Gluten-free for You

 

You’ve all heard all this talk about the gluten-free diet. But what is it? And how do you know if you are part of the 30% of the population that should be on it?

            Heather Jacobsen, author of Going Gluten-Free: 7 Surprising Facts You Should Know If You Want To Achieve Dietary Success, will discuss just what the gluten-free diet is all about, and whether or not you would benefit from it.

            Jacobsen is an author, a researcher, and founder of the online magazine Stuffed Pepper.

In dealing with health issues that no conventional doctor seemed to be able to solve, Jacobsen has unraveled the true science behind gluten, grains and chronic disease.

           

            Those with unexplained chronic diseases may find answers at this presentation.

            Don’t miss this chance to become informed! All are welcome to attend. 

            The workshop will be held at the Milford Public Library located at 57 New Haven Avenue. For more information, call the Reference desk at (203) 783-3292 or visit our website at Milfordlibrary.org.

The Not-So-Good Life of a Colonial Goodwife

 

 March is women’s history month, celebrating strong women. This program reminds us all  how far we’ve come. Discover what life was really like for New England's colonial women - because we've always been curious about: menstruation, sex & birth control, childbirth, sickness & medicine.  These strong women helped build our country, despite primitive and harsh conditions.

            Milford Library and the Milford Historical Society welcome Velya Jancz-Urban, who will delight us with her knowledge of everyday living in the colonial era.   This program will be held on Wednesday, March 15 at 6:30pm, at Milford Public Library, 57 New Haven Ave. in Milford.

            In 2011,  Jancz-Urban and her family bought a foreclosed farmhouse in Woodbury, Connecticut, unaware of what the house would reveal. Behind the walls, surprises and secrets waited to be exposed. This became the spark for the novel, Acquiescence. Moving into this 1770 farmhouse ignited her interest in the colonial era. While researching her novel, she became obsessed (in a good way) with colonial women. In Jancz-Urban’s entertainingly-informative presentation, The Not-So-Good Life of the Colonial Goodwife, even history buffs will learn a thing or two.

            The Not-So-Good Life of the Colonial Goodwife not only makes audience members laugh and grimace, but it also honors our foremothers. It’s not about quilting bees and spinning wheels - it’s an interactive presentation about the little-known issues faced by New England’s colonial women.

            Ms. Jancz-Urban has traveled throughout the east coast presenting at libraries, historical societies, women’s groups, conferences, universities, book festivals, and women’s history month events. She regularly hosts book club gatherings at her 1770 Connecticut farmhouse, the primary setting of her novel. As the Grounded Goodwife, Velya and her daughter, Ehris, teach a variety of hands-on holistic workshops.

Brass Valley - a History of the Valley's Industrial Past

 

They called the steep valley of Connecticut’s Naugatuck River, "Brass Valley,” because from the time the world began running on steam and bearings, trolleys and soot, the Naugatuck Valley came to be where most of the world’s brass manufacturing happened. Brass Valley: The Fall of an American Industry (Schiffer Books, 2015) is a book of pictures and stories about how it all happened. 

Ansonia Copper & Brass was the last descendent of Anaconda American Brass, last of the “Big Three” brass-makers with working mills in the Naugatuck Valley. It operated in historic buildings on historic properties using equipment, some of which went back to the 19th century. With Wright Brothers era technology they made metal tube for 21st century submarines - until the factory closed for good in December, 2013. The book’s photographs catch the men and equipment in all stages of production and in the knick of time.


The book tells at least three stories. First, is the story of the last working brass mill, the men and the machinery used to cast, extrude, and process the metal. Second are the stories of how Brass Valley came to be, what it was, and how we changed in the process. Finally there is the story told by the pictures of the men and communities that made Brass Valley and the culture we call the American Dream.

Author Emery Roth II will appear at Milford Library, 57 New Haven Ave., on March 20 at 7pm. His talk is accompanied by vivid photographs of Brass Valley from the book and others taken more recently. He shares experiences and discoveries made while photographing, and talks about what it means to try to find Brass Valley, a place in time that has not quite vanished.

This program is free and open to the public. All are welcome.

Monday, March 20, 2017 7:00 PM thru 08:30 PM
