The Refugee Experience
Wednesday, March 22, 6:30 pm
What is it like to be a refugee? What do refugees go through in order to enter the U.S., and what is it like for them once they arrive in a new country? Join Solange Rossignol and Hope Lennartz of Refugee Advocacy Services as they speak about their experiences in meeting new refugee families as they arrive in Connecticut and learning about their often traumatic journeys. Volunteers have helped establish many families in new homes and helped them adapt to American culture as they also try to hold on to the virtues of their own cultures.
Sinatra and Me: The Very Good Years
Saturday, March 25, 1 pm
Frank Sinatra had a history with New Haven, CT thanks to his lifelong friendship with Tony Consiglio, part of the family that ran Sally's Pizzeria on Wooster St. Sinatra called Tony "The Clam" because he kept his mouth shut, but Consiglio finally told his tales to writer Franz Douskey and the revelations are published in "Sinatra and Me: The Very Good Years." Join author Franz Douskey and hear the stories. All are welcome. Books will be available for purchase and signing.

Thursday, March 30, 6:30 pm
Turn trash into treasure! Join us to make your own curled paper wreath using pages from old books. This is an easy yet beautiful craft project for the true bibliophile. No experience needed.
