Book Discussion with Janet Krauss: Where the Crawdads Sing

No charge for the program. Co-sponsored by Wilton Library and Stay at Home in Wilton. Advance registration required. Register online in order to receive the Zoom session invitation link. Please email Michael Bellacosa at mbellacosa@wiltonlibrary.org with any questions.

This blockbuster debut novel by wildlife scientist Delia Owens landed on The New York Times Best Seller list just a few weeks after its publication in August 2018, reaching Number One by January 2019 and then spending over 20 weeks in the top spot during 2019. Its two plots are an intertwining of a coming-of-age story and a murder mystery in the context of naturalist writing centered on the marshes and swamps of North Carolina. Chris Schluep wrote in Amazon Book Review: “This novel has a mystery at its core, but it can be read on a variety of levels. There is great nature writing; there is coming of age; and there is literature. Crawdads is a story lovingly told…You’ll want to relax and take your time as well, and when you’re done you will want to talk about it with another reader.”

We will trace its emergence from Babylonian time, to its growth in the East, its subjugation in Greece to its non-emergence in Rome, to its banishment by the Church, and finally its ascendance in the West. We  will discuss the earliest counting systems (still used by some indigenous peoples) and how it morphed into our current system.  We will discuss how the fear of the “Big Bad Zero” choked the development of the West – especially science and economic development - by more than a millennium.

No charge. Online registration required to receive Zoom invitation link. Questions: email mbellacosa@wiltonlibrary.org.

Peter Wrampe, a longtime resident of Wilton, is currently an Adjunct Instructor in NYU’s Graduate School, focusing on Inferential Statistics as well as Finance for Marketing.

For the first time in NASA’s history, NASA is allowing all the business and design processes in privatization to  allow private companies to test, build, and launch their own rockets into Earth orbit and beyond. From building their own space port, manufacturing reusable rockets, and overseeing space operations, companies like SpaceX and Boeing are launching American industry into a new space frontier. Join David Mestre as he discusses what it takes to enter the new space economy and how NASA’s public/private partnerships are planting the seeds for future industries and markets.
