No Place Like Home: The World-Class Landscapes and Environmental History of the Wallingford Region
6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

This program is part of the Gray-Wulff Environmental Series.

Join us for an illustrated lecture presenting highlights from the new book, The Traprock Landscapes of New England: Environment, History, and Culture by Peter LeTourneau, Ph.D. and Robert Pagini.

Born and raised in Meriden, Robert Pagini and Dr. LeTourneau were inspired from an early age by the spectacular landscapes of the local region. Once called "the boldest and most beautiful" landscapes of New England, thousands of visitors, including scientists, writers, artists, and landscape tourists, flocked to the traprock hills for inspiration. Two of the most important American landscape paintings, Thomas Cole's "Oxbow" and "West Rock" by Frederic Church, feature Connecticut Valley landscapes. The traprock hills surrounding Wallingford played a key role in early scientific discoveries and the development of landscape tourism. Nearby Hubbard Park, designed by the firm founded by Frederick Law Olmstead was praised as one of the finest municipal parks of its time. The open space environments and clean water supplied by the traprock hills comprise critical natural resources for the region. Dr. LeTourneau will present interesting facts, historic images, and Mr. Pagini's beautiful photographs of Wallingford and the nearby areas in the Connecticut Valley.

Reiki 101
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Reiki is an ancient hands-on healing practice promoting physical healing and self-improvement by reducing “stress” trapped in the body, which can manifest in a physical, emotional, or spiritual state of imbalance. This presentation by Reiki Master Practitioner/Instructor Lynn Camera will provide you with a better understanding of our connection to the universe and people around us through “Ki” or life force energy as you learn about your energy centers and how they influence the body both physically and emotionally.

Lynn will explore the Reiki experience, answering the most commonly asked questions such as: What is Reiki? How does it work? What does a session feel like? What are the benefits? What can I expect during and after a session?

Come hear Janet Booth, an astrologer with more than 40 years of experience review the connections between the sky and our lives on earth, and learn something about yourself in the process.

Janet Booth (AstrologyBooth.com) serves an international clientele of individuals and businesses.

Interpreter of Maladies by Jhumpa Lahiri

In this Pulitzer Prize-winning collection of nine short stories, the characters navigate between the Indian traditions of their birth or heritage and the American customs of their new world. The men and women who populate these elegant and touching stories share the universal experience of having grown up, left home, fallen in or out of love and learned what it means to be a foreigner, even within one's own family. Lahiri's observations are damningly accurate, and her bittersweet stories are unhampered by nostalgia.

Working with the LGBTQ Community, A to Z
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

This professional development workshop, presented by Vin Testa, will explore 26 things youth service providers, educators, and allies need to know about working with people who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or queer/questioning (LGBTQ). Formatted as a roundtable, this training will allow for rich discussion and will allow time for participants to ask questions and network. By no means does the presenter claim to speak for, or represent, any group or individual within the LGBTQ community.

Vin Testa is an LGBTQ Liaison with DC Public Schools, where he receives monthly training from their Central Office team on working with LGBTQ-identifying youth and then provides that training to his colleagues at the school level. He has been giving iterations of this particular presentation, which he adopted (and adapted) from one of his trainings, for roughly six years.

Books as Medicine: A History of Bibliotherapy
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Presenter Mary Mahoney is a historian who studies the use of books as medicine, now called bibliotherapy. In this talk, she will discuss historical examples of bibliotherapy, including the use of books as a form of "moral treatment" in nineteenth-century asylums, the Library War Service which dispensed books as medicine to servicemen during World War I, and more modern attempts to prescribe books to heal illness and promote health. This talk will ask you to think about your own relationships with books, and to imagine how the books you are drawn to for escape, diversion, consolation, and more might be thought of as a matter of health.

Wallingford Reads YA Book Club: Scythe by Neal Shusterman
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

All teens and adults are welcome at this book discussion where we discuss Young Adult Literature. Lauren Rumi.  Copies of the book are available at the Information Desk.

A world with no hunger, no disease, no war, no misery: humanity has conquered all those things, and has even conquered death. Now Scythes are the only ones who can end life—and they are commanded to do so, in order to keep the size of the population under control.

Citra and Rowan are chosen to apprentice to a scythe—a role that neither wants. These teens must master the “art” of taking life, knowing that the consequence of failure could mean losing their own.

Scythe is the first novel of a thrilling new series by National Book Award–winning author Neal Shusterman in which Citra and Rowan learn that a perfect world comes only with a heavy price.
