SPEED RACER

Sponsored by: Treasures from the Yale Film Archive

Buckle up for a free 35mm screening of SPEED RACER, starring Emile Hirsch in the title role. “This is a movie that is giddily, gorgeously overwhelming,” wrote critic Tom Maurstad, “from the cool slow-motion to the Kubrick cartoons to the wormhole pyrotechnics to the kaleidoscopic bliss.” Steven Rea said of this 2008 action-comedy from the Wachowskis, “SPEED RACER offers a crazy, turbo-charged mix of cartoon kitsch, gamer action, and a wild new way to think of—and look at—movies.” Christina Ricci, Matthew Fox, John Goodman, and Susan Sarandon co-star. 35mm print from the Yale Film Archive.

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.

Waiting for Guffman

Sponsored by: Treasures from the Yale Film Archive

Musical theater and mockumentary take center stage in WAITING FOR GUFFMAN, the 1996 ensemble comedy from director Christopher Guest. This “madcap gem” (in the words of Owen Gleibmerman) was described by Kenneth Turan as “a sly and gleeful comedy showcase that pokes clever fun at the American musical, amateur theatricals, and anything else that’s not nailed down.” The brilliant cast includes Guest, Eugene Levy, Catherine O’Hara, Fred Willard, Parker Posey, and Bob Balaban. 35mm print from the Yale Film Archive.

Vigor and Wisdom: Mendelssohn and Brahms

Sponsored by: Music Haven

For the final concert of the series, The Haven String Quartet will explore two works by the Romantic masters Brahms and Mendelssohn as well as share the stage with several graduating senior Music Haven students for a movement of Mendelssohn’s exuberant Octet, written when the composer was a mere 16 years old. Mendelssohn’s Quartet in D Major, Op. 44 No. 1, in contrast to the octet, highlights Mendelssohn’s later style; his energetic themes and development, his puckish scherzos and incidental music, and his memorable and poignant lyricism. The concert will also feature Music Haven Resident Violinist Patrick Doane on Brahms’ Viola Quintet in G Major, Op. 111, a masterwork known for its soaring opening cello melody, orchestral textures, melancholic slow movement, and folk-inspired finale. Though Brahms went on to write several more chamber and piano works, it was the quintet in G Major he intended to be his last.

Edward Sklepowich presents at Derby Public Library

Sponsored by: Derby Public Library

Edward Sklepowich, fiction writer and university professor, grew up in Derby, a few streets away from the Derby Public Library. He attended Derby public schools and graduated from Notre Dame High School in West Haven. Mr. Sklepowich will share childhood and adolescent memories of The Derby Public Library, which had a formative influence on his life and set him on the path of his fiction-writing, travels, and pursuit of literature as a career.

“So much began for me at The Derby Public Library. My presentation is a small way of trying to repay a huge debt.”

His series of nine books, The Urbino Macintyre Mysteries, is set in Venice, featuring an expatriate American amateur sleuth. The New York Times Book Review, Publishers Weekly, and The Chicago Tribune have praised the series as “thoroughly civilized,” “seductive,” and “elegant.”

Edward received three Fulbright grants to North Africa and taught in Italy, Egypt, and Algeria before his current teaching position in Tunisia. Since the 1990s he has been senior professor of American and Anglophone Literature at the University of Tunisia in the Mediterranean town of Sousse. He divides his time between Tunisia and Italy, the country of his maternal heritage.

Space is limited to so registration is required online beginning April 8 or by calling the Reference Desk at 203-736-1482.

Lewis Beilman Author Talk

Sponsored by: New Haven Free Public Library

Please join us at 3pm in G-Cafe at the New Haven Free Public Library Main Branch for an author talk with Lewis Beilman. Mr. Beilman will be doing a reading of his new collection of short stories “The Changing Tide”.

The Changing Tide includes ten short stories and a novella. The works represent several visions of a changing United States and feature characters who either embrace or reject the changes they experience. Issues addressed include immigration, racial and ethnic divisions, and sexual identity, among others. For example, in “Amigos,” a former Connecticut factory worker is on suicide watch in a hospital after his wife’s death. His interaction with a Peruvian janitor helps him to sweep away his anger and bigotry. Another story, “Movement,” which is featured in the 2018 Adelaide Voices Literary Award Anthology, focuses on an interracial family that becomes lost while visiting Brooklyn on the Fourth of July. A close call in an unfamiliar neighborhood causes the family members to assess their views on authority and race relations. And, in “Nude Beach,” a young woman indulges her boyfriend’s desire to visit Miami’s Haulover Beach on his birthday. There, a memory and a chance occurrence spark her to question her sexuality. Some of the stories reach firm conclusions, while others end enigmatically—but all are intended to appeal to a reader’s sense of empathy without being maudlin or dogmatic.

