Super Sad True Love Story for web.jpgGary Shteyngart, America's foremost satirical author, has once again struck gold with his third book Super Sad True Love Story. Shteyngart will discuss his novel, which looks into the future at a dystopian society, as part of AuthorsLive@GreenwichLibrary on Tuesday, September 28, at 7 p.m., in the Cole Auditorium.

 

Super Sad True Love Story a searing political satire, with a brilliantly-realized vision of a dismal near-future, where people stream their lives instead of living them, bank at AlliedWasteCVSCitigroupCredit, attend college at Tingshua-Columbia, and communicate in Images instead of words, which are so awfully hard to spell. But because this is Shteyngart, life in dystopian America is also a rollickingly funny, rich and humane as falling in love just may redeem a planet falling apart.

Greenwich High School student Grant Radulovacki's passion for the Civil War led him to create a documentary, Greenwich for the Union!, about the contributions of Greenwich soldiers to the Union's victory. The film will be screened on Saturday, September 25 at 2 p.m., in the Meeting Room.

Greenwich for the Union! (30 minutes) follows the most prominent Union regiment from Greenwich, the Tenth Connecticut Volunteers, from the eve of the Civil War to the surrender of General Robert E. Lee at Appomattox Court House. The documentary also highlights several notable Greenwich soldiers: Nicholas Fox, who was awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor, as well as Captain Frank Munford Kelly and Charles Bing. The video includes a tribute to the Greenwich African American soldiers who joined the 29th and 31st Connecticut Volunteer Infantry Regiments.

Greenwich Library Launches My First Library Card

"Having fun isn't hard when you've got a library card," Author Marc Brown, "Arthur's Library Song"

 Greenwich Library has launched My First Library card for babies and young children. September is National Library Card Sign-up Month, and Greenwich Library wants to make sure that your child has the smartest card of all - a library card.

Library cards were previously only available to children who were able to write their own names. Library staff hope to encourage reading at a critical stage in a child's development and studies show that children who are read to in the home and who regularly use the library perform better in school and are more likely to continue to use the library as a source of lifetime learning.
