6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

The Lyme Public LIbrary is pleased to welcome Professor Dame Alison RIchard, of Yale University who is the author of the new book “Sloth Lemur’s Song”, a fascinating account of the impact of climate change on Madagascar. Madagascar is a biodiversity hotspot where its forests and wildlife have expanded and contracted in response to shifting climate changes making it a microcosm of global trends. Professor Richard has studied Madagascar for decades immersing herself in conservation activity there. What happened and continues to happen on the island of Madagascar might just be the best indication of what can be done both positively and negatively in terms of the damages inflicted by sudden or prolonged manmade changes in the earth’s climate.

 Join us when Claire Griffin, author of the book  “A Rebellious Woman” appears at the Lyme Public Library. “A Rebellious Woman” is the biography of Belle Boyd a fascinating character who lived during the American Civil War era. At a time in American history when a woman’s only purpose was to be a well-behaved wife and mother, Belle Boyd stands out. Women of Belle’s generation were  kept in their place by strict etiquette rules, restrictive clothing and easy access to opiates in order to keep them passive and agreeable. Belle rejected rigid rules and roles, and insisted on making her own choices. Author Claire Griffin will speak about Belle and her unique place in American history.
