Pearl Harbor the Stories Behind the Story

Phil Devlin returns with another fascinating presentation!

This popular program not only deals with the numerous, interesting Connecticut connections to the infamous sneak attack on Pearl Harbor, but also deals with the often overlooked historical antecedents of the attack—a battle in the Russo-Japanese War as well as a surprise attack in Italy during World War II—which render the attack in Hawaii not as big of a surprise as it has been portrayed. The huge role that the Japanese obsession with oil played in the attack is also discussed.

This program will be held via Zoom. Use the link to register below - registrants will receive an email the day of the program, to access the presentation online.

Book Club Combo Holiday Meetup!

Join both our Tuesday Book Discussion group and the Mystery Book Club at the BarrelHouse in Killingworth, as we discuss The Searcher by Tana French.

“The Searcher” is the story of a retired Chicago police detective who buys a cottage outside a crossroads town in the west of Ireland. He is entranced by the wild beauty of the place, the clean smell of the air, and the starry night sky. But his years of experience as a cop tell him someone is watching. So begins his introduction to the place in which he chose to live. The lonely wildness of the setting and quirkiness of the locals become characters themselves.

The price of the event is $18.00 which includes a drink, light snacks, and tip. We are also having a holiday grab bag of a slightly used or new gift wrapped book. Please let either Sandy Allard at 860-663-2244 or Kathy Amoia at 860-304-4144 know if you plan to attend. The two book clubs have the BarrelHouse to themselves that evening. Newcomers are welcome, just give one of us a call or text.

Extra copies of the book are available at the circulation desk.

Join us as we discuss The Killing Floor by Lee Child.

Ex-military policeman Jack Reacher is a drifter. He’s just passing through Margrave, Georgia, and in less than an hour, he’s arrested for murder. Not much of a welcome. All Reacher knows is that he didn’t kill anybody. At least not here. Not lately. But he doesn’t stand a chance of convincing anyone. Not in Margrave, Georgia. Not a chance in hell.

Extra copies will be available for checkout at the circulation desk.

Join us as we discuss A Better Man by Louise Penny.

It’s Gamache’s first day back as head of the homicide department, a job he temporarily shares with his previous second-in-command, Jean-Guy Beauvoir. Flood waters are rising across the province. In the middle of the turmoil a father approaches Gamache, pleading for help in finding his daughterAs crisis piles upon crisis, Gamache tries to hold off the encroaching chaos, and realizes the search for Vivienne Godin should be abandoned. But with a daughter of his own, he finds himself developing a profound, and perhaps unwise, empathy for her distraught father.  Increasingly hounded by the question, how would you feel..., he resumes the search.  As the rivers rise, and the social media onslaught against Gamache becomes crueler, a body is discovered. And in the tumult, mistakes are made. In the next title in this "constantly surprising series that deepens and darkens as it evolves" (New York Times Book Review), Gamache must face a horrific possibility, and a burning question. What would you do if your child’s killer walked free?

Extra copies will be available at the circulation desk.
