Saturday, January 12th at 1 pm

Nicholas Bellantoni  the author of The Long Journeys Home: The Repatriations of Henry

Saturday, February 9th at 1 pm 

 John Cilio author of Women’s Work in WWII, tells the epic story of an era when American men went off to war and the majority of women remained behind to care for families and fill the enormous production roles left vacant. Through a large collection of anecdotal stories and a broad collection of vintage photographs he highlights a desperate time in America. The country needed all of the war materials it was capable of producing but American men were being drafted by the millions. Its untested women initially joined the workforce with the mission to help their country and their loved ones in the war. What they accomplished changed America forever.

Saturday, March 16th at 1 pm 

Mary Donohue, the co-author of “A Life of the Land: Connecticut’s Jewish Farmers,” will describe how The Jewish Agricultural Society in New York began an effort in the 1880s to settle some of the new European immigrants on farms in Connecticut. One area the society chose was centered around Colchester, Lebanon, and Montville. The story of these families and how they owned, worked the farms for generations, and developed the resorts of Moodus will be the subject of the talk.

Donohue is the Asst. Publisher of Connecticut Explored magazine and president of Grant House Heritage Services, a full-service historic preservation consulting firm.
