Litchfield Rd., Harwinton, CT 06791. Phone: 860-482-7978.

THE PRESIDENT AND THE MAD MAN--"Charles Guiteau stood watching the president move across the train station. Guiteau had decided to kill President James Garfield after only a few months in office "because God had ordered him to do it." The Harwinton Historical Society will introduce Gordon Williams, a retired history teacher, to tell us this story. Williams has received Trumbull's Teacher of the Year award and was a runner-up as Connecticut Teacher of the Year. He spent a year in England as a Fulbright exchange teacher. In 1991 he was one of six Connecticut teachers to win the financially rewarding Milken Education Award.
The program present by Mr. Williams will take place on Sunday, February 29, 2016 at the Harwinton Library on Bentley Drive from 2:00 to 4:00 PM. The program is open to all and there will be no charge although donations are gratefully received.

A drama by Tennessee Williams that centers around Tom Wingfield, an aspiring poet  who begrudgingly works in a factory to support his family which his father had abandoned. Tom’s painfully shy and crippled sister Laura has a peculiar preoccupation with a collection of glass animals that draws her away from reality. Set against the backdrop of the Depression, the family struggles together with the past, the future, and one another.
