bouzouki and percussion as he entertains all!

The music series is presented by the Friends of the Welles-Turner Library in memory of Isabella Waters, who was a generous supporter of the library.

misc_none 6:30 PM The Assassination of President Lincoln and the End of an Era Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
    Contact: Reference Department   860-652-7720   
   

President Abraham LincolnDavid Koch, Assistant Professor of History at Housatonic Community College, examines this date in history: On April 14, 1865, an assassin’s bullet put an end to the life of Abraham Lincoln. Many believe that the history of post-war America might have been quite different, had he lived. Yet the assassination of President Lincoln is also considered by many to be the end of an era in American history, not only closing out the civil war, but ushering in a new era of industrial – instead of agricultural – wealth and ending true independence for Americans from their national government. This talk will focus on the killing of the president, but will also examine the slow close of the antebellum era, and on the end of the civil war itself. Registration required and begins March 17 online or at the Reference Desk at 860-652-7720.
