98 Summer St, Bristol, CT Phone: 860-583-6309.

7 pm. at Bristol Historical Society. While the small town of Bristol, Connecticut was quiet in the wee hours of April 20, 1918, the most shocking time in its military history was beginning 3,600 miles away in the ruined town of Seicheprey, France. As Bristol slept, its men who were part of the Yankee Division's 102nd Infantry were deafened by a massive, unrelenting German bombardment.Those green troops were about to make history by participating in the first significant engagement fought by the
American Expeditionary Forces in World War I. What followed was vicious hand to hand fighting with 3,200 attacking German storm troopers in the trenches, in the woods, and in the village. When the fighting ceased, 18 Bristol men from Company D were wounded, almost two dozen were captured, and a total of 8 Bristol men died, all within just 24 hours. Timothy Denehy from the Memorial Military Museum will share memorable stories of some of those men. Artifacts from the WWI exhibit in The Jack Denehy Gallery will be passed among the audience. Refreshments will be served and donations are gratefully accepted.

20 Greenwoods Rd West, Norfolk, CT Phone: 866-666-6306.

8 pm. Rodney Crowell has been doing this for a while. In fact, his career has been so long and varied that you have to specify exactly which this you're talking about. There's the record-making, which dates back to 1978 (when he released Ain't Living Long Like This), peaked commercially a decade later (with Diamonds & Dirt, which yielded five number-one country hits), and has only grown in sophistication and power in recent years. There's the fiercely lyrical and personal songwriting, which has attracted the attention of everyone from Bob Seger (who famously covered "Shame On the Moon") to Keith Urban (who had a number-one hit with "Making Memories of Us"). And then there's the autobiographical writing, which extends beyond the music world to a memoir, Chinaberry Sidewalks, which was published in 2011.
