Torrington author and lecturer Frances Moulder will read from her new book and afterwards lead a group Q&A and discussion. Lunch will be offered before the talk.  
“Exiting the Extraordinary” is about people who return to an ordinary life after war, prison, and other extraordinary experiences. Frances will talk about what drew her to research the topic; the common nature of seemingly diverse extraordinary experiences; and insights from her research about the challenges people face when returning from extraordinary experiences to the ordinary world, and strategies that returnees have used to deal with those challenges.
“Exiting the Extraordinary” book reading and discussion will be Saturday, March 12th. There will be a casual lunch at 12:30pm and the talk will begin at 1:00pm. The Noelke Gallery is open Thursday – Sunday 1pm to 5pm in downtown Torrington, Connecticut.
Frances V. Moulder was a lecturer in urban and community studies at UCONN in Torrington after her retirement from associate professor of sociology at Three Rivers Community College. She grew up in Tennessee and lived in New York, New Jersey and California before coming to Connecticut, where she lives in her adopted home town of Torrington.  
The Noelke Gallery, located at 15 Water Street in downtown Torrington, is a conceptual art project owned and managed by renowned sculptor and painter John H. Noelke. The Noelke Gallery is an attempt to remove the elitist discernment of contemporary art and hopes to curate an approachable gallery that encourages conversation, sparks imagination, 
and serves as a haven for anyone interested.
