2019 Litchfield House Tour and Garden Stroll

Sponsored by: The Litchfield Aid of the Connecticut Junior Republic

A historic Open House Tour on July 12 and 13, 2019 is being planned by The Litchfield Aid of the Connecticut Junior Republic (CJR).  The Aid’s Sixty-Seventh Open House Day will be a one-mile walking tour within the Borough of Litchfield, a National Historic Landmark District.*  The Tour will benefit the CJR, a Litchfield-based non-profit organization that helps children, youth and families in 13 locations across Connecticut.
The rain or shine benefit will begin with a Preview Tour and Party on Friday, July 12, followed by a tour from 10 AM to 5 PM on Saturday, July 13.  The 2019 event will feature nine notable homes, the majority of which are located on Litchfield’s stately North and South Streets.  Representative of Litchfield’s 300-year history, the tour will feature houses that date from a relocated 1685 Saltbox and will take guests through three centuries, ending with a stunning 1954 Marcel Breuer Mid-Century Modern home. The homes on tour, including Georgian, Greek Revival, Colonial, Victorian-Italianate, and of course the prevailing Litchfield Colonial Revival style, have been selected to capture over 300 years of village life and architectural interest in the thriving, vibrant center of Northwestern Connecticut.  Further details about the event will be announced later this year. 
Established in 1911 by a small group of Litchfield women, The Litchfield Aid of CJR has supported the programs and facilities of the Connecticut Junior Republic for more than 100 years and currently has nearly 100 members.  The Aid conducted an annual Litchfield House Tour for 66 years, between the summers of 1934 and 2013.  During 2014 and 2017, the Aid conducted other successful local events. Since its inception, The Litchfield Aid’s activities have netted in excess of $2.5 million to support CJR programs and services.
* The Borough of Litchfield, Connecticut reflects over 300 years of American history throughout the structures comprising the Borough and its Historic District. In 1959, the entire Borough was designated a Historic District by a special act of the Connecticut General Assembly. Later, the Litchfield Historic District and several buildings received even more prestigious designations as National Historic Landmarks, the highest recognition for culturally and historically significant sites in the U.S.
Media releases later this year will provide further details on The Litchfield Aid’s Tercentennial Open House Day.  For promotional opportunities in advance of next year’s Open House event,  please contact Hedy Barton at the number below.
Founded in 1904, the Connecticut Junior Republic (CJR) provides residential and community-based care, treatment, education and family support for vulnerable at-risk, special needs and troubled young people so they may become productive and fulfilled members of their homes, schools and communities.  Today, the organization’s combined programs serve approximately 2,000 boys and girls annually in 13 locations throughout Connecticut.
A private charitable organization, the Connecticut Junior Republic is accredited by the Council on Accreditation (COA) and the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC).  CJR is supported by gifts from individuals, businesses, foundations and organizations, and through service contracts funded by the Judicial Branch Court Support Services Division (JBCSSD), the Connecticut Department of Children and Families (DCF), the Connecticut Department of Social Services (DSS), and by Connecticut’s public schools.  For further information on CJR’s programs, please contact Hedy Barton, Director of Development and Public Relations (860) 567-9423, extension 252; or by email: hbarton@cjryouth.org.

Werner Herzog’s ENCOUNTERS AT THE END OF THE WORLD

Sponsored by: Treasures from the Yale Film Archive

Beat the summer heat with a trip to the McMurdo Station in Antarctica by means of Werner Herzog’s ENCOUNTERS AT THE END OF THE WORLD. Shot as part of the National Science Foundation’s Antarctic Artists and Writers Program, this Oscar-nominated documentary is dedicated to Roger Ebert, who described it as “a poem of oddness and beauty. Herzog is like no other filmmaker, and to return to him is to be welcomed into a world vastly larger and more peculiar than the one around us.” Critic Mark Oslen remarked, “The images captured by Herzog and cinematographer Peter Zeitlinger are dazzling all on their own, finding the disorienting psychedelia that is nature at its weirdest.” 35mm print from the Yale Film Archive.

Author Talk with Tony Renzoni: ‘Connecticut Rock ‘N’ Roll: A History’

Sponsored by: Derby Public Library

Long neglected in the annals of American music, the Nutmeg State’s influence on the history of rock ’n’ roll deserves recognition. Connecticut’s musical highlights include the beautiful harmonies of New Haven’s Five Satins, Gene Pitney’s rise to fame, Stamford’s the Fifth Estate and notable rockers such as Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth, Rivers Cuomo of Weezer and Saturday Night Live Band’s Christine Ohlman. Rock Hall of Famers include Tina Weymouth and Chris Frantz of the Talking Heads and Dennis Dunaway of the Alice Cooper Band. Some events became legend, like Jimi Hendrix’s spellbinding performance at Yale’s Woolsey Hall, Jim Morrison’s onstage arrest at the New Haven Arena and teenage Bob Dylan’s appearance at Branford’s Indian Neck Folk Festival.

With in-depth interviews as well as rare, never- before-seen photos, author Tony Renzoni leads a sonic trip that captures the spirit and zenith of the local scene in Connecticut Rock ’N’ Roll: A History.
A graduate of Sacred Heart University, Tony Renzoni is a rock ’n’ roll enthusiast and an avid collector of rock memorabilia, amassing a record collection of over ten thousand vinyl records. He has authored over one thousand weekly guest columns published in the Connecticut Post newspaper and website. During a thirty-eight-year career with the federal government, many as a district manager in Fairfield County, Tony was a recipient of more than forty awards, including his agency’s highest honor award.

