What is the Connecticut Authors Trail?
The Connecticut Authors Trail consists of a consortium of Eastern Connecticut Libraries who are constantly amazed at the variety of genres and diverse styles of writing among the authors who live in or are associated with the Nutmeg State. Beginning July 6, 2017 at 6:30 pm in Franklin and ending September 14, 2017 at the Mohegan Sun, local authors will showcase their books and share their stories.
Passports are available free at participating libraries throughout the summer as a guide to the author events. If you miss an event during the summer, you are invited to meet many of the authors from the Trail at the Finale’. The doors to The Mohegan Sun Cabaret Theatre open at 6:15 pm.
You will automatically be entered into a door prize drawing at each author event. In addition, be sure to have your passport stamped at each author event for a chance to qualify for a special prize at the finale. The Finale drawing will be held at 6:45 pm. Then stay and join us for a fun-filled evening with our featured speaker starting at 7:00 pm.
