Wallingford Reads YA Book Club: The Hazel Wood by Melissa Albert
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

All teens and adults are welcome at this book discussion where we discuss Young Adult Literature. Lauren Rumi.  In January we will be discussing Melissa Albert's The Hazel Wood.  Copies of the book are available at the Information Desk.

 

"STAY AWAY FROM THE HAZEL WOOD."
 
Seventeen-year-old Alice Proserpine and her mother have spent most of Alice's life on the road, always a step ahead of the uncanny bad luck biting at their heels. But when Alice's grandmother, the reclusive author of a book of pitch-dark fairy tales, dies alone on her estate, the Hazel Wood, Alice learns how bad her luck can really get. Her mother is stolen away- by a figure who claims to come from the cruel supernatural world where her grandmother's stories are set. 
 
Alice has long steered clear of her grandmother's cultish fans. But now she has no choice but to ally with her classmate and fairy-tale superfan Ellery Finch, who may have his own reasons for wanting to help her. To find her mother, Alice must venture first to the Hazel Wood and then into the world where her grandmother's tales began- and where she might discover why her own story went so wrong.

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.
