Ready for a Road Trip?

Take the CT Author’s Trail!

Each week in July, August and September cool off and relax at an area library while following The Connecticut Authors Trail. Area libraries have joined together to assemble local authors for a trail of meet and greets and will have their books for sale and signing. The trail ends with a finale on September 4th, 2014 at the Cabaret Theatre located in the Mohegan Sun Casino.

 Check out  connecticutauthorstrail.org for details!
