Tuesday, May 12, 2015 6:30 p.m at the Meriden Public Library
Presented by author Ray Bendici.
A “delightfully wicked look at the badly behaved characters who shaped the history of Connecticut through their deeds and misdeeds.”
To quote Mr. Bendici: ”Consider this smorgasbord: a colorful counterfeiter, a Native American sachem, an accused witch, a legendary showman, a vindictive minister, an iconic manufacturer, a transplanted Russian count, a wise guy mobster, a corporate con man, a mad bomber, the nation’s most infamous traitor, and a God. (Well, a self proclaimed God anyway.)”
This program is co-sponsored with the Meriden Public Library and is free to the public. Refreshments will be served.
MAY SPECIAL EXHIBIT AND OPEN HOUSE AT THE ANDREW’S HOMESTEAD IS SUSPENDED:
