Professor Ben Kiernan, PhD, the A. Whitney Griswold Professor of History, Professor of International and Area Studies at Yale University, and author of Viêt Nam: A History from Earliest Times to the Present (Oxford University Press, 2017) will discuss the military history of the Vietnam War. The Vietnam War from 1954 to 1975 was in fact three wars: the guerrilla war in the lowland villages of the Mekong delta and coastal plain of South Vietnam, a largely conventional war in the hills and forests of the Central Highlands, and an air war fought mostly over North Vietnam and Laos. The combination of all three theaters turned a civil war in the South into a major international conflagration.

Mystery Book Group: Native American Sleuths
3:00 PM - 4:15 PM

When author Tony Hillerman submitted his first manuscript to an agent, he was told, "It's a good mystery, but lose that Indian stuff." Fortunately, he didn't listen. The Leaphorn/Chee series ran from 1970-2006, comprising 18 books; his daughter Anne is now continuing the series. In addition to the Hillermans, we'll read three other authors whose detectives are Native Americans in upstate New York, Minnesota, and Wyoming.

This month: Dance for the Dead [1996] by Thomas Perry
Native American guide Jane Whitefield takes on two clients--Timmy, the young heir to a fortune, whose adoptive family is murdered, and Mary Perkins, accused of stealing millions from S&L banks--whose cases become strangely intertwined.

Copies of the book are available at the Information Desk. This Book Club is moderated by Carole Shmurak, author of 11 books and Professor Emerita at Central Connecticut State University.

Revitalizing Public Health Nutrition: Strategies for the Future
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

Food insecurity is the inability to consistently access or afford adequate food.

Food insecurity is prevalent problem across many communities in the United States. It impacts a student’s ability to learn in the classroom, a parent or grandparent’s capacity to provide the essentials for their family, and the overall health of a community. Why then, do we find that participation rates in low income nutrition programs are declining, despite the need for this aid?

Professor Michael Puglisi, PhD, RD, assistant extension professor in UConn's Department of Nutritional Sciences, will talk about the way nutrition guidelines and education have evolved over generations. Together we’ll explore the new initiatives that show potential for shaping the future of nutritional assistance programs, including strategies that target nutritional education, mindful eating, and stress reduction.

This program is co-sponsored by the American Association of University Women (AAUW), UConn, and the Wallingford Public Library.

Mystery Book Group: Native American Sleuths
3:00 PM - 4:15 PM

When author Tony Hillerman submitted his first manuscript to an agent, he was told, "It's a good mystery, but lose that Indian stuff." Fortunately, he didn't listen. The Leaphorn/Chee series ran from 1970-2006, comprising 18 books; his daughter Anne is now continuing the series. In addition to the Hillermans, we'll read three other authors whose detectives are Native Americans in upstate New York, Minnesota, and Wyoming.

This month: Spider Woman's Daughter [2013] by Anne Hillerman
When one of her colleagues is gunned down, Navajo Nation Police Officer Bernadette Manality helps her husband, Sergeant Jim Chee, find the shooter and discovers a link to a cold case involving Jim's former partner, Joe Leaphorn.
