The Trumbull Library, 33 Quality St, has announced a live theatrical performance by Nancy Palmento Schuler on Tuesday, Sept. 26, at 6:30 p.m.
The performance, “Three Roads, Three Women” tells the story of three very different women and their individual journeys to Connecticut. All are based on actual facts and people, although some names have been changed. Characters include Teresa Gargiulo Palmento, a widowed Italian immigrant in Waterbury, struggling to raise her family and become a citizen; Junie Harlow from Middlebury, who is now 90, shares her thoughts on aging and love; and Ruth Jeffers, a black woman born in the 1940s in North Carolina, moving to Waterbury with her son. Now in her 70s, she reflects on growing up in the south before the Civil Rights Movement and her inspiring outlook on life.
