Conversations: Truth, Myth & Democracy – An Evening of Discussion with Dr. Jelani Cobb and Dr. Jason Stanley, moderated by Tina Rosenberg

Webinar Waiting Room Opens at 7:00 pm,  Program Begins at 7:30 pm
Registration Required Below

Join the Friends of the Weston Library and the League of Women Voters of Weston as they partner with the Mark Twain Library and League of Women Voters of Redding for this timely program. As part of our on-going series “Conversations”, created in partnership with the Redding League of Women Voters and the Mark Twain Library, we invite you to join us for a virtual discussion with acclaimed historian Dr. Jelani Cobb and renowned philosopher Dr. Jason Stanley.  The program will be moderated by award-winning journalist Tina Rosenberg and examines the underlying meaning of our democracy and how democracy can matter even when we have very different ideas about what it should look like.  

This evening is part of a series that is devoted to exploring how caring citizens from disparate groups can find common ground at a time when the tenets of American democracy have been challenged by the questioning of truth and the fostering of myth.  Through informed dialogue and civil discourse we’ll examine the underlying meaning of our democracy and how democracy can matter even when we have very different ideas about what it should look like.  

Registration is required for this free virtual program.  Registered participants will receive a Zoom invitation on the day of the program.  Webinar waiting room opens at 7:00 pm and program begins at 7:30 pm

Village of the Dammed with James Lomuscio
1:30 PM - 2:30 PM

The Friends of the Weston Library presents a program of intense historic interest with the author of Village of the Dammed: The Fight for Open Space and the Flooding of a Connecticut Town. 

The book by James Lomuscio was a finalist for the Connecticut Book Award in nonfiction in 2006.

Many residents have no idea that Valley Forge, CT, was once a thriving 19th c. iron- and steel-manufacturing village. Since the early 1940’s, its remains have lain one hundred feet beneath the waters of the Saugatuck Reservoir, the submerged town a once-unwilling victim of the Bridgeport Hydraulic Company’s post-WWI plans for the scenic valley. Nearby Trout Brook Valley almost suffered the same fate in the 1990s, but proposed plans were thwarted by a group of grassroots citizens, supported by the late Paul Newman. Lomuscio will describe these historic fights, the life-altering repercussions for their feisty townspeople, as well as the implications for open spaces vs. modern development in today’s world.

Lomuscio has been an award-winning journalist for more than 40 years, writing for Gannett newspapers, The (Bridgeport) Connecticut Post and The New York Times. Locally, he is best known as associate editor of WestportNow and the former editor of Westport News and Westport Magazine.

Recently retired from the state university system, Lomuscio remains an adjunct professor of writing and journalism at Western Connecticut State and Norwalk Community College. 

Please register and we will send you the Zoom link in advance of the program.

Women's History Month: Fanny Bullock Workman with Author Cathryn Prince
1:30 AM - 2:30 AM

In recognition of Women's History Month, please join the Weston Public Library as they host Cathryn Prince, author of Queen of the Mountaineers: The Trailblazing Life of Fanny Bullock Workman. Cathryn will offer a presentation on Fanny Bullock Workman followed by a Q&A. Personalized copies of Cathryn's books are available for purchase. To reserve a copy, please email ktatarka@westonct.gov. 

Fanny Bullock Workman was a complicated and restless woman who defied the rigid Victorian morals she found as restrictive as a corset. With her frizzy brown hair tucked under a helmet, Workman was a force on and off the mountain. Instrumental in breaking the British stranglehold on Himalayan mountain climbing, this American woman climbed more peaks than any of her peers and became the first woman to map the far reaches of the Himalayas and the second to address the Royal Geographic Society of London, whose past members included Charles Darwin, Richard Francis Burton, and David Livingstone. Her books—replete with photographs, illustrations, and descriptions of meteorological conditions, glaciology, and the effect of high altitudes on humans—remained useful decades after their publication. Paving the way for a legion of female climbers, Workman's legacy lives on in scholarship prizes at Wellesley, Smith, Radcliffe, and Bryn Mawr. Queen of the Mountaineers is the story of one woman's role in science and exploration, breaking boundaries and charting frontiers for women everywhere.

Cathryn Prince is the author of American DaredevilDeath in the Baltic, and Shot from the Sky. She has worked as a correspondent for the Christian Science Monitor in Switzerland and in New York, where she reported on the United Nations, and is a frequent contributor to The Times of Israel. She is a Visiting Assistant Professor in Journalism at SUNY-Purchase and holds a B.A. from The Elliot School of International Affairs, The George Washington University; an M.S. from The Graduate School of Journalism, Columbia University; and an M.A. in American Studies from Fairfield University.

Please register and you will receive the Zoom link the day before the program.

Women's History Month: The Work Must Be Done: Women of Color and the Right to Vote
6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

Please join the Weston Historical Society, League of Women Voters of Weston and the Weston Public Library for this special event in honor of Women's History Month. Please register and we will send the Zoom link the day before the event.

The Work Must Be Done: Women of Color and the Right to Vote

Inspired by the words of notable African American reformer and political activist, Mary Townsend Seymour, “the work must be done”, the Connecticut Historical Society presents exciting new research about Connecticut’s women of color who worked for women’s suffrage. Professor Brittney Yancy, Assistant Professor of Humanities, Goodwin University and Karen Li Miller, Research Historian from the Connecticut Historical Society will raise up the stories of women such as Mrs. Seymour, Rose Payton, Minnie Glover, Sarah Brown Flemming, and others. The program includes conversation on the importance of having inclusive history. Participants will gain a broader understanding of the role women of color played in the women’s suffrage movement and of the restrictions, stemming from systemic racism, that limited women of color from being more officially involved in the movement. The program aims to inspire community members to engage in additional research on these women.

Long Term Care Presentation
3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

You have your 401(k), Your diversified portfolio, and Your retirement nest egg...

You’ve thought of everything – except for how to protect these assets should you need long-term care. It’s a fact: Just one year in a Connecticut nursing home can cost more than $166,000.   And Medicare and health insurance may only cover a fraction of these costs.

Now there's a way to protect your life’s savings. If you’re 40 or older, long-term care insurance approved by the State’s Connecticut Partnership for Long-Term Care should be part of your retirement plan.  These policies assure you of the highest quality standards.  They’re affordable and provide asset protection, protect against inflation, and – most important – give you peace of mind through your retirement years.

Free Seminar. On March 30 at 3pm the Weston Public Library and Weston Senior Center will be co-sponsoring a presentation on this very important topic with special guest speaker Aldo Pantano, from the CT Partnership for Long-Term Care, with the State Office of Policy and Management.  Come learn about how the State’s Partnership for Long-Term Care can help you plan ahead for your future long term care needs.  

No company specific products will be discussed, and there will be no sales or solicitations allowed – just information that you should know.  

P.S. Even if you’ve put aside money for your retirement, such as through a 401(k), these assets are vulnerable should you need long-term care.  Our free seminar will explain how long-term care insurance can help protect your retirement investments.

Aldo Pantano has been with the CT Partnership for Long-Term Care for 13 years. Prior to joining the State, he spent 24 years in the private insurance industry including six years as a Sales Executive promoting and selling group Long Term Care Insurance to employers with 500 or more employees throughout the country. He speaks frequently on the topic of long-term care insurance and related topics. Aldo is also responsible for training insurance agents through the CT Partnership for Long-Term Care Producer Certification Training Program. In addition, he works closely with consumers and insurance agents to answer questions about the CT Partnership for Long Term Care, Medicaid, Medicare and long-term care insurance. Aldo holds a B.A. Degree in Marketing from the University of Hartford.
