Wicked New Haven

Sponsored by: New Haven Museum

Since its founding in 1638 as a Puritan outpost, the Connecticut metropolis of New Haven has been plagued by all manner of sin, scandal and the paranormal. Stories of grave robbers and madmen in lighthouses are only a sliver of the Elm City ’s darker side. In his new book Wicked New Haven, author and historian Michael J. Bielawa chronicles the city’s historic tales of pirates, mysteries and unusual deaths. Some of these strange stories include Yale hauntings, the Red Pirate William Delaney, the mysterious labor activist Frank Sokolowsky, and much more. On Tuesday, October 1 at 6:00 pm at the New Haven Museum , join Bielawa, if you dare, and peer into the shadowy corners of New Haven ’s wicked history. Admission is free; donations are welcomed. Book signing to follow; copies of Wicked New Haven will be available for sale.
