Pearl Street Centennial Celebration – Book Discussions through the Decades

Date of Program:  Monday, March 3, 2014 at 7:00 PM at the Pearl Street Branch Library

2014 marks The Pearl Street Branch Library’s 100th Anniversary!  Please join us in our year long Pearl Street Branch Centennial Celebration.

The provocative series, “Book Discussions through the Decades,” continues with The Private Life of Helen of Troy (1926) by John Erskine on Monday, March 3rd at 7:00 PM at the Pearl Street Branch Library.  The novel takes place after the events in the Iliad, with Menelaus bringing Helen back to Sparta after sparing her life at the behest of Agamemnon.  Special guest facilitator, Laura Hayden, is an author, writer, and teacher at Asnuntuck Community College and Western Connecticut State University.  She received her MFA in Writing at Western Connecticut State University in 2010.  Refreshments will be served at the discussion and copies of the book are available for check-out at either library location.

Additionally, the Centennial Anniversary Committee have planned numerous events for the exciting year ahead, among them: a birthday party, a town-wide scavenger hunt with a 100 year theme, a marble tournament, a visit from Kandie Karle-the Edwardian Lady, “meet Andrew Carnegie”-with Richard Clark, an outdoor movie, a time capsule, special displays, and much more!  Be on the lookout for event listings via email, press, library signage, and our library web page.

All programs at the Pearl Street Branch Library and Enfield Public Library are free and all are welcome.  To register for upcoming programs and events, please visit the Circulation Desk at either library, or call 860-253-6433 (Pearl Street Branch Library) or 860-763-7512 (Enfield Public Library).   For further information, you may also email the Anniversary Committee at: PearlStreetLibrary100@gmail.com, or visit the library webpage: www.enfieldpubliclibrary.org.
