The Wilton Land Conservation Trust, Wilton Library, and Wilton Go Green have come together to offer a unique and immersive book reading experience for toddlers and preschoolers. Together, we've created an opportunity for families to venture outside, explore nature, listen to stories, and make an upcycled craft. As partners, we're elevating young minds within beautiful landscapes.

The five days in 1940 from May 24 through May 28 in London were among the most consequential in world history. Just two weeks after Winston Churchill became Prime Minister, and with the British Army bottled up backs against the English Channel at Dunkirk, the fate of Western Civilization hung in the balance. Historian John Lukacs takes us through a fascinating, behind-the-scenes account of the struggle inside Britain’s War Cabinet between Winston Churchill and Lord Halifax: Churchill advocating standing alone against Hitler even unto death; and Halifax arguing for a negotiated settlement with the Nazi dictator. Even though we know the outcome, the book reads like a tense political thriller. The Boston Globe said that it “is a relatively compact book, but it has the power and sweep of Shakespeare's chronicle plays….One of Lukacs' impressive strengths is a gripping narrative drive. He is lucid and splendidly readable, and furthermore, commands a host of dramatic characters.”
