Waterbury Irish: From the Emerald Isle to the Brass City will be officially launched on Thursday, October 15, 6 p.m. at the Mattatuck Museum, Waterbury, Connecticut! I am currently preparing a Power Point of key images for the talk, and John Wiehn will join me in presenting some of the material included in the text.
Members of the Mattatuck will be admitted free. Otherwise there will be a charge of $7 at the door for adults, $6 for seniors. Many of the individuals whose family stories gave life to this work will be in attendance, and we all expect to have a “grand” time! After the event, we plan to visit The Shamrock Grill, where the owner has generously agreed to offer a 10% discount on food and drink to those who attended the talk and signing–and 20% for those who purchased the book at the Mattatuck!
On Saturday, the 17th, 10:30 a.m., the launch continues with a presentation and signing at the Silas Bronson Library. At 5 p.m. that day, the Waterbury Barnes & Noble will also host a signing. Looking forward to seeing everyone at whichever event is possible to attend, and to collectively celebrate a story that deserved to be told about this important place in history! Thank you, over and again, to all who helped to make this book a reality–and to all who will support the massive amount of work that went into producing it by purchasing a copy! Sláinte!

Janet, congratulations! I am back in NYC, but will be in Canada the week of your book launch and will not be able to come up this time. Too bad, looks like an opportunity for another family reunion! Best… Polly
