Author Talk with Eric Lehman

Sponsored by: Derby Public Library

Join Eric for a lively lecture about the remarkable story of “Connecticut Town Greens: History of the State’s Common Centers”. Town Greens are thought of as relics of another time, but as residents of Connecticut, they are part of our lives. In fact, over 170 public spaces remain on which we can walk where our ancestors and predecessors walked. Mr. Lehman will also be selling and signing copies of his book “Connecticut Town Greens” as well as his other books.

Eric D. Lehman is the director of creative writing at the University of Bridgeport and has stories, reviews, and essays in dozens of magazines and journals. His dozen books include “Connecticut Town Greens”, “A History of Connecticut Food”, the “Insiders’ Guide to Connecticut”, and “Becoming Tom Thumb”, which won the annual award from the Victorian Society of America. and was chosen as one of the top university press books of the year by the American Library Association. His novel “Shadows of Paris” won two independent book awards and was a finalist for the Connecticut Book Award.
