Join us on Tuesday, May 10, 2016 - 7:00pm at the Watertown Library (map) for a book talk and signing with Mr. Charles Monagan, former editor of Connecticut Magazine and Middlebury resident. Mr. Monagan will speak about and read from his new book and first novel Carrie Welton.
The name Carrie Welton may be familiar to area residents and Waterbury natives from the beautiful landmark of the stallion on the Waterbury Green, a fountain, meant for watering horses. Mr. Monagan has taken this 19th century historical figure and brought her to life in a "thrilling series of high-wire adventures."
Mr. Monagan will sign books after the reading. Copies of the book will be available for purchase that night.
This program is free and open to the public.
