New Book Conversation with Steven Slosberg

Join us for a conversation with local columnist and author Steven Slosberg about his newest book, Columnist: 45 Years of Having a Say. We will gather upstairs in the Spicer Reading Room in front of the fireplace.

About the Book:
"Slosberg quickly made a name for himself for literary and perceptive work... Slosberg's name became a household word among the Day's readers who either admired or were repulsed by his work."
"Slosberg's columns, which were often crafted with the tightness and symmetry of poems, would bring the newspaper both controversy and distinction in the next decade." 
- Gregory N. Stone in his book The Day Paper: The Story of One of America's Last Independent Newspapers. Published in 2000 by The Day Publishing Co., New London, Conn. 

About the Author:
Steven Slosberg lives in Stonington and worked as a reporter, editorial writer, copy editor, and columnist for The Day in New London, Conn., for more than three decades and lately has been writing weekly stories for The Westerly Sun in Westerly, R.I. During his career, he won the Horace Greeley Award for outstanding journalistic service from the New England Press Association, the Stephen A.

Join us for a conversation with local columnist and author Steven Slosberg about his newest book, Columnist: 45 Years of Having a Say. We will gather upstairs in the Spicer Reading Room in front of the fireplace.

About the Book:
"Slosberg quickly made a name for himself for literary and perceptive work... Slosberg's name became a household word among the Day's readers who either admired or were repulsed by his work."
"Slosberg's columns, which were often crafted with the tightness and symmetry of poems, would bring the newspaper both controversy and distinction in the next decade." 
- Gregory N. Stone in his book The Day Paper: The Story of One of America's Last Independent Newspapers. Published in 2000 by The Day Publishing Co., New London, Conn.

The True Depths of the Plastic Crisis: Thicker Than Water

Plastic is everywhere--it's in our food containers, keyboards, glasses, even our toothbrushes. It's lightweight, versatile, and so cheap that we often forget how much it permeates our lives. But our relationship with plastic is not a healthy one, and our worldwide reliance on it is affecting our planet and our bodies.

Author Erica Cirino has traveled across land and sea to reveal the true depths of the plastic crisis, which she details in her recent book, Thicker Than Water: The Quest for Solutions to the Plastic Crisis (published by Island Press, in October 2021). In Thicker Than Water, Erica documents plastic across ecosystems and elements; shares stories from the primarily Black, brown, Indigenous and rural communities that are disproportionally harmed by industrial pollution globally; and uncovers strategies that work to prevent plastic from causing further devastation to our planet and its inhabitants.

Erica also works as a science writer and artist exploring the intersection of the human and nonhuman worlds. Her widely published photojournalistic works depict the numerous ways people connect to nature—wild creatures in particular—and shape planet Earth. She lives with her rescued street dog, Sabi, on and between two shores, Long Island and Connecticut.

Registration is required to attend this program. Space is limited. Masks must be worn at all times. Please notify the Library if you register and are unable to attend.
