Dog with Sunglasses-copyrighted image/Fotolia.comIn honor of National Dog Day, the Children’s Department at the Welles-Turner Library will hold a special storytime featuring kids' best friends.

A craft table will be set out after storytime with a simple craft for little ones. Older children may make a dog tug-toy for their own pet or to donate to an animal shelter. The craft table will be open until 4:30pm. While visiting, enjoy a great dog story or read more about your favorite breed. No registration is needed.

Eligible Book Cover

Pride and Prejudice Book CoverTwo books, two centuries, two familes and sisters
Come share a lively discussion with us! This month's selections are Eligible by Curtis Sittenfeld and Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen. Copies of the books will be available for checkout at the front desk prior to the discussion date on a first-come, first-served basis. No registration necessary.

Eligible: “Returning with her sister, Jane, to their Ohio hometown when their father falls ill, New York magazine editor Lizzy Bennett confronts challenges in the form of her younger sisters’ football fangirl antics, a creepy cousin’s unwanted attentions and the infuriating standoffish manners of a handsome neurosurgeon.” – provided by publisher

Pride and Prejudice: Elizabeth Bennet is the perfect Austen heroine: intelligent, generous, sensible, incapable of jealousy or any other major sin. That makes her sound like an insufferable goody-goody, but the truth is she's a completely hip character, who if provoked is not above skewering her antagonist with a piece of her exceptionally sharp – but always polite –18th century wit. The point is, you spend the whole book absolutely fixated on the critical question: will Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy hook up?

    Contact: Reference Department   860-652-7720   
   

Mendelssohn-copyright nickolae/Fotolia.comMozart-copyrightnickolae/Fotolia.comThe name Mozart is synonymous with the word prodigy. He certainly displayed incredible talent as a composer, pianist and violinist at a ridiculously young age. Mendelssohn is usually ignored in the conversation about prodigies, but he was no less extraordinary and topped Mozart in at least one way. He was composing masterpieces as a teenager, several years before Mozart wrote anything comparable. Jeffrey Engel will compare the two youngsters and let you decide who was the more remarkable. Seating is limited, so reservations are required online or at the library’s Reference Desk at 860-652-7720 starting August 31.

Steve Liskow-photo used with permissionEven though many agents and editors want memorable characters who drive a series, they aren’t enough to save a weak story. Award-winning mystery writer Steve Liskow leads workshop participants through the process of developing an idea into a workable premise that can generate a full story. From there, participants will examine how to build a plot to keep readers asking questions and turning pages to a powerful ending! Seating is limited, so reservations are required starting September 26, online or at the library’s Reference Desk at 860-652-7720.

Liskow taught English for 33 years in local schools until his retirement and now serves as a panelist and mentor for both Mystery Writers of America and Sisters in Crime. He is also a member of International Thriller Writers. He has been a finalist for the Shamus Award from the Private Eye Writers of America and the Edgar Award from Mystery Writers of America. His stories have also won the Black Orchid Novella Award and Honorable Mention for the Al Blanchard Story Award (twice). Nowhere Man, released in April, is his tenth novel.

Robin Hoffman and Jodi Stiffelman of ArtScapadesSnap the Whip by Winslow HomerAs the camera became more available to the public during the mid 1800s, photography began to affect the art world. With the Hudson River School as a starting point, ArtScapades will show us how artists incorporated the use of photography in their artistic process, enabling them to create ever more dramatic paintings of a young growing America and its people, including the country’s expansion westward. ArtScapades presents three quintessential artists, Albert Bierstadt, Winslow Homer and Thomas Eakins. Seating is limited, so registration is requested beginning August 16, online or at the Reference Desk at 860-652-7720.

Come share a lively discussion with us. This month's selection is Station Eleven by Emily St. John Mandel. Copies of the book will be available for checkout at the front desk one month prior to the discussion date on a first-come, first-served basis. No registration necessary.

“An audacious, darkly glittering novel about art, fame, and ambition set in the eerie days of civilization’s collapse, from the author of three highly acclaimed previous novels. One snowy night a famous Hollywood actor slumps over and dies onstage during a production of King Lear. Hours later, the world as we know it begins to dissolve … Sometimes terrifying, sometimes tender, Station Eleven tells a story about the relationships that sustain us, the ephemeral nature of fame, and the beauty of the world as we know it.” – provided by publisher
