With an induction cooktop, a convection oven, a Vitamix blender, an electric griddle, a hand washing station, and enough utensils and equipment for a dozen people to work together—it’s a novel and innovative new approach to cooking classes. Join us at this public unveiling, and be among the first to see how it all works. Adults. Class size is limited and registration is required. Register at russelllibrary.org.

How To Manage That Inner Critical Voice So You Can Get The Job Of Your Dreams
Every human being has an internal critical voice that can lead to feelings of stress, anxiety and doubt. As a job seeker, you need to be aware of it and deal with it. If not, it can throw you off balance at best and worse, it can keep you stuck and failing to meet your goals. End self-sabotage, increase your confidence and learn how to step more fully into your personal power. In this workshop you will learn tools and strategies, which you can begin using right away, to overcome the feeling of “imposter syndrome,” increase your impact and move forward to land the job of your dreams.
This is an interactive workshop. Attendees who participate in this session will be able to:
Identify that critical inner voice and know how to shut it down
Identify fears and excuses and move past them
Apply strategies to change your mindset and enable action
Develop a vision for the future

We Were There: Writing Your Military Experiences - Thursdays at 2pm Meeting Room 2
Author Elisabeth Petry will continue to lead The Veterans' Writing Group. This series, in its third year, invites Veterans to share their stories and photos in their own voices. All Veterans, either active or retired, are encouraged to come and share their experiences for their own benefit or to share with family and friends. We encourage new members to visit us this summer to see what we are all about! Currently, we have service people from combat and non-combat situations from WWII, Korea, Vietnam, and Iraqi Freedom. We hope to hear from other Iraq War Vets, and those who have served in Afghanistan. Old Saybrook native Elisabeth Petry is a writer and former journalist and lawyer. Her first book, a collection of letters that she edited, was Can Anything Beat White?: A Black Family's Letters. Her second is At Home Inside: A Daughter’s Tribute to Ann Petry. She lives in Middletown with her husband, Lawrence Riley, who is a dog trainer and the former Commander of the American Legion Milardo-Wilcox Post 75, Middletown CT.
