Made in Wallingford: HOLO-KROME
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Wallingford is home to dozens of innovative manufacturers that have played key roles in the global marketplace, contributing to the economy and community. In many cases, the products they make are cutting-edge, life-saving, and life enhancing. The Wallingford Public Library, in conjunction with the Wallingford Economic Development Commission, presents Made in Wallingford, a program series highlighting hometown industry leaders who will share their stories, challenges, and successes.

In this installment of the series, Facility Manager David Williams will talk about HOLO-KROME, a manufacturer of threaded fastenings which hold metal parts together. HOLO-KROME has been at the forefront of fastener innovation since its founding in 1929. Their tradition of quality continues today at their 200,000 square foot facility in Wallingford where they manufacture more than 100 million parts a year. Wherever screws are called for to perform their basic function of fastening metal parts securely, while at the same time permitting ready separation of the parts in the event of repairs, replacements, or adjustments, there is a style and size of HOLO-KROME hex-socket screw to do the job. Hardly an industry can be named that doesn't need HOLO-KROME products: in the tools and machines that make and process the great variety of commodities used in everyday living; in the broad fields of communication, transportation, agriculture, mining, and construction.

Mystery Book Group: Native American Sleuths
3:00 PM - 4:15 PM

When author Tony Hillerman submitted his first manuscript to an agent, he was told, "It's a good mystery, but lose that Indian stuff." Fortunately, he didn't listen.

In addition to the Hillermans, we'll read three other authors whose detectives are Native Americans in upstate New York, Minnesota, and Wyoming.

This month: Dance Hall of the Dead [1973] by Tony Hillerman
A Zuñi boy dies in a bizarre ritual slaying, and his best friend, a Navajo youth, is missing. Navajo police lieutenant Joe Leaphorn tracks the suspect across New Mexico and Arizona.

Equal Means Equal: Documentary Screening & Discussion
6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

The award-winning documentary “Equal Means Equal” offers an unflinching look at how women are treated in the United States today. Examining both real-life stories and precedent-setting legal cases, director Kamala Lopez uncovers how outdated and discriminatory attitudes inform and influence seemingly disparate issues, from workplace harassment to domestic violence, rape and sexual assault, to the foster care system and the healthcare conglomerate, to the judicial system. Along the way, she reveals the inadequacy of present laws that claim to protect women, ultimately presenting a compelling and persuasive argument for the urgency of ratifying the Equal Rights Amendment.

Mystery Book Group: Native American Sleuths
3:00 PM - 4:15 PM

When author Tony Hillerman submitted his first manuscript to an agent, he was told, "It's a good mystery, but lose that Indian stuff." Fortunately, he didn't listen. The Leaphorn/Chee series ran from 1970-2006, comprising 18 books; his daughter Anne is now continuing the series. In addition to the Hillermans, we'll read three other authors whose detectives are Native Americans in upstate New York, Minnesota, and Wyoming.

This month: Dance for the Dead [1996] by Thomas Perry
Native American guide Jane Whitefield takes on two clients--Timmy, the young heir to a fortune, whose adoptive family is murdered, and Mary Perkins, accused of stealing millions from S&L banks--whose cases become strangely intertwined.

Copies of the book are available at the Information Desk. This Book Club is moderated by Carole Shmurak, author of 11 books and Professor Emerita at Central Connecticut State University.

Mystery Book Group: Native American Sleuths
3:00 PM - 4:15 PM

When author Tony Hillerman submitted his first manuscript to an agent, he was told, "It's a good mystery, but lose that Indian stuff." Fortunately, he didn't listen. The Leaphorn/Chee series ran from 1970-2006, comprising 18 books; his daughter Anne is now continuing the series. In addition to the Hillermans, we'll read three other authors whose detectives are Native Americans in upstate New York, Minnesota, and Wyoming.

This month: Thunder Bay [2007] by William Kent Krueger
Leaving behind a stressful law enforcement career in the hopes of becoming a private investigator in his small Minnesota hometown, Cork O'Connor is asked by an Ojibwe healer to help him find the son the man fathered years earlier, a case that culminates in an attempt on the Ojibwe's life.

Copies of the book are available at the Information Desk. This Book Club is moderated by Carole Shmurak, author of 11 books and Professor Emerita at Central Connecticut State University.
