CT AT WORK: A CT Humanities Initiative Presents a Scholar Led Book Discussion of Cannery Row by John Steinbeck

Visit the Hagaman Memorial Library, 227 Main Street, on Friday, May 9 at 3:00 p.m. for a scholar led book discussion on Cannery Row by John Steinbeck.

The discussion is sponsored by Connecticut Humanities, CT AT WORK Initiative. For more information about Connecticut Humanities and the CT AT WORK Initiative, please visit: www.cthumanities.org/ctatwork.

About Cannery Row:
Unburdened by the material necessities of the more fortunate, the denizens of Cannery Row discover rewards unknown in more traditional society. Henry the painter sorts through junk lots for pieces of wood to incorporate into the boat he is building, while the girls from Dora Floods bordello venture out now and then to enjoy a bit of sunshine. Lee Chong stocks his grocery with almost anything a man could want, and Doc, a young marine biologist who ministers to sick puppies and unhappy souls, unexpectedly finds true love. Cannery Row is just a few blocks long, but the story it harbors is suffused with warmth, understanding, and a great fund of human values.

First published in 1945, Cannery Row focuses on the acceptance of life as it is—both the exuberance of community and the loneliness of the individual. John Steinbeck draws on his memories of the real inhabitants of Monterey, California, and interweaves their stories in this world where only the fittest survive—creating what is at once one of his most humorous and poignant works. In Cannery Row, John Steinbeck returns to the setting of Tortilla Flat to create another evocative portrait of life as it is lived by those who unabashedly put the highest value on the intangibles—human warmth, camaraderie, and love.

The book discussion will be facilitated by lecturer and author David Garnes. David Garnes, writer, lecturer, and former teacher, served as head of acquisitions and reference librarian at the University of Connecticut Libraries at Storrs for 20 years. David is the author of the recently published novel, Waitin For The Train To Come In, a novel with a World War II setting; a book of essays, From My Life: Travels And Adventures; and After the War Was Over: Poems of an American Childhood. A house manager/tour guide at the Emily Dickinson Museum in Amherst, MA, David lectures frequently on literature and writing and also volunteers at a number of local arts venues.

This book discussion is second in a two part series of discussions sponsored by Connecticut Humanities CT AT WORK Initiative. The discussion is free and open to everyone. Books are available to borrow from the Library. Registration is required. Please register by visiting the Library, call us at 203.468.3890 or email Cynthia at cgwiazda@hagamanlibrary.org.

Additional parking for library events is available in the East Haven Town Hall parking lot across the street from the library or in the Old Stone Church lot adjacent to the library.

Special Local Author Event at the Hagaman Memorial Library Farms, Factories and Families: Italian American Women of Connecticut by Anthony Riccio

Visit the Hagaman Memorial Library, 227 Main Street, on *Saturday, May 3 at 2:00 p.m.*

and meet local author Anthony Riccio. Mr. Riccio is the author of The Italian American Experience in New Haven, published in 2006, and his newly published book is called Farms, Factories and Families: Italian American Women of Connecticut. Farms, Factories and Families documents the rich history of Italian American working women in Connecticut, including the crucial role they played in union organizing.

Farms, Factories and Families opens with the voices of elderly Italian American women, who reconstruct daily life in Italys southern regions at the turn of the twentieth century. Raised to be caretakers and nurturers of families, these women lived by the culturally claustrophobic dictates of a patriarchal society that offered them few choices. The storytellers of Farms, Factories, and Families reveal the trajectories of immigrant women who arrived in Connecticut with more than dowries in their steam trunks: the ability to face adversity with quiet inner strength, the stamina to work tirelessly from dawn to dusk, the skill to manage the family economy, and adherence to moral principles rooted in the southern Italian code of behavior. Second- and third-generation Italian American women who attended college and achieved professional careers on the wings of their Italian-born mothers and grandmothers have not forgotten their legacy, and though Italian American immigrant women lived by a script they did not write, Farms, Factories, and Families gives them the opportunity to tell their own stories, in their own words.

Mr. Riccio will read sections of Farms, Factories, and Families and discuss the research and interview process he used to write the book. Copies of his books will be for sale and signing following the presentation.

Anthony V. Riccio is Stacks Manager at the Sterling Memorial Library at Yale University. He is the author of The Italian American Experience in New Haven: Images and Oral Histories and Boston’s North End: Images and Recollections of an Italian-American Neighborhood, and the coauthor, with Silvio Suppa, of Cooking with Chef Silvio: Stories and Authentic Recipes from Campania, also published by SUNY Press.

This special event is free and open to everyone. Seating is limited, so please call today to reserve a space. Please visit the library, call 203.468.3890 or email Cynthia at cgwiazda@hagamanlibrary.org to register.

Additional parking for library events is available in the East Haven Town Hall parking lot across the street from the library or in the Old Stone Church lot adjacent to the library.

During your naturalization interview, a USCIS Officer will ask you questions about your application and background. You will also take an English and civics test unless you qualify for an exemption or waiver. The English test has three components: reading, writing, and speaking. The civics test covers important U.S. history and government topics. There are 100 civics questions on the naturalization test. During your naturalization interview, you will be asked up to 10 questions from the list of 100 questions. You must answer correctly at least six (6) of the 10 questions to pass the civics test. Practice studying for the naturalization test in your native language! Simply go to the Citizenship Resource Center Homepage at www.uscis.gov/citizenship, and click on Other Languages at the top right hand side of the page, then choose your native language!
