Teen Event - Foreign Films and Food

Teens in grades 7-12 are invited to attend the Foreign Films and Food series. Each month we will watch a film from a different country and try traditional dishes and snacks from that country.

This month we will watch the award-winning 2007 French/Iranian movie Persepolis.

Marjane is precocious and outspoken young Iranian girl who was nine years old during the Islamic Revolution when the fundamentalists first take power--forcing the veil on women and imprisoning thousands. She cleverly outsmarts the "social guardians" and discovers punk, ABBA and Iron Maiden, while living with the terror of government persecution and the Iran/Iraq war. Then Marjane's journey moves on to Austria where, as a teenager, her parents send her to school in fear for her safety and, she has to combat being equated with the religious fundamentalism and extremism she fled her country to escape. Marjane eventually gains acceptance in Europe, but finds herself alone and horribly homesick, and returns to Iran to be with her family, although it means putting on the veil and living in a tyrannical society. After a difficult period of adjustment, she enters art school and marries, continuing to speak out against the hypocrisy she witnesses. At age 24, she realizes that while she is deeply Iranian, she cannot live in Iran. She then makes the heartbreaking decision to leave her homeland for France, optimistic about her future, shaped indelibly by her past.

Rated PG-13.  1 hr 36 min.

Movie starts promptly at 3:00 p.m.

Space is limited so register early.

Sydney Sherman: You Are Not Alone

Acclaimed Connecticut paranormal author, Sydney Sherman, continues her successful book tour throughout New England, sharing her life experiences and book,  You Are Not Alone: Our Loved Ones Are Here…You’re Just Not Listening.  Ms. Sherman encourages all of us to consider the possibilities of connecting to the other side. 

Sherman’s book outlines her passage from confusion to the acceptance of her relationships with the many spirits who inhabit her everyday world.  The book goes beyond a simple biographical story of a medium.  Frustrated with media sensationalism and misinformation about the afterlife and contact with spiritual entities, Sydney decided to “come out” with her secret. 

Sydney Sherman believes we are meant to share the advantage of contact with our “peeps.” With her book and speaking engagements, thousands have learned how to connect and benefit from the guidance and protection of their own loved ones. 

Sherman has intrigued audiences with her personal knowledge of energy, spirits and the afterlife and has been featured many times in the media. For anyone who has ever wondered about the paranormal, Sydney Sherman and her book are a must.

Out Of This World Book Club: Good Omens

Do you enjoy reading science fiction, fantasy, and the like? Are you always looking to talk to people about what you've read? Join us for our inaugural meeting of Southington Library's new book club, Out of This World. This month we will discuss Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett's comedic fantasy Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch

From the book jacket:

According to The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch (the world's only completely accurate book of prophecies, written in 1655, before she exploded), the world will end on a Saturday. Next Saturday, in fact. Just before dinner.

So the armies of Good and Evil are amassing, Atlantis is rising, frogs are falling, tempers are flaring. Everything appears to be going according to Divine Plan. Except a somewhat fussy angel and a fast-living demon—both of whom have lived amongst Earth's mortals since The Beginning and have grown rather fond of the lifestyle—are not actually looking forward to the coming Rapture.

And someone seems to have misplaced the Antichrist . . .

Copies of Good Omens will be available at the Circulation Desk beginning April 3. The Out of This World Book Club meets at 7 P.M. on the first Wednesday of every month in the library's community room on the lower level. All interested adults and teens are welcome to attend, but registration is required. Please contact Lynn Gardner, 860-628-0947 x5, if you have questions.

Mystery Book Group: Crime-Solving Clergy, with Carole Shmurak

Popular presenter Carole Shmurak returns to the Southington Public Library with a three-part mystery series featuring crime-solving clergy.

Father Brown by G.K. Chesterton was probably the first clergyman-detective (1911), but there have been many since then. Most clerical mysteries deal with issues such as mercy vs. justice, forgiveness vs. punishment, and faith vs. reason. The following books are from some of the more popular series..

April 9: Ash Wednesday by Ralph McInerny

May 7: Friday the Rabbi Slept Late by Harry Kemelman
David Small, the new rabbi in a small Massachusetts town, is a shy young man who is often at odds with his congregation. To add to his problems, a dead body is found in the temple parking lot and the rabbi is on the shortlist of murder suspects.  In order to exonerate himself, he must use his analytic skills and rabbinic wisdom and collaborate with the Irish-Catholic police chief to find the killer.

June 11: In the Bleak Midwinter by Julia Spencer-Fleming
In an upstate New York town, newly ordained Clare Fergusson - the first female priest of the local Episcopal church - finds that her forthright manner gets a chilly reception from some members of her congregation. When a newborn baby is abandoned on the church stairs and a young mother is brutally murdered, Clare needs all her faith, tenacity, and courage to find her way through the town’s secrets, and to resist the growing attraction between her and the married police chief.

Registration for this program is required and will open on Tuesday April 9th. Please register at southingtonlibrary.org by clicking on the Calendar of Events or call the Reference Desk at 860.628.0947 option 5. May’s book selection will be available to pick up at the circulation desk beginning April 9th.

Out Of This World Book Club: All Systems Red

The Out of This World Book Club meets to discuss Martha Wells' award-winning novella, All Systems Red, the first volume in The Murderbot Diaries.

From the publisher:

A murderous android discovers itself in All Systems Red, a tense science fiction adventure by Martha Wells that blends HBO's Westworld with Iain M. Banks' Culture books.

In a corporate-dominated spacefaring future, planetary missions must be approved and supplied by the Company. Exploratory teams are accompanied by Company-supplied security androids, for their own safety.

But in a society where contracts are awarded to the lowest bidder, safety isn't a primary concern.

The Out of This World Book Club meets at 7 P.M. on the first Wednesday of every month in the library's community room on the lower level. All interested adults and older teens are welcome to attend. Copies of All Systems Red are available at the Circulation Desk.

Mystery Book Group: Crime-Solving Clergy, with Carole Shmurak

Popular presenter Carole Shmurak returns to the Southington Public Library with a three-part mystery series featuring crime-solving clergy.

Father Brown by G.K. Chesterton was probably the first clergyman-detective (1911), but there have been many since then. Most clerical mysteries deal with issues such as mercy vs. justice, forgiveness vs. punishment, and faith vs. reason.

April 9: Ash Wednesday by Ralph McInerny

May 7Friday the Rabbi Slept Late by Harry Kemelman

June 11: In the Bleak Midwinter by Julia Spencer-Fleming
In an upstate New York town, newly ordained Clare Fergusson - the first female priest of the local Episcopal church - finds that her forthright manner gets a chilly reception from some members of her congregation. When a newborn baby is abandoned on the church stairs and a young mother is brutally murdered, Clare needs all her faith, tenacity, and courage to find her way through the town’s secrets, and to resist the growing attraction between her and the married police chief.

Registration for this program is required and will open on Tuesday May 7th. Please register at southingtonlibrary.org by clicking on the Calendar of Events or call the Reference Desk at 860.628.0947 option 5. June’s book selection will be available to pick up at the circulation desk beginning May 7th.
