The Book Festival events scheduled for March 31st and April 26th have been postponed out of an abundance of caution for our senior population. Our highest priority is, and always will be, the safety, health and well-being of our members, staff and community. This decision was not easy, but it was made after careful consideration of our guest authors traveling from out of state.
These events will be rescheduled for a later date, and we look forward to announcing those dates.
We sincerely appreciate your support and understanding.
Authors Jane Healey and Lynda Cohen Loigman in conversation with Jillian Puzzo of BookBarCT.com
Beantown Girls follows three best friends from Boston who leave the USA to volunteer overseas as Red Cross Clubmobile girls. A novel of love, courage, and danger unfolds as World War II’s brightest American heroines take on the front lines.
In The Wartime Sisters we meet Ruth and Millie, estranged sisters, raised in Brooklyn and each burdened with her own shocking secret, are reunited at the Springfield Armory in the early days of WWII. Resentment festers between the two, and secrets are shattered when a mysterious figure from the past reemerges in their lives.
Both titles will be available for sale and signing at the event.
