Short Attention Span Literary Club

July 10, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

If you like the idea of a book club but are worried about the time commitment, this group is for you! We meet every couple of months and discuss short stories that have a connection to our exhibits and collections.

For our July meeting, we’ll read and discuss James Thurber’s classic “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.” This hilarious story of a beaten-down underachiever is set in 1930s Waterbury — we’ll use images from our Graphics collection to help set the scene. We’ll also look at some of Thurber’s best cartoons.

Free for CHS members, $8 for non-members. This is a drop-in program, but we welcome RSVPs to help us better serve our visitors. Please email rsvp@chs.org or call 860-236-5621 ext. 238. Questions? Contact Natalie Belanger, Adult Programs Manager, at natalie_belanger@chs.org.
