Celebrate Women's History Month in March

Meet the Author: Anthony Riccio
Farms, Factories, and Families: Italian American Women of Connecticut

Saturday, March 14, 1:00 PM
History is often dominated by the exploits of men, but Anthony Riccio's book uncovers the behind-the-scenes roles of Connecticut's Italian American women, the glue of Italian American culture.  The book's visual documentation comes from family albums, which provide rare glimpses of their experiences in southern Italy and their working lives in Connecticut - toiling on tobacco farms, in the sweatshops of New Haven, on the production lines of U.S. Rubber in Naugatuck, and many family farms in North Haven, Hamden, East Haven, Waterbury, and Woodbridge. Books available for purchase and signing. Registration required. Click here to sign up>

From Hula Hoops to High Fashion: Remembering G. Fox in the 1950s
Tuesday, March 24, 6:30 PM

In the 1950s, just about every major city had a landmark department store. In Connecticut, it was G. Fox & Co.in Hartford! This presentation made by the Connecticut Historical Society will bring you back in time to Fox’s heyday as we go from floor to floor and recall departments ranging from accessories on the “street” floor, to designer dresses on 6, and ending at Toyland on 11. You’ll also learn about Beatrice Fox Auerbach, the remarkable woman who made every visit to Fox’s so enjoyable and set the standard for customer service.  We promise to stir pleasant memories of date nut bread in the Connecticut Room, back to school shopping, and Raggedy Ann and Andy!