Copies of “The Changing Tide” will be available for purchase and signing, but the event itself is free to the public.

Climate Week 2019

Sponsored by: New Haven Leon Sister City Project

Climate Health Education Project (CHEP) is a project that broadens climate change awareness and engages in concrete action to cut greenhouse gases, improve health, and reduce energy use and expense in New Haven area schools. CHEP is also a comprehensive web resource that schools can use throughout the year to plan, create, and lead activities that will motivate students and teachers to act on climate change.
Climate change has rising impacts on hurricanes, forest fire season, droughts, the rising of sea levels, and ocean acidification. CHEP pulled together a variety of activities that can be easily incorporated into classrooms and schools. The website also includes activity options: information tables, guest speakers, assemblies, climate change awareness fairs, writing contests, banner-making contests, classroom activities, and Earth Olympics.. Schools are also encouraged to come up with their own activities, as they know their school environment best. The activities done by the students and teachers will educate them about present and future impacts of climate disruptions, help explore why it’s urgent to take action now, and also will teach each other about how to cut greenhouse gas emissions, create healthier families and communities, and improve energy independence.
We are planning for Climate Week to be the week of April 27th to May 4th, 2019, and are inviting all New Haven area high schools to plan special climate change activities. We would love to hear about new suggestions or recommendations for activities. The activities can range from English to Social Studies to Science to Art activities. For new ideas and more information on Climate Health Education Project (CHEP) or Climate Week please visit https://www.climateeducationnh.org/ or contact climateeducationnh@gmail.com. Let’s do this before it’s too late!

Classic DEEP Purple Live Performed by Glenn Hughes

Sponsored by: Wall Street Theater

Glenn Hughes, former bassist and singer of Deep Purple, known to millions as the ‘Voice of Rock’, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, and the current front man for rock super group Black Country Communion is pleased to announce that he will be performing Deep Purple only material with his “GLENN HUGHES PERFORMS CLASSIC DEEP PURPLE LIVE” nationwide US tour in August-Sept. 2018.

The tour promises to be dynamic, a turn-back-the-clocks, two-hour live extravaganza homage to his tenure in MK 3 and MK 4 incarnations of Deep Purple - one of music history’s most seminal and influential rock and roll groups. All tour dates will be announced shortly. With a Facebook following of a quarter million fans

As well as Glenn on lead vocals and bass guitar, the touring band also features Soren Anderson (guitar), Jesper Bo Hansen (keyboards) and Fernando Escobedo (drums)

Deep Purple took a quantum leap when the then 20-year-old Glenn Hughes was seconded from British funk-rock outfit Trapeze in mid-1973. As bassist and co-vocalist (with David Coverdale), he helped steer the legendary rock group in the progressive direction of Burn (1974), Stormbringer (1974) and Come Taste the Band (1975), while touring the world for three years.

His solo debut album Play Me Out (1977) preceded later albums with Black Sabbath and Gary Moore. The last 25 years have seen a rush of solo work and collaborations for the ‘Voice of Rock’ including mega hit America: What Time Is Love? with the KLF in 1992, appearances with Joe Satriani / G3 and four critically acclaimed top selling studio albums released between 2010 and 2018 with rock super group Black Country Communion featuring Joe Bonamassa, Derek Sherinian & Jason Bonham. Glenn was also inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 20l6 as a member of Deep Purple.

Taking a page and inspiration from the Blackmore/Coverdale/Hughes/Lord/Paice Deep Purple MK 3 California Jam and Made in Europe era, the upcoming live show features the Purple classics Burn, Stormbringer, Might Just Take Your Life and Mistreated, amongst others, plus tracks previously never performed live by the original MK 3 line-up.

Classic material from the Tommy Bolin MK 4 period is also featured, including Getting’ Tighter – Hughes’ funk rock extravaganza extraordinaire, plus the brooding Coverdale /Hughes masterpiece You Keep On Moving.

Deep Purple MK 2 hits Highway Star and Smoke on the Water are also featured, because, as Glenn points out, ‘’I did play both these numbers during my time with Purple and they were mainstays of the live set when I was in the band. As my manager pointed out to me, the first time Smoke on The Water was ever played live at Madison Square Garden was when David and I were in the band in 1974. I love singing Highway Star, too.”

Continues Glenn, “A few years back, I cut a barnstorming version of Highway Star for the Machine Head anniversary tribute album with my good friends Steve Vai and Chad Smith. I’m not playing anything on the forthcoming tour that I didn’t either play live or record in the studio with Purple.”

On Thursday, April 18 from 6-7:30pm, Chaudhri will present a lecture that examines aspiration and its alternate, exploring how a low-res image of a city might act as an insurgent to undermine the expectation of a “worlding” image.
