Happy New Year, West Hartford!  Another year (and decade) gone and although the holidays have passed, West Hartford keeps on moving with plenty to do around town.  Whether you’re doing a dry January or continuing to eat, drink and be merry, here’s our Top 8 things to do in this month.

5. A Superhero for (Almost?) Everyone. With Author Karen Walsh

When: Tuesday, Jan. 14, 2020, at 6:30-8 p.m.

Where: West Hartford Libraries

Speculative fiction provides readers and viewers fantastic worlds, outside the boundaries of the real world. With that in mind, they allow readers and viewers to gain empathy for people who are not like themselves. To this end, Karen Walsh set out to find 100 “Geek” heroines that offered representation for self-identification but also looked for characters providing intersectional representation, including racial, gender, sexuality, and disability. As she walks through the reasons speculative fiction can affect social change, she also details the struggles in searching for representation across the genre.

6. Sip Session : Nick Wagner – The Power of Setting Boundaries and Saying No

When: Wednesday, Jan. 15, 2020, at 6-8 p.m.
