Dr. Beth Russell, Assistant Professor of Human Development and Family Relations at the UConn College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, will give a basic overview of how our ability to face stress and cope changes over time, starting in early childhood and progressing through adolescence and adulthood. Together we will consider the challenges families face when a child or parent is struggling with a particular stressor and how each individual has developmental needs and skills that can be supported to make it through tough times. Presented by the American Association of University Women and the University of Connecticut.

Celebrate National Poetry Month and the 5th anniversary of our poetry group Saturday Mornings with Poetry!
Relax in a cafe setting for an afternoon of poetry readings, music, and refreshments brought to you and inspired by our local community. Poetry has always been a more intimate affair than prose, and the best way to experience it is to see it performed in person. Please join us in congratulating SMwP on their 5th anniversary and hear local poets performing their poems in an intimate and relaxing venue. Music and refreshments will add to the festive atmosphere.
