We are excited to welcome author/illustrator Karen Romano Young back to Byrd's Books on Sunday June 2nd at 4:00pm to launch her new book, Galapagos Islands: the World's Living Laboratory. Books are available at Byrd's Books and Karen will sign them at the end of the event. REGISTRATION is strongly encouraged due to space.

About the book:

Welcome to the Galapágos Islands, a pristine archipelago in the Pacific Ocean, where locals and visiting scientists work among giant tortoises, salt-snorting iguanas, diving penguins, and erupting volcanoes. They are looking for just the right balance between humans and nature to lead the world to a sustainable future.

Far off the coast of Ecuador lies a group of volcanic islands unlike any other. Home to species as diverse as giant tortoises, salt-snorting marine iguanas, and the birds that made Charles Darwin famous, the Galapágos are a living laboratory for scientists working on the most urgent problem of our times: How can humans exist in harmony with nature on the only planet we are ever likely to have? Karen Romano Young, author of Antarctica: The Melting Continent, again takes to the field, visiting the archipelago to observe its environments first-hand and to interview the people who are lighting the way for the rest of us. Illustrator Amy Grimes brings Karen's experience into vivid visual life for those of us who haven't been there - yet.

About the author:

Karen Romano Young is a writer, illustrator, science communicator, and polar explorer. She has written more than two dozen books for children, and has illustrated several. Her acclaimed science books include Try This!Mission: Sea Turtle Rescue, Shark Quest, and Antarctica: The Melting Planet. She is a veteran of seven ocean science research voyages, including dives to the bottom of the ocean. Karen lives in the woods Connecticut, USA, with her husband and a big furry dog.

The illustrator (not attending): Amy Grimes loves working with the natural patterns found in her subjects. She uses a variety of hand-painted textures, which she scans and assembles to create digital collages.

Gain the skills and confidence to effectively express yourself in any situation. Whether you are a mature manager, student, young professional, career advancer or looking to make an impact in your community, Toastmasters is the most efficient, supportive, enjoyable and affordable way of gaining great communication skills.&nbsp;

  • Be more persuasive and confident when giving speeches
  • Practice to become a leader and an eloquent speaker
  • Grow into a better negotiator and sharpen your management skills
  • Gain trust and inspire teams

&nbsp;

Toastmasters members report getting promoted because of their ability to build a convincing argument, landing better job opportunities while networking because of polished impromptu speaking skills, impressing a hiring manager during an interview and expressing their thoughts when speaking in public at formal or informal functions.

&nbsp;

How Toastmasters Works:&nbsp;

Members learn by speaking to groups and working with others in a supportive environment. The Bethel Toastmasters club is made of 10-20 people who meet on the first and third Monday of each month for up to two hours. Each meeting gives members and guests several opportunities:

  • Guests and members present one- to two-minute, impromptu speeches about assigned topics.
  • Members learn how to plan and conduct meetings.
  • Members present speeches based on projects from the Pathways learning experience—Toastmasters' education program. Projects cover topics such as speech organization, vocal variety, language, gestures and persuasion.
  • Every speaker is assigned an evaluator who points out speech strengths and offers suggestions for improvement.
  • New members are offered the opportunity to work with a mentor

&nbsp;

Are you ready to grow your potential? &nbsp;

&nbsp;

Meeting Location: Bethel Public Library, 189 Greenwood Avenue, Bethel, CT 06801

Meeting Time: 6:15 pm ET

&nbsp;

Get in touch with us if you have any questions:&nbsp;

WorkspaceCT in Bethel is excited to co-host with Love |Art | Play a one-of-a-kind staged reading of an original musical the evening of Sunday, June 9th in its Tandem Theatre. The musical, Vodú, weaves a captivating tale of resilience, heritage, spirituality, and the power of ancestral wisdom in 1800 New Orleans. The play takes place in 1803 when the territory had just been sold by Spain and New Orleans was a thriving port city in 1800. The slave trade was active and wealthy aristocrats were pampered and free people of color began to enter society in a very intricate caste system.

Gain the skills and confidence to effectively express yourself in any situation. Whether you are a mature manager, student, young professional, career advancer or looking to make an impact in your community, Toastmasters is the most efficient, supportive, enjoyable and affordable way of gaining great communication skills.&nbsp;

  • Be more persuasive and confident when giving speeches
  • Practice to become a leader and an eloquent speaker
  • Grow into a better negotiator and sharpen your management skills
  • Gain trust and inspire teams

&nbsp;

Toastmasters members report getting promoted because of their ability to build a convincing argument, landing better job opportunities while networking because of polished impromptu speaking skills, impressing a hiring manager during an interview and expressing their thoughts when speaking in public at formal or informal functions.

