Killingworth Library: December 2021 — Pearl Harbor program & Storytime

Submitted by Tammy Eustis, Assistant Director, Killingworth Library Association.

Pearl Harbor: the Stories Behind the Story with Phil Devlin

Phil Devlin presents another fascinating program on Tuesday, December 7, 2021 at 7:00 p.m., via Zoom.

This popular presentation not only deals with the numerous, interesting Connecticut connections to the infamous sneak attack on Pearl Harbor, but also deals with the often overlooked historical antecedents of the attack—a battle in the Russo-Japanese War as well as a surprise attack in Italy during World War II—which render the attack in Hawaii not as big of a surprise as it has been portrayed. The huge role that the Japanese obsession with oil played in the attack is also discussed.

This program will be held via Zoom. Registrants will receive an email the day of the program, with instructions on how to access the presentation online. Please sign up in advance on the Calendar page on the library’s website – – or call the library at 860-663-2000.
