  • Forensic History of a Connecticut Slave: The Life and Death of Mr. Fortune
Monday February 10, 7:00 pm
Join us as Quinnipiac University School of Medicine Professor Richard Gonzalez describes his anthropological examination of the remains of an 18th-century Connecticut slave, Mr. Fortune. Fortune’s bones were used by his owner for medical research; hundreds of years later they were donated to the Mattatuck Museum in Waterbury. More than 200 years after his death, Fortune was given a proper burial. This presentation provides a great example of how modern forensic techniques can contribute to the historical study of slavery and the use of slaves by physicians.

  • Cheshire Cats Classics Club

Wednesday, February 19, 7:00pm

Our February pick is Moll Flanders by Daniel Defoe.

Written by Defoe in 1722 under a pseudonym so his readers would think it an actual journal of the ribald fortunes and misfortunes of a woman in eighteenth-century London, the book remains a picaresque novel of astonishing vitality. From her birth in Newgate Prison to her ascent to a position of wealth and  stature, Moll Flanders demonstrates both a mercantile spirit and an indomitable will. This vivid saga of an irresistible and notorious heroine endures today as one of the liveliest, most candid records of a woman’s progress through the hypocritical labyrinth of society ever recorded.

This month’s book is available to check out at the library.  Please join us!  To register, please visit our  website.
