Just One Drop: Documentary Screening & Discussion
6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Just One Drop tells the little known story of homeopathy: the most controversial system of medicine ever invented. Homeopathy is a specific form of medicine that uses minute doses of a highly diluted substance that stimulates the body to cure itself. To many, homeopathy seems implausible. They fear it is purely a placebo effect or worse, a form of deception or quackery. Yet, homeopathy has been around for more than 200 years and is used by millions worldwide. The film explores the controversy, dispels myths and misconceptions, and asks whether or not homeopathy has been given a fair shake. The film's ultimate message is about freedom of choice in healthcare.

Discussion moderated by Abby Beale, a nationally certified classical homeopath and the current board president for The National Center for Homeopathy, who enjoys educating others about the healing power of homeopathy. As a Wallingford resident, she has also served on the Wallingford Library Board of Managers.

Wallingford Reads YA Book Club: What to Say Next by Julie Buxbaum
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.

In May we will be discussing What to Say Next by Julie Buxbaum, a contemporary romance.

When an unlikely friendship is sparked between relatively popular Kit Lowell and socially isolated David Drucker, everyone is surprised, most of all Kit and David. Kit appreciates David's blunt honesty-in fact, she finds it bizarrely refreshing. David welcomes Kit's attention and her inquisitive nature. When she asks for his help figuring out the how and why of her dad's tragic car accident, David is all in. But neither of them can predict what they'll find. Can their friendship survive the truth?

What to Say Next explores the complexity of life and death, especially the difficulty of accepting what can't be changed. It celebrates uniqueness of the individual, and shows that sometimes a new perspective is all that is needed to make sense of the world.

7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Former Record-Journal executive editor James H. Smith will speak about his latest book, Opinionated Women in the Land of Steady Habits. Joining him will be R-J columnists Phyllis Donovan, Barbara Parent, and former R-J Assistant Managing Editor Jacqueline Smith, who all appear in the book.

The book “melds the voices of many inspirational women journalists spanning from the 1950s to present day, with one intriguing flashback to 1828,” wrote Colleen Murphy, executive director of the Connecticut Freedom of Information Commission. The 63 women‘s “voices are a treasure trove, glimmering with . . . clarity, honesty, humor and vision.”

Opinionated Women presents women columnists from every daily newspaper in Connecticut writing about everything from politics, dance, gardening, restaurants, war, peace, feminism, and women’s rights.

Truth Be Told: Tuesday Night Non-Fiction Book Discussion
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
The Line Becomes a River: Dispatches from the Border by Francisco Cantú

For Francisco Cantú, the border is in the blood: his mother, a park ranger and daughter of a Mexican immigrant, raised him in the scrublands of the Southwest. Driven to understand the hard realities of the landscape he loves, Cantú joins the Border Patrol. He and his partners learn to track other humans under blistering sun and through frigid nights. They haul in the dead and deliver to detention those they find alive. Plagued by a growing awareness of his complicity in a dehumanizing enterprise, he abandons the Patrol for civilian life. But when an immigrant friend travels to Mexico to visit his dying mother and does not return, Cantú discovers that the border has migrated with him, and now he must know the full extent of the violence it wreaks, on both sides of the line.

Discussion moderated by Journalist and Literary Critic Parul Kapur Hinzen. Copies of the book are available at the Information Desk.

The Motherlode
6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

This “powwow” is for anyone who’s ever had a mom, and parallels a primary theme in Velya Jancz-Urban and Ehris Urban's mother/daughter memoir (How to Survive a Brazilian Betrayal, Green Writers Press, 2019).

Mothers and daughters with close relationships are often asked, “What’s your secret?” The secret is understanding and respecting each other's miasm.

Are you psoricsycotic, or syphilitc? How 'bout your mom? Unless you're superhuman or immortal, you have a miasm - and it's influenced how you've lived your life and interacted with others - colleagues, bosses, spouse(s), family members - even a blind date!

Whether your mom is living or has passed away, and whether your relationship was good or crummy, you'll love this eye-opening powwow led by a funny & frank mother/daughter duo.

5:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Do you like to sew? Join people who enjoy quilting and sewing at a casual “drop in” program anytime from 5:00-9:00 p.m. in the Collaboratory the 3rd Wednesday evening of each month. Meet people to share ideas with and get inspired for your next project! Bring your unfinished projects, either hand sewing or machine. There are portable sewing machines (or bring your own) and lots of sewing supplies and tools provided by the library for your use including rotary blades, thread, needles, pins, cutting mats, cutting table, scissors, rulers and more! While you are here you can view the Baby Lock Crown Jewel III long arm quilting machine, the Bernina Artista 200/730 embroidery machine and also the Juki Exceed 600 computerized sewing machine (these machines require a training appointment with a staff member and will also need to be reserved when you want to use them). Stop by for 10 minutes or for the full 4 hours for a fun evening of sharing and learning!