Copies of Connecticut Rock ’N’ Roll: A History will be available for purchase/signing for $23.39 at the event. Space is limited so registration is required beginning June 11 online or by calling the Reference Desk at 203-736-1482.

http://hiddenwomen.org/website/


Joan was born into slavery to a deaf and mute mother, Maria. Maria would be owned by the Fox family. Maria would meet and marry John Jackson. They would wed and have two children, Adam and Miriam.

John would eventually be free and then purchase Joan’s freedom. But because she was a slave when their children were born, they would have to leave the children behind.  Due to a dispute between the Fox and Beebe families, Joan would be kidnapped and put back into slavery.

As Joan Jackson, Tammy will tell you about an ‘Unchained Love’ filled with twists and turns, heartache, deception and an undying love.


Your ticket to the Silver Tea includes tea sandwiches, baked goods, beverages and entry into our door prize drawing.  There will also be a raffle with over 40 prizes; tickets for this may be purchased, at an additional cost, during the event.

Bird Walk and Book Signing with Frank Gallo

Sponsored by: Milford Public Library

Frank Gallo loves birds.  He is a leading expert on where to find birds in Connecticut and has led birding expeditions all over the world. Gallo is a tour leader for Sunrise Birding, LLC, an international birding tour company, is a member of the Connecticut Avian Rare Records Committee, and a federally licensed master bird bander.  He is also the author of two children’s nature books, Bird Calls and Night Sounds, and is a published freelance photographer.
Gallo will be leading a bird walk on June 27 at 6:30pm.  Meet at Milford Public Library, 57 New Haven Ave. for this free walk. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes and bring binoculars.  After the walk, get some refreshments at Milford Library, and listen to Gallo talk about his newest book, Birding in Connecticut.  It is the definitive guide to where, when, and how to find birds in the state. The book is packed with information valuable to birders of all skill levels, from species accounts and a first-of-a kind cumulative list of rare bird sightings, to a host of tips and tricks to finding and identifying birds. It is an invaluable resource on the habits and habitats of Connecticut’s birdlife, with clear and up-to-date bar graphs showing seasonal occurrence and abundance for every Connecticut bird species.  It is suitable for novices and experienced birders alike.

June Lunchtime Book Discussion

Sponsored by: Derby Public Library

The novel is based on the true story of a labor and delivery nurse who was prohibited from caring for a newborn because the father requested that no African-American nurses tend to his baby. A medical crisis results in the infant’s death and a murder charge against a black nurse named Ruth Jefferson.  Jodi Picoult tackles race, privilege, prejudice, justice, and compassion—and doesn’t offer easy answers. Using the narratives of Ruth, the baby’s father, and the female public defender who takes Ruth’s case, Picoult examines multiple facets of racism. Small Great Things is an important and thought-provoking novel about power and prejudice that deserves to be read, digested, and shared with others.

Viola Davis and Julia Roberts will star in the soon to be released movie version.

Multiple copies are available at the main circulation desk.

Lunchtime Book Discussions are held the last Wednesday of the month and are free and open to the public.  No registration is required.

Conference | Full of Your Glory: Liturgy, Cosmos, Creation

Sponsored by: Yale Institute of Sacred Music

The conference will explore ideas of creation and cosmos embedded in the worship life of the church at a time of unprecedented attention to ecological and cosmological concerns. Conference speakers will highlight some of the rich traditions of the past (ritual, visual, and musical, among others) and also address contemporary concerns.  The broader aim of the conference is to offer the resources of the liturgical tradition—and its particular insights—to the ongoing conversations around ecology and cosmology. It will become clear that liturgy has always been about more than human beings at worship: specific understandings of creation and the cosmos are in fact at the heart of all Christian worship.

Conference schedule and speakers list forthcoming.

Art historian and painter Jonathan Weinberg will engage Anahita Vossoughi in a conversation around her new body of work in the solo exhibition Beige Thick Golden Glue.  Together, they will discuss the influences that underpin Vossoughi’s practice, and explore the ways romanticism has historically given way to Orientalism, fetishism and a male dominant language of desire.  Vossoughi’s sculptures and mixed media collages reference Hans Bellmer’s La Poupée (1934), a life-sized female fetish doll made of wood, flax fiber, plaster, glue, and scant clothing, and German Romanticist Wilhelm von Gloeden’s (1856 –1931) nude photographs of boys and young men of Mediterranean descent.

The ukiyo-e presentation and art workshop will pay homage to this unique Japanese art form and Francis Osborne Kellogg’s collection of ukiyo-e woodblock prints. Come learn about the history of ukiyo-e and how to make your own
ukiyo-e—inspired art. The workshop is appropriate for all ages.  All materials will be supplied, and there will be no fee. After the workshop, visitors can go to the museum to view the collection of Japanese prints and Asian-influenced artwork.  Visitors can also explore the beautiful gardens surrounding the museum.
 
Connecticut Open House Day is sponsored by the Connecticut Office of Tourism (COT) and is designed to broaden awareness among residents of Connecticut’s exceptional art, culture, and history.  This special day encourages residents to become ambassadors who share their newfound discoveries with visiting family and friends.  The Kellogg Environmental Center and Osborne Homestead Museum, operated by the Department of Energy and Environmental Protection, are located off Route 34 on 500 Hawthorne Avenue in Derby, CT.   Space for the workshop is limited so please call (203) 734-2513 or email donna.kingston@ct.gov to register or for more information.

Located at 325 Lighthouse Road, in New Haven, the Pardee-Morris House dates from about 1780, and is listed on the State and National Register of Historic Places. Built by Amos Morris around 1750, the house was burned by the British during their raid on New Haven in 1779 and rebuilt and expanded by the Morris family. In 1918, William S. Pardee, a descendant of the Morris family, willed the property to the New Haven Colony Historical Society, today the New Haven Museum.
