The Nightingale tells the story of two sisters, separated by years and experience, by ideals, passion and circumstance.  Each embarks on her own dangerous path toward survival, love, and freedom in German-occupied, war-torn France.  This is a heartbreakingly beautiful novel that celebrates the resilience of the human spirit and the durability of women.

Lunchtime Book Discussions are held on the last Wednesday of the month and are free and open to the public. Multiple copies of the book will be available at the circulation desk.

   12:30 PM  -  1:30 PM June Lunchtime Book Discussion  
    Contact: Reference Desk   203-736-1482   
   

June's featured book is: Small Great Things by Jodi Picoult.

The novel is based on the true story of a labor and delivery nurse who was prohibited from caring for a newborn because the father requested that no African-American nurses tend to his baby. A medical crisis results in the infant's death and a murder charge against a black nurse named Ruth Jefferson.  Jodi Picoult tackles race, privilege, prejudice, justice, and compassion—and doesn’t offer easy answers. Using the narratives of Ruth, the baby’s father, and the female public defender who takes Ruth’s case, Picoult examines multiple facets of racism. Small Great Things is an important and thought-provoking novel about power and prejudice that deserves to be read, digested, and shared with others.

Viola Davis and Julia Roberts will star in the soon to be released movie version.

Multiple copies are available at the main circulation desk.

Lunchtime Book Discussions are held the last Wednesday of the month and are free and open to the public.  No registration is required.

   6:30 PM  -  7:30 PM Author Talk about the history of Connecticut Rock 'N Roll  
    Contact: Reference Desk   203-736-1482   
   

Author Tony Renzoni leads a trip through 'Connecticut Rock 'n' Roll: A History' over the years. Long neglected in the annals of American music, the Nutmeg State’s influence on the history of rock ’n’ roll deserves recognition. Connecticut’s musical highlights include the beautiful harmonies of New Haven’s Five Satins, Gene Pitney’s rise to fame, Stamford’s the Fifth Estate and notable rockers such as Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth, Rivers Cuomo of Weezer and Saturday Night Live Band’s Christine Ohlman. Rock Hall of Famers include Tina Weymouth and Chris Frantz of the Talking Heads and Dennis Dunaway of the Alice Cooper Band. Some events became legend, like Jimi Hendrix’s spellbinding performance at Yale’s Woolsey Hall, Jim Morrison’s onstage arrest at the New Haven Arena and teenage Bob Dylan’s appearance at Branford’s Indian Neck Folk Festival.

With in-depth interviews as well as rare, never- before-seen photos, author Tony Renzoni leads a sonic trip that captures the spirit and zenith of the local scene in Connecticut Rock ’N’ Roll: A History. 

A graduate of Sacred Heart University, Tony Renzoni is a rock ’n’ roll enthusiast and an avid collector of rock memorabilia, amassing a record collection of over ten thousand vinyl records. He has authored over one thousand weekly guest columns published in the Connecticut Post newspaper and website. During a thirty-eight-year career with the federal government, many as a district manager in Fairfield County, Tony was a recipient of more than forty awards, including his agency’s highest honor award. 

Copies of Connecticut Rock ’N’ Roll: A History will be available for purchase/signing for $23.39 at the event. Space is limited so registration is required beginning June 11 online or by calling the Reference Desk at 203-736-1482.
