Wallingford Public Library Association 137th Annual Meeting
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Join us to celebrate our 137th year! After refreshments and a brief business meeting, we will enjoy a performance by Jennifer Munro, an award-winning storyteller whose sense of humor permeates every story she tells. Jennie has been telling stories since 1987. However, the real adventure began when she started creating her own stories. Some of her stories are based on the unusual characters in her life, others are myths and fairy tales informed by personal experience, while others are old stories disguised in modern garb. No matter the source, Jennie's stories are witty, uplifting, and often poignant original stories that explore the triumphs and foibles of the human condition.

All are welcome!

Mystery Book Group: Let's Kill All the Lawyers
3:00 PM - 4:15 PM

"The first thing we do, let's kill all the lawyers" is one of the few memorable lines from Shakespeare's Henry the Sixth, Part 2, uttered by Dick the butcher, a character no one remembers. In this series, we won't kill any lawyers, but we'll meet a few of them who act as detectives in some highly regarded series.

This month: Open and Shut [2002] by David Rosenfelt
Whether dueling with new forensics or the local old boys' network, irreverent defense attorney Andy Carpenter always leaves them awed with his biting wit and winning fourth-quarter game plan. But Andy prefers the company of his best friend, Tara, to the people he encounters in the courtroom. Tara, a golden retriever, is clearly smarter than half the lawyers who clog the courts of Passaic County. However, just as it seems Andy has everything figured out, his dad, New Jersey's legendary ex-D.A., drops dead in front of him at a game in Yankee Stadium. The shocks pile on as he discovers his dad left him with two unexpected legacies: a fortune of $22 million that Andy never knew existed . . . and a murder case with enough racial tinder to burn down City Hall. Struggling to serve justice and bring honor to his father, Andy must dig up some explosive political skeletons-and an astonishing family secret that can close his case (and his mouth) for good.

This Book Club is moderated by Carole Shmurak, author of 11 books and Professor Emerita at Central Connecticut State University.

Deep Travel: How to Journey like Henry David Thoreau
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

David K. Leff, author, poet, lecturer, and former Deputy Commissioner of the CT DEP, will deliver an illustrated talk that opens a window into Thoreau’s way of travel. Learn how the Concord naturalist prepared for excursions, why he chose a particular means of travel, his technique for close observation of people and nature, and the impact of travel on his life.  Although Thoreau never used the term “deep travel,” it well describes his expansive and enriching way of experiencing places near and far.

Leff has written two books about Thoreau: Deep Travel: In Thoreau’s Wake on the Concord and Merrimack (2009) and more recently, Canoeing Maine’s Legendary Allagash: Thoreau, Romance and Survival of the Wild (2016). Books will be available for sale and signing.

Gladius
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

More than a fabulous performer and award-winning composer, listeners have called Gladius a miracle in the making—the guitarist has prevailed over a crippling case of nerve damage which could have easily ended a musician's career.

Inspired by the great composers, Spanish guitar maestros, and more, Gladius is a musical mad scientist who fuses musical elements into a refreshing formula—evoking the Spanish spirit, yet distinctly unorthodox, mixing influences from classical to rock and beyond. Gladius defines innovation as a composer and mastery as an instrumentalist—perpetually pushing the boundaries of his Baroque-Ethnic-Metal fusion: on both the classical and electric guitar.

This unbelievably talented musician has to be seen to be believed and appreciated. For a sneak peek of his performance, visit gladiusmusic.com

Women in American History: Amelia Earhart
6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

In this series presented by Mark Albertson, four pioneering women will be featured for their contributions to America in the 19th and 20th centuries. These women made their marks in a variety of venues: political, social, racial, human and civil rights, literature, and aviation. Each woman, in her own way, advanced not only the course of women, but society itself. This series will highlight the lives and achievements of these four extraordinary women.

Noevmber:  Amelia Earhart
Amelia Earhart
helped blaze a trail in aviation for women. She was a vehement proponent of Women’s Rights who informed her betrothed—publisher George Palmer Putnam—on their wedding day that she would not be constricted to medieval conventions pertaining to marriage. Amelia Earhart and other female aviators of the period served as inspirations for those intrepid women who crossed the Atlantic during World War II, delivering aircraft to the Allied air forces in the European Theater of War.

Each woman, in her own way, advanced not only the course of women, but society itself. This series will highlight the lives and achievements of these four extraordinary women.

December: Eleanor Roosevelt
The quintessential American liberal, Eleanor Roosevelt transformed the Office of First Lady.  She was the first First Lady to address a presidential convention; she gave 348 press conferences during her 12 years in office; she published more than 60 feature articles in the nation’s leading periodicals; she wrote a daily newspaper column, “My Day,” from 1936 to 1962; she was a significant reason the Black Constituency shifted from the Republican to the Democratic Party; and she co-authored the United Nations’ Declaration on Human Rights.  Harry Truman would later observe that Eleanor Roosevelt was not only First Lady of America, but of the world.

"The first thing we do, let's kill all the lawyers" is one of the few memorable lines from Shakespeare's Henry the Sixth, Part 2, uttered by Dick the butcher, a character no one remembers. In this series, we won't kill any lawyers, but we'll meet a few of them who act as detectives in some highly regarded series.

This month: The Lincoln Lawyer [2005] by Michael Connelly
Representing some unsavory characters in his work as a defense lawyer, Mickey Haller takes on his first high-paying and possibly innocent client in years, but finds the case complicated by events that suggest a particularly evil perpetrator.

Why knit?  Research shows that knitting supports a healthy brain and help elevate mood.  What are you waiting for?  Grab your needles and yarn (we will provide materials if you are without) and come to a fun filled evening.
