The Motherlode
6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

This “powwow” is for anyone who’s ever had a mom, and parallels a primary theme in Velya Jancz-Urban and Ehris Urban's mother/daughter memoir (How to Survive a Brazilian Betrayal, Green Writers Press, 2019).

Mothers and daughters with close relationships are often asked, “What’s your secret?” The secret is understanding and respecting each other's miasm.

Are you psoricsycotic, or syphilitc? How 'bout your mom? Unless you're superhuman or immortal, you have a miasm - and it's influenced how you've lived your life and interacted with others - colleagues, bosses, spouse(s), family members - even a blind date!

Whether your mom is living or has passed away, and whether your relationship was good or crummy, you'll love this eye-opening powwow led by a funny & frank mother/daughter duo.

As he set took his first step, Armstrong famously said, "That's one small step for [a] man, one giant leap for mankind."                                          

Join Dr. Kristine Larsen, Central Connecticut State University astronomy professor, for a journey to the Moon and back, retracing the triumphs, tragedies, and hidden figures that made possible the historic first steps that Armstrong took in the name of all humanity.

Truth Be Told: Tuesday Night Non-Fiction Book Discussion

In the Heart of the Sea: The Tragedy of the Whaleship Essex by Nathaniel Philbrick

Winner of the National Book Award, Nathaniel Philbrick's book is a fantastic saga of survival and adventure, steeped in the lore of whaling, with deep resonance in American literature and history. In 1820, the whaleship Essex was rammed and sunk by a sperm whale, leaving the desperate crew to drift for more than 90 days in three tiny boats. Philbrick uses little-known documents and vivid details about the Nantucket whaling tradition to reveal the chilling facts of this infamous maritime disaster.

Discussion moderated by Library Enthusiast Will Minter. Copies of the book are available at the Information Desk.

Lab Girl by Hope Jahren

Geobiologist Hope Jahren has spent her life studying trees, flowers, seeds, and soil. This autobiography is a celebration of the lifelong curiosity, humility, and passion that drive every scientist. Jahren takes readers back to her Minnesota childhood, where she spent hours playing in her father's college laboratory. She introduces us to Bill, her brilliant and eccentric lab manager. And she invites all of us to join her in observing and protecting our environment. Lab Girl vividly demonstrates the mountains we can move when love and work come together.

Discussion moderated by Library Enthusiast Will Minter. Copies of the book are available at the Information Desk.

Shoreline Ringers - Educational Program on Handbells
7:00 PM - 8:15 PM

Learn about the art of handbell ringing with the Shoreline Ringers, a community handbell choir formed in 2006.

Their goals are to support the continued development of the art of handbell ringing and promote the ringing of handbells as a musical art form, while educating and entertaining audiences. The handbell ringers, some of whom direct other handbell choirs, have a breadth of ringing experience and have come together to learn a more advanced repertoire.

This presentation will review the history of bells, a variety of techniques, a few performance pieces, and encourage audience participation. It promises to be fun for all ages!

No registration required.
