    All 2012 Library summer programming is being made possible through the generous sponsorship of the Jane C. and David B. Cohen Fund through the Valley Community Foundation in memory of David B. Cohen.

Debut novel talk topic

    At 12:30 p.m. June 27 the Library will host the next Lunchtime Book Discussion.

    In her witty and wise debut novel, newcomer Helen Simonson introduces an unforgettable Englishman in Major Pettigrew’s Last Stand.
    The story centers around Pettigrew’s fight to keep his greedy relatives from selling a valuable family heirloom – a pair of hunting rifles that symbolizes much of what he stands for, or at least what he thinks he stands for.  It is a wry, yet optimistic comedy of manners with a romantic twist. 
    Multiple copies of the book are available at the circulation desk. 
  Participants are asked to bring a sandwich and a friend as they “chat and chew.” Dessert and beverages will be provided.
    Registration is requested.
    For information on both programs, stop by the Library at 313 Elizabeth St. or call 203-736-1482 or visit
