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.

Wallingford Reads YA Book Club: Outrun the Moon by Stacey Lee
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.

Fifteen-year-old Mercy Wong is determined to break from the poverty of Chinatown, San Francisco in 1906, and an education at St. Clare’s School for Girls is her best hope. Although St. Clare’s is off-limits to all but the wealthiest white girls, Mercy gains admittance through a mix of cunning and a little bribery, only to discover that getting in was the easiest part. Not to be undone by a bunch of spoiled heiresses, Mercy stands strong—until disaster strikes.


On April 18, a historic earthquake rocks San Francisco, destroying Mercy’s home and school. Now she’s forced to wait with her classmates for their families in a temporary park encampment. Though fires might rage, and the city may be in shambles, Mercy can’t sit by while they wait for the army to bring help—she still has the “bossy” cheeks that mark her as someone who gets things done. But what can one teenage girl do to heal so many suffering in her broken city?

The Village: Life in New Haven's Little Italy
11:00 AM - 12:30 PM

Join Director Steve Hamm, Editor Scott Amore, and Frank Carrano who grew up in Wooster Square and inspired the film, The Village: Life in New Haven’s Little Italy, for a special screening and discussion.

The Village tells the story of the city’s Wooster Square neighborhood, which for many years was a tight-knit Italian-American enclave. Using oral history interviews, photos from family albums, and historic films and photographs, the documentary explores the power of ethnic identity and reaffirms the importance of immigration to American society. Today, few descendants of the immigrants still live in Wooster Square, but vestiges of their community remain—in the church, the ethnic societies and their festas, and the pizza joints and pastry shops. Most vividly, the village lives on in the fond memories of the people who grew up there.

Come to view the documentary, ask the filmmakers questions, and share your own experiences!

Wallingford Reads YA Book Club: I am Malala by Malala Yousafzai
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 Memoir of the Youngest Recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize.
 
When the Taliban took control of the Swat Valley in Pakistan, one girl spoke out. Malala Yousafzai refused to be silenced and fought for her right to an education. On Tuesday, October 9, 2012, when she was fifteen, she almost paid the ultimate price. She was shot in the head at point-blank range while riding the bus home from school, and few expected her to survive.

Instead, Malala’s miraculous recovery has taken her on an extraordinary journey from a remote valley in northern Pakistan to the halls of the United Nations in New York. At sixteen, she became a global symbol of peaceful protest and the youngest nominee ever for the Nobel Peace Prize. I AM MALALA is the remarkable tale of a family uprooted by global terrorism, of the fight for girls’ education, of a father who, himself a school owner, championed and encouraged his daughter to write and attend school, and of brave parents who have a fierce love for their daughter in a society that prizes sons.

The Game: Harvard, Yale, and America in 1968
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Bestselling author George Howe Colt will talk about his new book, The Game: Harvard, Yale, and America in 1968, and answer questions.

The book tells the story of the 1968 Harvard-Yale football game, the legendary 29-29 tie that is included on nearly every list of the top ten most exciting games in college football history. Although it includes a detailed description of the game itself, the book is about a watershed year in American history (the assassinations of Martin Luther King and Bobby Kennedy, rioting at the Democratic National Convention, the Tet Offensive, increasing racial tension, not to mention sex, drugs, and rock and roll) as navigated by a group of young men and by the contrasting institutions they attended. The Wall Street Journal called it "the rare sports book that lives up to the claim of so many entrants in this genre: It is, in its way, the portrait of an era."
