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 principal 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 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....

You can pick up a copy of the book at the Information Desk.

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

This program is part of the Gray-Wulff Environmental Series.

The film, A River Between Us, 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.

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.

Come hear from Connecticut’s State Bee Inspector Mark Creighton about how honey bees directly affect the vitality of our agricultural industry, responsible for 33% of the food we eat. Experience the marvel of these social insects and learn why these insects are threatened by extinction.

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.

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 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: Client Privilege [1990] by William Tapply
Boston-based lawyer-sleuth Brady Coyne suspects his old friend Judge Chester Y. Popowski is responsible when a man who had blackmailed the judge is murdered.

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.