&nbsp;

How Toastmasters Works:&nbsp;

Members learn by speaking to groups and working with others in a supportive environment. The Bethel Toastmasters club is made of 10-20 people who meet on the first and third Monday of each month for up to two hours. Each meeting gives members and guests several opportunities:

  • Guests and members present one- to two-minute, impromptu speeches about assigned topics.
  • Members learn how to plan and conduct meetings.
  • Members present speeches based on projects from the Pathways learning experience—Toastmasters' education program. Projects cover topics such as speech organization, vocal variety, language, gestures and persuasion.
  • Every speaker is assigned an evaluator who points out speech strengths and offers suggestions for improvement.
  • New members are offered the opportunity to work with a mentor

&nbsp;

Are you ready to grow your potential? &nbsp;

&nbsp;

Meeting Location: Bethel Public Library, 189 Greenwood Avenue, Bethel, CT 06801

Meeting Time: 6:15 pm ET

&nbsp;

Judy Pancoast, a Grammy-nominated children’s musician, will bring the&nbsp;fun to the Bethel Public Library to celebrate the Summer Reading Program on&nbsp;Tuesday, June 18th at 2:30 pm.&nbsp;Pancoast’s lively, interactive concerts of all-original music get kids and&nbsp;families involved from the first song, and her library concerts put the focus on&nbsp;books and reading. To go along with the Summer Reading theme of “Adventure&nbsp;Begins at Your Library,” Pancoast will present her “Reading Our Way Across the&nbsp;USA” concert, which will take kids across the country through music and spoken&nbsp;word, in search of real-life children’s literature connections and cool places to&nbsp;visit!

Be sure to wear your dancing shoes and get ready for the show by&nbsp;streaming Pancoast’s tunes on Spotify, YouTube, or any other music streaming&nbsp;service.

Bring the kids and see why audiences have raved about her rapport with&nbsp;children and her energetic personality. You’ll make family memories that will last&nbsp;a lifetime.

Bethel Arts is coordinating the “Make Music Day Bethel” on June 21, 2024 What is it? Make Music Day Bethel is a free celebration of music on June 21st, (the summer solstice). Completely different from a typical music festival, Make Music Bethel is open to anyone who wants to take part. Local musicians will play short sets in public spaces around town and in selected restaurants and other businesses. And everyone is invited to sing along and enjoy the first day of summer. This is a special day for musicians who want to participate in the world’s largest annual music event. Make Music Day is observed on the same day, June 21, in more than 1,000 cities around the world. Who can participate? For more details on participation click here Musicians: Anyone and everyone. Amateurs, professionals, and established artists are all welcome to participate. Venues: Any place and everywhere in Bethel can be a venue. Do musicians get paid? The Make Music Day Bethel organizers do not pay musicians – nor do musicians pay to perform. Most musicians perform for free. But artists and venues are welcome to make any financial arrangements they wish, as long as the concerts are free to attend, unticketed, and in public spaces. Bethel Arts has established a relationship with Make Music Day global non-profit organization, and we are organizing and scheduling musicians, presenters and venues for a fun and free day of music in and around downtown Bethel.

Byrd's Books welcomes Liv Constantine for a discussion of The Next Mrs. Parrish. To register (required), click HERE.

About the book:

Daphne and Amber Parrish are thrust back into each other's lives upon the resurgence of a long-forgotten threat, forcing a vicious game of cat and mouse where everything is on the line, in this thrilling sequel to the million-copy-bestselling Reese's Book Club pick The Last Mrs. Parrish

Amber Patterson Parrish has come a long way from being an invisible wallflower. Her hard work and immaculate planning have paid off now that she's a prominent socialite, but that doesn't mean there haven't been bumps along the way. Less than a year since her husband Jackson's tax-evasion scandal, Amber is still at the top of the Bishops Harbor community pecking order, free to do as she wishes while Jackson sits in prison. But that freedom is quickly coming to an end. With Jackson getting released from prison, Amber's time--and money--is vanishing.

Meanwhile, Daphne Parrish left Bishops Harbor after her divorce from Jackson Parrish, swearing she would never go back. But when one of her daughters runs away from home, desperate to see her father, Daphne agrees to return for the summer to allow him supervised visits. Once out of prison, Jackson swears he's a changed man, but Daphne knows all too well that he can't be trusted.

When a ghost from Amber's past emerges looking for revenge, the three of them find unlikely allies in one another, but who is playing who? When all is said and done, they'll have to fight tooth and nail for everything they have left in this zero-sum game.

With shocking turns and entertaining characters, The Next Mrs. Parrish will make you rethink everything you thought you knew about duplicity and betrayal.

About the authors:

Liv Constantine is the pen name of sisters Lynne Constantine and Valerie Constantine. Lynne and Valerie are nationally and internationally bestselling authors with more than one and a half million copies sold worldwide. Their books have been translated into twenty-nine languages, published in thirty-four countries, optioned for development in both television and film, and praised by The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, The Sunday Times, The Washington Post, People, Good Morning America, among many others. Their debut novel, The Last Mrs. Parrish, was a Reese's Book Club selection.

This is a Byrd's Books event that will be held at the Bethel Public Library across the street from the bookstore. Books are available for purchase in advance and at the event. Books from other vendors are not permitted at the signing.

