October brings Sarah WSard to the Weir Farm Artist-in-Residence program direct from Dublin. Sarah's practice revolves around the notion of virtual space. Asking the question: what reality do you experience when you stand before a piece of art? Ward plans to explore the relationship between art and space to consider how places are occupied, which at times can be transitory. Through documentation by means of photography, painting, drawing and collage, she aims to stimulate a series of work that illustrates her direct response to the natural surroundings of Weir Farm. Co-sponsored by Weir Farm Art Center and Weir Farm National Historic Site and presented by Wilton Library. No charge. Registration suggested.

Dickens' masterpiece Great Expectations is one of his most accessible (and short!) novels and has been read and re-read with great pleasure by millions of people since its publication in 1861. The quintessential Victorian novel, it tells the coming-of-age story of the rural orphan Pip as he makes his way up through the ranks of London society. Along the way, we meet some of the most memorable characters in English literature such as Joe the blacksmith, Mr. Pumblechook, Abel Magwitch the convict, Estella, and of course Miss Havisham. In an 1861 review The Atlantic said: "The very title of this book indicates the confidence of conscious genius" and that "the most famous novelist of the day, watched by jealous rivals and critics, could hardly have selected it, had he not inwardly felt the capacity to meet all the expectations he raised."
