Meet three award-winning Connecticut authors who’ve recently published thrilling books — perfect for the Halloween season! Settle into one of three cozy vintage rooms, and enjoy hearing each author read from their book. This is a “progressive” reading, so when each author has finished, he/she will move to another room and begin again… which means you can keep your comfortable seat! There will be plenty of time for discussion with the authors between readings in this intimate setting as well. Admission is free, and each author will have books for sale afterward. Participants are welcome to bring a bottle of wine if they so desire. This month’s authors: Penny Goetjen: “THE EMPTY CHAIR ~ Murder in the Caribbean” Kathryn Orzech: “ASYLUM”, a dark suspense saga Beth Caruso: “ONE OF WINDSOR – The Untold Story of America’s First Witch Hanging”