Gain the skills and confidence to effectively express yourself in any situation. Whether you are a mature manager, student, young professional, career advancer or looking to make an impact in your community, Toastmasters is the most efficient, supportive, enjoyable and affordable way of gaining great communication skills.&nbsp;

  • Be more persuasive and confident when giving speeches
  • Practice to become a leader and an eloquent speaker
  • Grow into a better negotiator and sharpen your management skills
  • Gain trust and inspire teams

&nbsp;

Toastmasters members report getting promoted because of their ability to build a convincing argument, landing better job opportunities while networking because of polished impromptu speaking skills, impressing a hiring manager during an interview and expressing their thoughts when speaking in public at formal or informal functions.

&nbsp;

How Toastmasters Works:&nbsp;

Members learn by speaking to groups and working with others in a supportive environment. The Bethel Toastmasters club is made of 10-20 people who meet on the first and third Monday of each month for up to two hours. Each meeting gives members and guests several opportunities:

  • Guests and members present one- to two-minute, impromptu speeches about assigned topics.
  • Members learn how to plan and conduct meetings.
  • Members present speeches based on projects from the Pathways learning experience—Toastmasters' education program. Projects cover topics such as speech organization, vocal variety, language, gestures and persuasion.
  • Every speaker is assigned an evaluator who points out speech strengths and offers suggestions for improvement.
  • New members are offered the opportunity to work with a mentor

&nbsp;

Are you ready to grow your potential? &nbsp;

&nbsp;

Meeting Location: Bethel Public Library, 189 Greenwood Avenue, Bethel, CT 06801

Meeting Time: 6:15 pm ET

&nbsp;

Gain the skills and confidence to effectively express yourself in any situation. Whether you are a mature manager, student, young professional, career advancer or looking to make an impact in your community, Toastmasters is the most efficient, supportive, enjoyable and affordable way of gaining great communication skills.&nbsp;

  • Be more persuasive and confident when giving speeches
  • Practice to become a leader and an eloquent speaker
  • Grow into a better negotiator and sharpen your management skills
  • Gain trust and inspire teams

&nbsp;

Toastmasters members report getting promoted because of their ability to build a convincing argument, landing better job opportunities while networking because of polished impromptu speaking skills, impressing a hiring manager during an interview and expressing their thoughts when speaking in public at formal or informal functions.

&nbsp;

How Toastmasters Works:&nbsp;

Members learn by speaking to groups and working with others in a supportive environment. The Bethel Toastmasters club is made of 10-20 people who meet on the first and third Monday of each month for up to two hours. Each meeting gives members and guests several opportunities:

  • Guests and members present one- to two-minute, impromptu speeches about assigned topics.
  • Members learn how to plan and conduct meetings.
  • Members present speeches based on projects from the Pathways learning experience—Toastmasters' education program. Projects cover topics such as speech organization, vocal variety, language, gestures and persuasion.
  • Every speaker is assigned an evaluator who points out speech strengths and offers suggestions for improvement.
  • New members are offered the opportunity to work with a mentor

&nbsp;

Are you ready to grow your potential? &nbsp;

&nbsp;

Meeting Location: Bethel Public Library, 189 Greenwood Avenue, Bethel, CT 06801

Meeting Time: 6:15 pm ET

&nbsp;

Get in touch with us if you have any questions:&nbsp;

Gain the skills and confidence to effectively express yourself in any situation. Whether you are a mature manager, student, young professional, career advancer or looking to make an impact in your community, Toastmasters is the most efficient, supportive, enjoyable and affordable way of gaining great communication skills.&nbsp;

  • Be more persuasive and confident when giving speeches
  • Practice to become a leader and an eloquent speaker
  • Grow into a better negotiator and sharpen your management skills
  • Gain trust and inspire teams

&nbsp;

Toastmasters members report getting promoted because of their ability to build a convincing argument, landing better job opportunities while networking because of polished impromptu speaking skills, impressing a hiring manager during an interview and expressing their thoughts when speaking in public at formal or informal functions.

&nbsp;

How Toastmasters Works:&nbsp;

Members learn by speaking to groups and working with others in a supportive environment. The Bethel Toastmasters club is made of 10-20 people who meet on the first and third Monday of each month for up to two hours. Each meeting gives members and guests several opportunities:

  • Guests and members present one- to two-minute, impromptu speeches about assigned topics.
  • Members learn how to plan and conduct meetings.
  • Members present speeches based on projects from the Pathways learning experience—Toastmasters' education program. Projects cover topics such as speech organization, vocal variety, language, gestures and persuasion.
  • Every speaker is assigned an evaluator who points out speech strengths and offers suggestions for improvement.
  • New members are offered the opportunity to work with a mentor

&nbsp;

Are you ready to grow your potential? &nbsp;

&nbsp;

Meeting Location: Bethel Public Library, 189 Greenwood Avenue, Bethel, CT 06801

Meeting Time: 6:15 pm ET

&nbsp;
