Book Discussion - City of Angels - LA Requiem

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.

Please do not bring an item that is worth $25.00 or more. This insures that everything is approximately the same price range

Crafters Night Out-Celebrate You Collage

This collage is dedicated to you and only you. It will be a visual celebration of your life. As busy adults we tend to forget about our own interests. This project forces you to think about yourself. This will encourage you to reflect on your past and present, and even your future. It will be an interesting study of who you are.

You will visually see how you have evolved from a child to an adult. Have fun with this. It’s about reflection and creativity.

For further details and a list of ideas to include on this project, email chubete@southington.org after confirmation of registration.

This collage is dedicated to you and only you. It will be a visual celebration of your life. As busy adults we tend to forget about our own interests. This project forces you to think about yourself. This will encourage you to reflect on your past and present, and even your future. It will be an interesting study of who you are.

You will visually see how you have evolved from a child to an adult. Have fun with this. It’s about reflection and creativity.

For further details and a list of ideas to include on this project, email chubete@southington.org after confirmation of registration.

Cooking the Books: Small Plates

Do you enjoy browsing through cookbooks and trying new recipes? Do you enjoy tasting new dishes? Then grab your apron and join Southington Library's new cookbook club, Cooking the Books!  Check out a Southington Library cookbook on January's topic, Small Plates: Snacks, Appetizers, & Tapas, and then spend some time experimenting  with it. Come to the program on the date posted, ready to share a dish and discuss your experience. If your experiments yield disastrous results, that's okay! Bring it along, anyway!

Participants are encouraged to go green – please bring your own plate, utensils, and serving spoon. Dishes should arrive ready to eat as there is no kitchen facility on hand. Please also bring 16 copies of your recipe to share. Everyone who attends will receive a binder to store their cookbook club recipes.
