Cookbook Club ~ Virtual Gathering for Adults 21+

America's Test Kitchen Book CoverWith the library temporarily closed, we've decided on a new place for the Cookbook Club: Your place!  :)

Adults age 21+ are welcome to meet virtually for a non-traditional Cookbook Club discussion on Zoom. BYOB ... or wine!

We will start by sharing what we've chosen to cook, and any tips or challenges we had to overcome. This month's pick is to make a dish from the America’s Test Kitchen Blog! Feel free to pick any America’s Test Kitchen recipe, either online or if you have one of the cookbooks at home! Pick any recipe, whether it’s a dessert, main course or side dish.  As we do not want anyone to make special grocery store trips at this time, whatever you have in the house or planned in with your regular grocery shopping trip is fine!

This hybrid, contemporary style melds elements of American and European folk with jazz and blues shadings; underpinned by subtle ambient electronics. Peter began focusing on performing original solo instrumentals beginning in 2000. The music is now being presented virtually from his home until further notice. Peter will be focusing on new pieces as well as material from his latest live recording  "Say What?" – on a variety of guitars in unique tunings. The program encourages questions from the audience and will also include some of the history and evolution of steel string guitar playing over the last 60+ years. Fans of fellow guitarists such as Michael Hedges, the British school (Bert Jansch, John Renbourn, Davy Graham), Alex de Grassi and John Martyn will enjoy this music.

Christmas in the Colonies ~ Virtual Program for Adults

Apple PeelerValya and Ehris UrbanChristmas in the New England colonies was, for the most part, just another day. Celebrating Christmas was outlawed in most of New England. Puritans and Protestants detested the entire celebration and likened it to “pagan rituals.” But some colonists enjoyed an array of festivities, such as singing carols, decorating their homes and hosting feasts. Join Velya and Ehris, the mother/daughter Grounded Goodwife duo, for:  a DIY apple cinnamon sugar scrub   apple peel throwing (to determine your spouse)   apple seed prophecies and   a group wassail carol. A list of supplies needed for the program will be provided following registration. Space is limited, so registration is requested beginning November 5, online or at the Reference desk at 860-652-7720. Registration with a valid email address is required in order to receive login information on the day of the Zoom meeting.

She became interested in Reiki as a teenager and attained Reiki Master certification at age 17. Ehris is also a certified Ingham Method reflexologist. A graduate of Western Connecticut State University with a B.A. in Anthropology/Sociology, she is also a certified ESL teacher. Velya Jancz-Urban lives her life by the adage, “there is no growth without change.” Zany and gregarious, she is a teacher, author, former Brazilian dairy farm owner and "herstory unsanitized" expert.
