Experience the flamboyant style of carousel and architectural carving created by the Jewish immigrant carvers at the turn of the 20th century.

6 – 7pm: Authors Event: East Windsor by Ceil Donahue & Jessica Bottomley The town of East Windsor, incorporated in 1768, is situated in the center of northern Connecticut, with the Connecticut River as its western border. In the early 1600s, a few settlers crossed the “great river” to establish farms. East Windsor’s rich and productive farmland served them well. Five distinct villages, each historically different, highlight the rich and diverse heritage of the town. Warehouse Point, with its proximity to the river, was a vital shipping and transportation hub. Scantic was started by a strong religious community devoted to God and families. Broad Brook had access to the millpond, which spurred the prosperous Broad Brook Company woolen mill. Melrose, established by farming families, is rooted in its agrarian past. Windsorville’s location on the banks of Ketch Brook triggered villagers to build a dam and erect mills. Through it all ran the trolley line, which linked the villages and town with the surrounding area. Book Club Bookstore & More, South Windsor

1 – 2pm: Exotic Brews and Splendid Silver Learn about silver and the history of tea and coffee culture When tea, coffee and chocolate were introduced to the West in the 17th century, they revolutionized drinking habits. The high cost of these exotic beverages and their popularity in Europe’s royal courts necessitated that the vessels for these exclusive drinks should be equally rare – and thus they became the domain of the silversmith. This lecture by Jennifer Pitman, from RAGO, a leading auction house based in New Jersey, traces the history of silver tea and coffee wares from their introduction through the 20th century and highlights the works of the most preeminent English and American silversmiths. Also included is an introduction to understanding silver hallmarks. Hill-Stead Museum, Farmington
