Please join us as historian Jerry Roberts presents a program exploring New England’s greatest river from Long Island Sound to its source 410 miles north, just yards from the Canadian border. Roberts and pilot/photographer Tom Walsh documented historic canals, bridges, ship wrecks, rock formations, and even sand patterns on the river bottom from low-flying small aircraft. Their book shows quaint villages and greens, factories and industrial cities, broad vistas, and the Connecticut River’s many twists and bends interspersed with historic images and background information. Get out of the house and dream of the warm months as you view and learn about the wonders of our Connecticut River.
Books will be available for purchase at $45, and Jerry Roberts will be happy to sign your copy.
