Ancient America: Fifty Archaeological Sites to See for Yourself : Presentation and Book Signing with Dr. Kenneth Feder
Mar 7 @ 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm
Ancient America: Fifty Archaeological Sites to See for Yourself : Presentation and Book Signing with Dr. Kenneth Feder

Saturday, March 7, 2020

There is a “hidden history” of America’s first peoples. Of course, there hasn’t been a conspiracy to hide that history. It’s the simple result of historical amnesia. For example, most Americans are unaware that Native American cultures included long-lived empires of pyramid building farmers whose cities were ruled over by powerful kings. Not many know that in the American Southwest, there were peaceful farmers living in enormous, finely constructed adobe and stone apartment complexes. Fewer still are familiar with the awe-inspiring natural galleries where ancient native artists left behind tens of thousands of depictions of a broad array of complex geometric forms, naturalistic animals, and phantasmagorical spirit beings. The remains of many of these monuments, sites, and works of art still exist and can be visited by the archaeological tourist.

Dr. Kenneth Feder’s  book, Ancient America: Fifty Archaeological Sites to See for Yourself isn’t just a travel guide: it’s a “time-travel” guide. Inspiring your journey through time by visiting these sites is his goal, both in his book as well as in this presentation.

Dr. Kenneth Feder is a Professor of Anthropology at Central Connecticut State University in New Britain, Connecticut.

2:00 p.m., A. B. Ceder Room, Members: $10.00  Non-members: $15.00, Preregistration and pre-payment are required. Call 860-567-0857 or register online.

A Musical Evening with Ian Campbell

A Musical Evening with Ian Campbell

Saturday, March 7, 2020

Ian grew up in Connecticut with seventeen entertaining and musical brothers and sisters. Outrageous family dinner time jam sessions, with instruments like “salt shaker” and “nose” gave Ian a love for music and performance. After high school, Ian spent five years in the military. Did a lot of growing up there… Came home, traveled more, fell in love, broke up, rinsed, repeated… broke the chain, got married… Making a family and a music career in his own little American dream..

Ian’s music is influenced mostly by singer songwriters. James Taylor, Jackson Browne, Joni Mitchell. Then came these modern day folkies… The Patti Larkin, Eddie from Ohio, Cheryl Wheeler and the likes… Ian’s music is about making your way through life as an American kid, and now an adult who always ‘feels’ like a kid. Ian is always interested in finding the light. Songs of love, growth, journey, killing, lost innocence, learning… It’s all in there.. BYOB! Cake and coffee will be on hand! This evening is going to be so much fun! 7:00 P.M., A. B. Ceder Room. All tickets: $15.00. Pre-registration and pre-payment are required. Call 860-567-0857 or register online.
