Books on Tap - Brass

RSVP for our Books on Tap discussion at our Meet up page Stratford Bookclub & Social Hub. Don't forget to stop by the library to borrow a copy of the book. We'll get settled, order food/drinks, and catch up with everyone at 7pm on Tuesday, November 27th at The Sitting Duck Tavern. Our book discussion starts at 7:30pm. Cheers!

Join us as we discuss Brass by Xhenet Aliu. It is the story of a waitress at the Betsy Ross Diner, Elsie hopes her nickel-and-dime tips will add up to a new life. Then she meets Bashkim, who is at once both worldly and naïve, a married man who left Albania to chase his dreams—and wound up working as a line cook in Waterbury, Connecticut. Back when the brass mills were still open, this bustling factory town drew one wave of immigrants after another. Now it’s the place they can’t seem to leave. Elsie, herself the granddaughter of Lithuanian immigrants, falls in love quickly, but when she learns that she’s pregnant, Elsie can’t help wondering where Bashkim’s heart really lies, and what he’ll do about the wife he left behind.

Seventeen years later, headstrong and independent Luljeta receives a rejection letter from NYU and her first-ever suspension from school on the same day. Instead of striking out on her own in Manhattan, she’s stuck in Connecticut with her mother, Elsie—a fate she refuses to accept. Wondering if the key to her future is unlocking the secrets of the past, Lulu decides to find out what exactly her mother has been hiding about the father she never knew. As she soon discovers, the truth is closer than she ever imagined.

Told in equally gripping parallel narratives with biting wit and grace, Brass announces a fearless new voice with a timely, tender, and quintessentially American story.

Teen Movie Afternoon - To All the Boys I've Loved Before

Catch the latest films with friends--& snacks!

We're watching To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before (PG-13, 99 minutes) this month. Open to grades 6-12.

Plot: Sixteen-year-old Lara Jean is a romantic. She has had five crushes in her life and written love letters to all of them. Signed, sealed—and undelivered. They were never meant for anyone else’s eyes but her own.  But then the unthinkable happens: her secret letters somehow get mailed. As she learns to deal with her past loves face to face, Lara Jean discovers that something good may come out of these letters after all, if only she has the courage to speak from her heart.

COMING ABOUT: LIFE IN THE BALANCE by Mario Dell'Olio

A mid-life crisis, a sailing adventure, and a rescue at sea, Coming About tells a story of survival and inner-strength through a foundational loving relationship. Coming About is a memoir of Mario and Jim who, at 40, quit their jobs and sell their home in San Francisco to follow their dream. They buy a 50-foot sailboat and move to St. Thomas, Virgin Islands where they discover many quirky facets of adjusting to life on the island as well as its many cultural idiosyncrasies. During the maiden voyage from the US mainland to St. Thomas, they encounter treacherous weather conditions and a series of life-threatening events that lead to a rescue at sea and the destruction of their dreams of retirement in a Caribbean paradise. Battling relentlessly crushing waves and shark-infested waters, their lives hang in the balance. Their struggles are vividly recounted as they search for meaning in the near loss of their lives and the shattering of their dreams.

The former Stratford author will discuss his book, read selected section and autograph copies for sale following the talk. 

Free and open to the public.
