Shelton libraries are planning veterans programs

The Shelton libraries are offering programs to mark Veterans Day. Both programs are free and recommended for adults.

The Huntington Branch Library offers “Loss of the Quincy” on Saturday, Nov. 8, at 1 p.m.

During World War II, more than 380 men went down with the USS Quincy; a number of them from Connecticut. Learn what happened during the battle, from various viewpoints, to people caught in circumstances beyond their control.

This presentation will be lead by Bob Begin.

The branch is located in the Shelton Community Center, 41 Church Street. For more information or to register call 203-926-0111.

At Plumb

On Thursday, Nov. 13, at 7 p.m. Plumb Memorial Library offers Connecticut author Janet Barrett sharing the story of a wily Korean pony that carried ammunition up steep hills to the front lines during the Korean War.

Her book, They Called Her Reckless: a true story of war, love and one extraordinary horse will be available for purchase and autographs. Reckless was a courageous and

indomitable warhorse who stood with her buddies for two years, saving many lives, raising spirits and winning the love and respect of all who knew her.

Reservations are suggested. Plumb is at 65 Wooster Street. For more information call 203-924-1580.
