POWerful Costumes: The Evolution of the Super Suit

When you think superheroes, certain images come to mind: Superman’s red and yellow "S" (or is it the Kryptonian symbol of Hope?); Wonder Woman’s red, white, and blue outfit (or is it battle skirt and armor?); and Batman’s black armor and cape (or is it grey and yellow spandex?).

Each character represents something—hope, truth, or justice—which their costumes are meant to express through bright, dramatic colors. But, as these characters change, so do their costumes.

The looks that define these characters now is often quite different than how they were first envisioned.

In honor of the growing multiverse of superheroes, this exhibit shows how some of our favorite superhero costumes have evolved through the years.

Holistic Veterinary Medicine with Dr. Stephen Tobin

Dr. Tobin is a holistic veterinarian who treats with homeopathy, herbs, and nutrition, as well as conventional medicine.  He received a BS in Biochemistry from Cornell University, an MS in Education from SUNY Cortland, and a Dr.Med.Vet. from Ludwig Maximillian Universitat in Munich, Germany.  Dr. Tobin has been a member, and past president, of the American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association, as well as a member of the Academy of Veterinary Homeopathy and the Veterinary Botanical Medical Association.

In holistic medicine, we try to look at all aspects of the patient’s life, with the aim of supporting a healthy lifestyle and healing damaged and sick areas.  This should start with a proper diet to strengthen and maintain the individual.  We also want to strengthen the immune system and prevent disease, and heal the body of those injuries and diseases that do strike.  We will discuss diet, immunity, and healing, of both acute and chronic illness.

Book Discussion - City of Angels - Devil in a Blue Dress

City of Angels

The state of California looms large in the history of mysteries. Dashiell Hammett’s The Maltese Falcon, set in San Francisco, and Raymond Chandler’s The Big Sleep, set in Los Angeles, essentially began the “hard–boiled” tradition of American mysteries. This spring, we’ll concentrate on mysteries set in L.A., but who knows? We may return to the Golden State again…  

April 10:  The Big Sleep (1939) – Raymond Chandler  
May 8:  Devil in a Blue Dress (1990) – Walter Mosley
June 12:  LA Requiem (1999) – Robert Crais

City of Angels

The state of California looms large in the history of mysteries. Dashiell Hammett’s The Maltese Falcon, set in San Francisco, and Raymond Chandler’s The Big Sleep, set in Los Angeles, essentially began the “hard–boiled” tradition of American mysteries.

City of Angels

The state of California looms large in the history of mysteries. Dashiell Hammett’s The Maltese Falcon, set in San Francisco, and Raymond Chandler’s The Big Sleep, set in Los Angeles, essentially began the “hard–boiled” tradition of American mysteries. This spring, we’ll concentrate on mysteries set in L.A., but who knows? We may return to the Golden State again…   

 

April 10:  The Big Sleep (1939) – Raymond Chandler 

May 8:  Devil in a Blue Dress (1990) – Walter Mosley

June 12:  LA Requiem (1999) – Robert Crais 

   

 

June 12:  LA Requiem (1999) – Robert Crais    

 

Private investigator Joe Pike learns that his ex-lover, Karen Garcia, has been murdered. Karen's powerful father asks Pike and his partner, Elvis Cole, to keep an eye on the LAPD as they search for his daughter's killer. This case threatens to destroy Pike and Cole's twelve-year friendship — and their lives

Roundtable: Programing for Adults with Disabilities

Are you looking for or do you have ideas about programs for adults with disabilities? Do you know someone that would benefit from specialized programing focused on their needs?

The Southington Public Library, in collaboration with the Southington Parks and Recreation Department, The ARC of Southington, and the Wallingford Parks and Recreation Department, is holding a roundtable to discuss the need for adult adaptive programing in our area. The objective of this discussion is to identify what resources are lacking as far as adults with disabilities are concerned.

Because services typically end when a child turns eighteen, the need for adult programing is crucial to continue building social, emotional and life skills. Is there a need for more social engagement? Life skills training? Emotional support? How can we address this as a community with responsible, quality activities designed to enhance the lives of the disabled? The goal of this panel is to expand regional adaptive program choices specific to adults. By combining resources we can serve a wider range of people and offer more programing than as individual towns.
