Event Description

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Hilton Valentine will perform at Wallingford Public Library on Friday, November 6th at 7:00 p.m. Tickets are available free of charge from the library’s information desk, however quantities are limited.

Hilton Valentine is best known for his work as the guitarist with the sixties British Invasion group, The Animals. He made his name in Rock & Roll, earning a worldwide number one hit with House Of The Rising Sun, nine additional top 40 hits such as We Gotta Get Out Of This Place, It’s My Life, Don’t Let Me Be Misunderstood, Don’t Bring Me Down, I’m Crying, and more; achieving gold records, a place in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, and in Hollywood’s Rock Walk of Fame, but his beginnings were based on Folk.

Since 2004, he has released two acoustic albums featuring not only his self-penned music but the Skiffle music and early Rock & Roll that started him on his path to worldwide success.  His solo acoustic tracks have been described by critics as “hauntingly compelling in their understated anger.”  Quoting another critic about his Skiffle and R&R numbers, “ it really rocks out, acoustic instruments and all…and gets this listener's pulse rising and his feet tapping, so that by "Gamblin' Man" I was dancing around my apartment the first time I played this!”

Whether he’s playing Rock & Roll on a stage in front of thousands, or in an intimate acoustic setting, Hilton’s soul comes pouring out of his guitar and into the ears of delighted listeners.

Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. Due to sensitivities of vocal folds, the audience is asked to arrive fragrance free. The library is located at 200 North Main Street. For more information please contact the library at www.wallingfordlibrary.org or 203-265-6754.

The Anatomy of an Inclusive—and Successful—Community Partnership: Q&A with Thomas Wyatt

Thomas Wyatt, a researcher, urban planner and 2019 Rubinger Fellow from Flint, Michigan, discusses what it takes to forge cross-sector partnerships that can achieve authentic community change. A prime example: Flint’s University Avenue Corridor Coalition brought residents and institutions together to reduce a neighborhood’s entrenched blight and crime when nothing else could.

What Happens When Workforce Development Meets Industrial District Revitalization

A new white paper from LISC’s Research and Evaluation team shows how revitalizing industrial districts can have an extraordinary impact in creating good jobs, activating neighborhoods and sparking local economies. Case in point: New York’s Brooklyn Navy Yard, an inspiring model for disinvested districts across the country.

“I Believe in the Power of Storytelling.” A Q&A with LISC’s Tope Folarin, Whose Novel Debuts this Week

“She told me I could serve her in heaven.” From that powerful opening line in A Particular Kind of Black Man, award-winning author Tope Folarin leads readers through an exploration of identity as seen through the eyes of a first-generation Nigerian-American. Folarin, whose “day job” is as LISC’s vice president of content and storytelling, says the story is relevant not just because of its connection to immigration and race, but because it looks at the way people struggle to build their own personal narratives…to live into their own stories. On the eve of his book tour, he talked about how his work as a novelist intersects with his work at LISC.
