Eagles in Connecticut: Return of an Icon
6:30 PM

Bald eagles were once in such dire trouble that people discussed what should replace them as America’s national symbol. The ongoing story of their recovery as a species in Connecticut will be the subject of a talk by wildlife biologist, Brian Hess.

With accompanying projected images, Mr. Hess will explain eagle biology and the story of their perilous population decline and subsequent re-covery, as well as what is being done to con-serve their populations for future generations.
Brian Hess is a wildlife biologist with the Con-necticut Department of Energy and Environmen-tal Protection. Mr. Hess studied wildlife conser-vation as an undergraduate at the University of Delaware and received his M.S. from the Univer-sity of Wisconsin - Milwaukee. He has worked with California condors, greater prairie-chickens, mottled ducks, and shorebirds before starting with DEEP in 2014. The Wildlife Division’s Wild-life Diversity Program conserves non-game wild-life. As part of that group, Brian works to moni-tor and conserve large raptors, reptiles, and amphibians.

The Nightingale by Kristin Hannah               

In love we find out who we want to be.

In war we find out who we are.

FRANCE, 1939

In the quiet village of Carriveau, Vianne Mauriac says goodbye to her husband, Antoine, as he heads for the Front. She doesn't believe that the Nazis will invade France … but invade they do, in droves of marching soldiers, in caravans of trucks and tanks, in planes that fill the skies and drop bombs upon the innocent. When a German captain requisitions Vianne's home, she and her daughter must live with the enemy or lose everything. Without food or money or hope, as danger escalates all around them, she is forced to make one impossible choice after another to keep her family alive.

Vianne's sister, Isabelle, is a rebellious eighteen-year-old girl, searching for purpose with all the reckless passion of youth. While thousands of Parisians march into the unknown terrors of war, she meets Gäetan, a partisan who believes the French can fight the Nazis from within France, and she falls in love as only the young can … completely. But when he betrays her, Isabelle joins the Resistance and never looks back, risking her life time and again to save others.

With courage, grace and powerful insight, bestselling author Kristin Hannah captures the epic panorama of WWII and illuminates an intimate part of history seldom seen: the women's war. The Nightingale tells the stories of two sisters, separated by years and experience, by ideals, passion and circumstance, each embarking on her own dangerous path toward survival, love, and freedom in German-occupied, war-torn France--a heartbreakingly beautiful novel that celebrates the resilience of the human spirit and the durability of women. It is a novel for everyone, a novel for a lifetime.

The Ghosts of Chippeny Hill
2:00 PM

This program has been postponed until February, date will be announced soon!

Forgotten legends, mysteries, monsters and stories of Chippeny Hill. Chippeny Hill now modernized as “Chippens Hill” is at the corner of Harwinton, Bristol and Plymouth. It was notorious for the activities of the Revolutionary War’s Tories and Sons of Liberty. Some apparently never left the area.  The Monster of the Marsh, ghostly images from Todd Hollow and orbs seen near the site of a former colonial dam, mysteries, and ghostly specters of villagers unaware of the 21st century at Lamson Corners are among the fascinating tales from Town Historian Judy Giguere's latest book.

The Midnight Watch by David Dyer

As the Titanic and her passengers sank slowly into the Atlantic Ocean after striking an iceberg late in the evening of April 14, 1912, a nearby ship looked on. Second Officer Herbert Stone, in charge of the midnight watch on the SS Californian sitting idly a few miles north, saw the distress rockets that the Titanic fired. He alerted the captain, Stanley Lord, who was sleeping in the chartroom below, but Lord did not come to the bridge. Eight rockets were fired during the dark hours of the midnight watch, and eight rockets were ignored. The next morning, the Titanic was at the bottom of the sea and more than 1,500 people were dead. When they learned of the extent of the tragedy, Lord and Stone did everything they could to hide their role in the disaster, but pursued by newspapermen, lawyers, and political leaders in America and England, their terrible secret was eventually revealed. The Midnight Watch is a fictional telling of what may have occurred that night on the SS Californian, and the resulting desperation of Officer Stone and Captain Lord in the aftermath of their inaction.

Told not only from the perspective of the SS Californian crew, but also through the eyes of a family of third-class passengers who perished in the disaster, the narrative is drawn together by Steadman, a tenacious Boston journalist who does not rest until the truth is found. David Dyer's The Midnight Watch is a powerful and dramatic debut novel--the result of many years of research in Liverpool, London, New York, and Boston, and informed by the author's own experiences as a ship's officer and a lawyer.

My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She's Sorry

A charming, warmhearted novel from the author of the New York Times bestseller A Man Called Ove.

Elsa is seven years old and different. Her grandmother is seventy-seven years old and crazy—as in standing-on-the-balcony-firing-paintball-guns-at-strangers crazy. She is also Elsa’s best, and only, friend. At night Elsa takes refuge in her grandmother’s stories, in the Land-of-Almost-Awake and the Kingdom of Miamas, where everybody is different and nobody needs to be normal.

When Elsa’s grandmother dies and leaves behind a series of letters apologizing to people she has wronged, Elsa’s greatest adventure begins. Her grandmother’s instructions lead her to an apartment building full of drunks, monsters, attack dogs, and old crones but also to the truth about fairy tales and kingdoms and a grandmother like no other.

My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She’s Sorry is told with the same comic accuracy and beating heart as Fredrik Backman’s bestselling debut novel, A Man Called Ove. It is a story about life and death and one of the most important human rights: the right to be different.
