  • | 8:00am - 8:30pm | Library Events, Paula McLain
    - Wednesday, June 1 Wilton Reads: Author Visit—Paula McLain: Circling the Sun, 7 – 8:30 p.m. The New York Times bestselling author Paula McLain visits Wilton Library to discuss her historical novel, Circling the Sun, for the culminating event in the community-wide Wilton Reads program. The novel was a New York Times bestseller and named one of the best books of the year by NPR, Bookpage, and Shelf Awareness. Clearly ahead of her time, Beryl Markham, the strong female lead in this novel, earned her license as a racehorse trainer by the age of eighteen, became one of the first few people in Africa to have a commercial pilot’s license and became the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic (from east to west) in 1936. From her untamed childhood, to her many struggles to achieve the freedom she always dreamed of, and finally to the love that tested and changed her life forever, in Circling the Sun, this inspiring, brave and complicated woman is brought to life again by McLain in this powerful novel. Paula McLain is the author of the novels The Paris Wife and A Ticket to Ride, and the memoir Like Family: Growing Up in Other People’s Houses. She has received fellowships from Yaddo, the MacDowell Colony, and the National Endowment for the Arts. She lives in Cleveland with her family. Ms. McLain will be presented with the Grodin Family Fine Writers Award before her talk. Registration is strongly recommended. There is no charge for the program. Books will be available for purchase and signing courtesy of Elm Street Books. Wilton Library, 137 Old Ridgefield Road, Wilton; http://www.wiltonlibrary.org; (203) 762-3950.

  • | 12:00pm - 4:00pm | Arts and Entertainment, multimedia exhibit with photographs,
    - A new multimedia exhibit with photographs, costumes, artifacts, and music will explore the fascinating and tumultuous decade of the 1960s. Demolish or Preserve: The 1960s at the Lockwood-Mathews Mansion, curated by Kathleen Motes Bennewitz will open on May 4, 2016 and run through Nov. 20, 2016. Opening Reception: May 12, 2016, 5:30-7:30 p.m. – $10 for non-members $5 for members.

    It is impossible to remember the 1960s without thinking of Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin landing on the moon, the Beatles arriving in the United States, the Civil Rights Movement, the Vietnam War and—most hauntingly—the assassinations of John F. Kennedy and Martin Luther King. Against this backdrop of turbulent cultural change and social unrest, was the nation’s modern urban planning, which included the demolition of historic neighborhoods and irreplaceable buildings.

    This exhibition will explore the fascinating and ground-breaking decade of the 1960s and the Mansion’s connections to the revolutionary preservation battles and new landmark statutes of the era. It will also honor the museum’s 50th Anniversary as it celebrates the bands of locals, led by the Junior League of Stamford-Norwalk, Inc. and the Common Interest Group, who fought to save the Mansion and secure its status as a National Historic Landmark in 1971.

    With Europe’s ongoing legacy of artistic and historic preservation and reuse as a model, in the 1960s concerned citizens brought national attention to the need for saving from demolition historically and architecturally significant structures in America. Jackie Kennedy, using her stature and influence, restored the White House’s historic interiors; and just as the grand mansions of Fifth Avenue and Newport were slated for demolition, here in Norwalk LeGrand Lockwood’s Civil War era palatial residence was faced with a similar fate. Recognizing that the demolition of this structure would be a great loss to the city, state, and nation, concerned citizens galvanized to save the mansion in one the most important and hard fought preservation battles in Connecticut’s history.

    The Museum’s 2016 cultural and educational programs are made possible in part by generous funding from LMMM’s Founding Patrons: The Estate of Mrs. Cynthia Clark Brown, and the Museum’s Distinguished Benefactors: Klaffs, The Xerox Foundation, and The Maurice Goodman Foundation.

    General Admission: Wed-Sun, 12-4 p.m., $10 for adults, $8 for seniors, $6, 8-18. The Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum is a National Historic Landmark.

    Birds and bees are essential pollinators of gardens. On display are historical rare books on bees and birds from the 1700s to present day, including our double elephant Audubon book (40 in x 27 in), which documents North American birds and was printed in a limited edition of 70.

    The exhibition chronicles the history of bee-keeping in America and examines its important historic figures and bee-keeping techniques.

    Visitors may contribute family recipes that contain honey (these recipes will be scanned and available online). In addition, a limited edition (250 copies) will be printed and made available.

    Examples from Pequot Library's Special Collections include:
