The Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid by Bill Bryson

In this nostalgic and hilarious memoir of growing up in Des Moines, Iowa in the 1950s, writer Bill Bryson shares stories about his all-American childhood. He recreates the life of his loving but eccentric family and describes an upbringing that is recognizable to any baby boomer and almost foreign to anyone else. The book is a warm, loving and laugh-out-loud description of what it was like to come of age in postwar America.

Copies of the book are available at the Information Desk. Discussion moderated by Librarian Cindy Haiken. Refreshments will be served.

Wallingford Reads YA Book Club
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.

It's the Spanish Inquisition, and agents of oppression grow deadly for two teens.

         "But there are times

        when peace just becomes a broken mouthful.

        A word that no tongue in the world

        Can pronounce."

        -From The Apprentice's Masterpiece

 Fifteenth-century Spain is a richly multicultural society in which Jews, Muslims and Christians coexist. But under the zealous Christian Queen Isabella, the country abruptly becomes one of the most murderously intolerant places on Earth. 

It is in this atmosphere that the Benvenistes, a family of scribes, attempt to eke out a living. The family has a secret-they are conversos: Jews who converted to Christianity. Now, with neighbors and friends turned into spies, fear hangs in the air.  

One day a young man is delivered to their door. His name is Amir, and he wears the robe and red patch of a Muslim. Fifteen-year-old Ramon Benveniste brrods over Amir's easy acceptance into the family. 

Startling and dramatic events overtake the household, and the family is torn apart. One boy becomes enslaved; the other takes up service for the Inquisitors. Finally, their paths cross again in a stunningly haunting scene.  

Drawing on extensive research, Little has crafted a brilliant and elegantly written story in verse about one of the most politically complex and troubling times in human history-the Spanish Inquisition.

Tellabration is a mammoth storytelling event--and that's no tall tale! It's a storytelling phenomenon, made up of dozens of storytelling happenings all over the world.

At Wallingford Public Library's Tellabration, Rona Leventhal will perform. Rona Leventhal has been sharing her passion for the power of story for 27 years, putting laughter in the bellies and smiles in the hearts of listeners. One person said of Rona's style, “Throughout the story I felt like I was watching a fully staged play with scenery and a cast.” Rona’s performances are dynamic, evocative, funny...sometimes all at the same time! Rona is a Teller of Tales, a Workshop Leader, Coach, Teaching Artist, Consultant and by all accounts, a mensch. Her first CD, Into the Dark: Stories From the Shadows (Creepy Stories for Adults and Fearless Teens) is now available!

Grayson Hugh and Polly Messer
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Grayson Hugh is an internationally-acclaimed singer/songwriter. His debut release Blind to Reason (RCA 1988) earned two gold records in Australia and the U.S. and garnered several international radio hits. His songs are a unique combination of highly poetic lyrics set to a fascinating blend of folk, bluegrass, classic soul, and rock ‘n roll.

His second record Road to Freedom was called one of 1992's top ten albums by Billboard Magazine. Two songs from that record were featured in the film Thelma & Louise in 1991.

Grayson taught songwriting at Berklee College of Music in Boston from 1999 through 2003 and composed several scores for modern dance choreographers, notably for the late Viola Farber in New York and Prometheus Dance in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

In 2010 Grayson released An American Record, co-produced by Polly Messer. His 2015 record Back to the Soul was on the Official Ballot for a 2015 Grammy in the Best Americana Album category.

Polly Messer began her career as a singer with the Connecticut swing band Eight to the Bar in 1977. While touring up and down the east coast with them, she met Grayson in a recording studio and soon after, began singing backup vocals for his band Grayson Hugh & the Wildtones in 1982. After several other ventures, in 2007 she teamed up with Grayson once again to sing on his record. Polly and Grayson were married in August 2008.

This is a rare opportunity to hear Grayson Hugh and Polly Messer perform some of Grayson’s hits from radio and film, as well as previously unreleased songs, in an intimate, acoustic setting.
