Talks on the Road: Celebrating 300 Years of CT's Remarkable Women

The music, life and legacy of Wolfgang Amade' Mozart continue to fascinate and enthrall.  Who was Mozart? Of course, we all know his music, that rich and deep trove of ineffable melodies from his symphonies, operas, chamber and sacred works that is an essential part of western civilization. The wonderful play and movie, "Amadeus," have introduced Mozart's music to millions. Yet, much of Mozart's life remains dotted with questions, falsehood and hyperbole. Join Dr. Vincent de Luise for a fascinating look at Mozart: the man, his life,  and his wondrous musical legacy.

Bring a blanket, a pillow, wear your pjs, and come enjoy the movie! 

Ferdinand is a young bull who escapes from a training camp in rural Spain after his father never returns from a showdown with a matador. Adopted by a girl who lives on a farm, Ferdinand's peaceful existence comes crashing down when the authorities return him to his former captors. With help from a wisecracking goat and three hedgehogs, the giant but gentle bovine must find a way to break free before he squares off against El Primero, the famous bullfighter who never loses.

As always there is no admission but a suggested donation of a non perishable food item or toiletry to assist the Woodbury Food Bank would be appreciated!

Leading up to the program, the Woodbury Library will be hosting "We Fight for Roses, Too" an exhibit created by the Connecticut Women's Hall of Fame. The exhibit is dedicated to the stories, struggles and achievements of the Inductees, women who have shaped the culture and society of Connecticut and the nation. Rather than focus solely on the photographs of each of the inductees, this exhibit showcases images that highlight the struggle of each woman's actions as a means of further reminding audiences that the quest for women's equality has not been an easy battle.

On Site at the Woodbury Public Library and Woodbury Senior Community Center

Be inspired as you learn about well-known figures like Ella Grasso, Katharine Hepburn and Marian Anderson and lesser known heroines like Maria Sanchez, Barbara McClintock and Hannah Watson. The presentation will also introduce participants to the Connecticut Women's Hall of Fame, its mission and programs, and give you a panoramic view of some of its 118 Inductees from across all fields of endeavor, from politics and sports to the arts and sciences.
