Mystery Book Group: Don't Bury the Lede
3:00 PM - 4:15 PM

Discussion moderated by Carole Shmurak, author of The Susan Lombardi Mysteries and Professor Emerita at CCSU.

The word "lede" was once an alternative spelling of lead; now it's mainly journalistic jargon for the introductory portion of a news story--the first part of an article that gives the gist of the story and contains the most important points readers need to know. One should never "bury the lede" or begin a news story with nonessential details. This fall, we'll follow some journalists as they solve mysteries and try to avoid being buried themselves.

Truth Be Told [2014] by Hank Phillippi Ryan
In digging up the facts on the heartbreaking story of a middle class family evicted from their suburban home--and on other foreclosures--reporter Jane Ryland soon learns the truth behind a big-bucks scheme and the surprising players who will stop at nothing, including murder, to keep their goal a secret.

Poets on Poetry: Sylvia Plath
6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

There is a popular tendency to read Sylvia Plath's poetry in the context of her harrowing decision to end her life. But her poems are filled with references to death -- figurative and literal -- as a doorway to rebirth and the exhilaration of women reinventing themselves in roles not dictated by society. In this Poets on Poetry session presenter Mark Sheridan will examine Plath's "October poems," written just before her death.

Mark Sheridan is on the board of the Connecticut Poetry Society, where he has been active in their educational outreach. He received a Ph.D. in Modern History & Literature from Drew University in 2009, and then taught at-risk inner-city high school students in Newark and Elizabeth, NJ for five years.

Warlight by Michael Ondaatje

In London in 1945, 14-year-old Nathaniel and his older sister Rachel are left by their parents in the care of a strange man they call The Moth.  After months of silence, their mother returns without their father and without any explanation of her absence. A dozen years later, Nathaniel begins to uncover all he did not understand about that period. Ondaatje's lyrical meditation on wartime and memory was longlisted for the 2018 Booker Prize.

The Lost Continent: Travels in Small-Town America by Bill Bryson

A travelogue by Bill Bryson is as close to a sure thing as funny books get. The Lost Continent is no exception. Following an urge to rediscover his youth (he should know better), the author leaves his native Des Moines, Iowa, on a journey that takes him across 38 states. Lucky for us, he brought a notebook. With a razor wit and a kind heart, Bryson serves up a colorful tale of boredom, kitsch, and beauty when you least expect it.

Filled with surprising stories of accidental genius and brilliant mistakes--from the French publisher who invented the phonograph before Edison but forgot to include playback, to the Hollywood movie star who helped invent the technology behind Wi-Fi and Bluetooth--How We Got to Now investigates the secret history behind the everyday objects of contemporary life.

Shoreline Ringers - Educational Program on Handbells
7:00 PM - 8:15 PM

Learn about the art of handbell ringing with the Shoreline Ringers, a community handbell choir formed in 2006.

Their goals are to support the continued development of the art of handbell ringing and promote the ringing of handbells as a musical art form, while educating and entertaining audiences. The handbell ringers, some of whom direct other handbell choirs, have a breadth of ringing experience and have come together to learn a more advanced repertoire.

This presentation will review the history of bells, a variety of techniques, a few performance pieces, and encourage audience participation. It promises to be fun for all ages!

No registration required.
