BookCoverImage 01.07.15On Saturday, February 28, I am doing a presentation on gypsies in Connecticut at the Russell Library at 2pm in Middletown, CT. I’ll be providing the background and historical records that I used to develop my historical novel, CARAVAN OF DREAMS.

Thanks to Stephan Allison, WESU, for a great interview on this event and the new publication. Please take a listen!

Snow, snow, snow!

On Monday, February 16 (President’s Day) at 10AM, ecotherapist Beth Lapin will be offering a hike at Wadsworth State Park through Middletown’s Recreation Division. We plan to explore this 267-acre park by walking past the Giant Laurel to Little Falls and, conditions permitting, continue to the Big Falls. The trip should last until approximately 11:30AM.

Wear hiking shoes (some wet areas), ice clips, and a walking stick if needed. Bring a snack and water, camera, binoculars if desired. Children under age 16 must attend with an adult 18+.

Directions: Wadsworth State Park at the parking lot on 721 Wadsworth St, Middlefield
