  Art Show through March 4th

            Judith Secco

The Sherman Library is pleased to announce the art exhibit of fine art photographer Judith Secco of Bantam, CT.  The exhibit runs through February 5th. 

Judith, a native of Connecticut’s Northwest corner, has been an avid self-taught photographer all of her life.  She began with an in-home darkroom focusing mainly on black and white images, later realizing a passion for digital photography developing her own technique using textures and layers. She gives her images a unique quality, enhancing nature’s beauty with an artist’s eye, bringing nature to life.

Shooting a variety of subjects, Judith’s work finds its balance between photography and fine art.  She has won numerous awards for her work, which has been shown throughout New England.

Adult Book Discussion

Friday, February 19 at 7:30 p.m.

How to Live by Sarah Bakewell

Discussion led by Corinne Kevorkian

HOW TO LIVE, OR A LIFE OF MONTAIGNE IN ONE QUESTION AND TWENTY ATTEMPTS AT AN ANSWER by Sarah Bakewell.  (2010, 416 pp.) Led by Corinne Kevorkian. How to get along with people, how to deal with violence, how to adjust to losing someone you love--these are all part of a bigger question: how do you live? The subject fascinated Michel Eyquem de Montaigne, who explored it in his writing for much of his life (he died in 1592).  This charming biography captures his wry, humane, curious spirit in twenty thematic chapters, offering readers a unique portrait of a man who wrote like “'a naturalist on a field trip into the human soul.” It won the National Book Critics Circle Award for Biography in 2010.


Everyone is welcomed to enjoy a lively discussion and refreshments! Copies of the books are available at the library. For more information contact the library 860-354-2455 or
