All teens and adults welcome at this book discussion where we discuss Young Adult Literature. In May we will be discussing "X" a novel by Ilyasah Shabazz, daughter of Malcolm X, with Kekla Magoon.  Lauren Rumi moderates.  Copies of the book are available at the Information Desk.  

Malcolm Little's parents have always told him that he can achieve anything, but from what he can tell, that's nothing but a pack of lies.  His father has been murdered, his mother has been taken away, and his dreams of becoming a lawyer have gotten him laughed out of school. Based on the actual events of Malcolm X's life, this novel sheds new light on the formative years of the human-rights leader whose words and actions shook the world.

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

Join us for an illustrated lecture presenting highlights from the new book, The Traprock Landscapes of New England: Environment, History, and Culture by Peter LeTourneau, Ph.D. and Robert Pagini.

Born and raised in Meriden, Robert Pagini and Dr. LeTourneau were inspired from an early age by the spectacular landscapes of the local region. Once called "the boldest and most beautiful" landscapes of New England, thousands of visitors, including scientists, writers, artists, and landscape tourists, flocked to the traprock hills for inspiration. Two of the most important American landscape paintings, Thomas Cole's "Oxbow" and "West Rock" by Frederic Church, feature Connecticut Valley landscapes. The traprock hills surrounding Wallingford played a key role in early scientific discoveries and the development of landscape tourism. Nearby Hubbard Park, designed by the firm founded by Frederick Law Olmstead was praised as one of the finest municipal parks of its time. The open space environments and clean water supplied by the traprock hills comprise critical natural resources for the region. Dr. LeTourneau will present interesting facts, historic images, and Mr. Pagini's beautiful photographs of Wallingford and the nearby areas in the Connecticut Valley.

Interpreter of Maladies by Jhumpa Lahiri

In this Pulitzer Prize-winning collection of nine short stories, the characters navigate between the Indian traditions of their birth or heritage and the American customs of their new world. The men and women who populate these elegant and touching stories share the universal experience of having grown up, left home, fallen in or out of love and learned what it means to be a foreigner, even within one's own family. Lahiri's observations are damningly accurate, and her bittersweet stories are unhampered by nostalgia.
