What ya doing Thursday May 11? Join us 5:30 to 7:30 pm at the Barnum Museum, main floor, to commemorate the release of my new book Connecticut Characters: Personalities Spicing Up The Nutmeg State. Light refreshments served. What better place than Mr. Barnum’s gift to the city? Enter the left side entrance to the building known as the People’s United Bank Gallery. The main entrance is undergoing renovations from that rude tornado that tore through Downtown in 2010. Stop in, have a glass of wine, finger foods, mingle with the people, pick on your favorite politician, say hello. Special book price, $25. I hope to be signing a bunch of books. No disappearing ink, I promise.
