In keeping with the Chamber's mission of “Connecting The Community With Commerce” this Calendar was created to allow member businesses and New Canaan based non-profits to promote their upcoming events to the public. The Community Calendar is a local resource for all residents and visitors and has quickly become one of the most visited pages on the site. Events can be submitted via the link below and will be reviewed and posted within 24-48 hours.

Both events will take place in the Adrian Lamb Room; please register online, at newcanaanlibrary.org.
Peter Brown, author/illustrator of the middle grade book The Wild Robot, its sequel The Wild Robot Escapes, and many others, will visit the Library on Thursday, March 21 at 6:30 p.m. Brown will discuss the process of creating The Wild Robot along with insights into his creative development from childhood to the present. He will also present a drawing demonstration, along with some quick lessons. Following will be a question and answer period, and time for book signing.
On Friday, March 22 at 10 a.m. Brown returns to greet his younger fans. Preschoolers and their parents/caregivers are invited to listen to a story and learn how he illustrates his picture books. Some of his books geared towards a younger audience include Mr. Tiger Goes Wild, Children Make Terrible Pets, My Teacher is a Monster, The Curious Garden, and many more.
