President James A. Garfield: a Re-examination
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Join the Killingworth Library for an engaging Zoom program by retired HKHS teacher Philip Devlin!

This presentation re-examines the life of the poorly understood 20th American President. Garfield possessed remarkable qualities of character and had an enormous impact on his world. He was a brilliant mathematician, for example, who made a lasting contribution to geometry; furthermore, despite not having a military background, he used his mathematical skill to win a major Civil War battle against a West Point graduate and was eventually promoted to be a general. Garfield had many connections to Connecticut residents, especially in the town of Haddam. A boat disaster off of the coast of Old Saybrook in 1880 is directly linked to his assassination.

Please register in advance using the link below. A Zoom link will be sent to registered attendees the day before the program.

Tuesday Book Discussion
1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

Join us as we discuus The Vanishing Half by Brit Bennett. It is the story of twin sisters, Stella and Desiree, who run away to New Orleans to avoid the fate of their house cleaner mother. One sister will pass for white and the other will marry a black lawyer. A New York Times reviewer said of this type of narrative, “The story of racial passing is a uniquely and intensely American form.” The novel opens in 1968 and covers two decades and two generations affected by the sisters' decisions. The town of Mallard, Louisiana, established as a community for light skinned blacks, is as much a presence with its own moods and tempo as the sisters and their offspring.

“Vanishing Half” was considered one of the ten best books of 2020 by The New York Times, The Washington Post, and NPR. Weather permitting, the meeting will be held in front of the farmhouse at Parmelee Farm at 1:00pm. If it must be zoomed, the announcement will be made via email by 11:00am that morning.

Extra copies will be available at the circulation desk.

Newcomers always welcome!

Mystery Book Club
6:30 PM - 7:30 PM

Join us as we discuss This Tender Land by William Kent Krueger.

In the summer of 1932, on the banks of Minnesota’s Gilead River, Odie O’Banion is an orphan confined to the Lincoln Indian Training School, a pitiless place where his lively nature earns him the superintendent’s wrath. Forced to flee after committing a terrible crime, he and his brother, Albert, their best friend  Mose, and a brokenhearted little girl named Emmy steal away in a canoe, heading for the mighty Mississippi and a place to call their own.

Over the course of one summer, these four orphans journey into the unknown and cross paths with others who are adrift, from struggling farmers and traveling faith healers to displaced families and lost souls of all kinds. With the feel of a modern classic, This Tender Land is an enthralling, big-hearted epic that shows how the magnificent American landscape connects us all, haunts our dreams, and makes us whole.

Extra copies will be available at the circulation desk. Newcomers always welcome!

Meeting location details coming soon.

Join us as we discuss Walk the Wire by David Baldacci.

When Amos Decker and his FBI colleague Alex Jamison are called to London, North Dakota, they instantly sense that the thriving fracking town is ripe for trouble. The promise of a second gold rush has attracted an onslaught of newcomers all hoping for a windfall, and the community is growing faster than houses can be built. The sudden boom has also brought a slew of problems with it, including drugs, property crimes, prostitution—and now murder.

Decker and Jamison are ordered to investigate the death of a young woman named Irene Cramer, whose body was expertly autopsied and then dumped in the open—which is only the beginning of the oddities surrounding the case. As Decker and Jamison dig into Irene's life, they are shocked to discover that the woman who walked the streets by night as a prostitute was a teacher for a local religious sect by day—a sect operating on land once owned by a mysterious government facility that looms over the entire community.

London is a town replete with ruthless business owners, shady government officials, and religious outsiders, all determined to keep their secrets from coming out. When other murders occur, Decker will need all of his extraordinary memory and detective skills, and the assistance of a surprising ally, to root out a killer and the forces behind Cramer's death . . . before the boom town explodesExtra copies will be available at the circulation desk. Newcomers always welcome!
