Best Selling Author Richard Louv to Speak in Newtown on April 5th
There will be two open-to-the-public presentations in Newtown, CT, on Friday, April 5th, by internationally acclaimed Audubon Medal Winner Richard Louv - the best-selling author of Last Child in the Woods and The Nature Principle. The April 5th date falls within a time frame that many trauma specialists feel is a critical transitional period (four months after the tragedy) in the long-term emotional recovery from the Newtown shootings that occurred in December.

Painter Julian Alden Weir installed stars on the ceiling of all three of his studios. He had three studios: one in New York City, one in Windham, CT and one behind his home in Branchville, CT. Visitors will be able to see the original stars in his Branchville studio at Weir Farm National Historic Site once the Weir Studio has been restored in late 2013.
