Films and Fair Trade: Nov. 16 Weekend Events

I’m outta here this weekend, but there is a lot going on in the area.

1. Indian Film Festival at UConn Stamford Campus. Friday through Sunday. Cool! I http://www.blogger.com/img/gl.link.giflove free movies. Click on calendar for more info.

2. Fair trade sale at First Presby Church on Bedford St. this Sat, 10-4, and Sun 12-3. It’s run by Ten Thousand Villages. From their site: “Working with unemployed or underemployed artisans, we help them bring their crafts and cultures to North America, and to support themselves and their families.”

3. The library has a humor columnist speaking at 1:30 tomorrow at the HB branch on Vine St.

4. Heads Up: Two Mondays from now, Nov. 26, 7 pm. Book discussion at the South End library of Barack Obama’s biography Dreams of My Father: A Story of Race and Inheritance. I am so going to that.

5. Heads up next Wednesday Nov 21: Deep Banana Blackout, Toad's Place, 9 p.m. This isn’t in Stamford, but a girl I knew from college used to play sax for them, so I, you know, feel close to the band.

6. Chiara sounds interesting if you like non-boring classical music. It’s in Greenwich, but whatever.
