Hauntings in Connecticut: An Evening with Lorraine Warren

Wednesday, October 6th at 7:00 p.m. in the Community Room

For over fifty years Lorraine Warren and her late husband Ed have been considered America's preeminent experts on the subject of spirits and demonology. Over the years the Warrens have been called upon by religious authorities to control some of the most profane outbreaks of diabolical phenomena in the country. They have studied cases where priests become possessed, where people are physically attacked, where time is violated and the physical environment is completely rearranged. And in some cases where spirits don't just haunt a house, they visibly tear it apart.

Here is your chance to meet Lorraine Warren and hear her account of several of her and Ed’s experiences during their long careers as demonologists.

Please register in person, online, or by phone at (203)265-6754.

Friday Night Flicks Presents: Robin Hood

Friday, September 24th at 6:30 p.m. in the Community Room

Robin Hood movie posterCast aside all notions of men in tights: Ridley Scott's Robin Hood is decidedly earthier and more grown-up than most romps through Sherwood Forest. The presence of the over-40 Russell Crowe and Cate Blanchett cinches the deal. Rated: PG-13

Author Event: Christine M. Whitehead

Thursday, September 30th at 6:30 p.m. in the Community Room

From the author: “Tell Me When It Hurts can be read literally as the tale of a mother struggling to go on despite her daughter’s murder. The broader theme however is how we all struggle to regain traction when so much is pressing us every day to skid. Intense therapy, compulsive work, angry revenge, fervent religious faith, binge drinking—all can help us get through uneven days and menacing nights. Ultimately, though, we each chose our own path, be it self-destructive or redeeming. The book is, above all, about choices, second chances, and consequences.”

All are welcome to hear firsthand how the author was able to write this gripping story.

Christine M. Whitehead is a graduate of Smith College and the University of Connecticut Law School. She lives on a farm in the Hartford area and practices divorce law in Hartford. This is her first book.
