Thank you to the Naugatuck Historical Society for a great first public discussion and book signing for From the Old Sod to the Naugatuck Valley: Early Irish Catholics in New Haven County, Connecticut! We had a full house of interested and interesting people, and many purchased the book—some in multiple copies. After four days in Connecticut it is time to order more!
– Jane Lyons also speaking at the book signing
That Jane Lyons came to America for this made it an even more special occasion. We had an interview at the Waterbury Republican-American newspaper and had an excellent time with my husband, our friends and family, introducing our extended home town to Jane, with enough quiet time to also feel on vacation. Our intrepid traveler continues her American adventure in Boston currently, then will wend her way to D.C., Virginia and Baltimore next week.
Coming soon, a Paypal account for this blog!
