We hope you will join us for this sure-to-be-interesting program with award winning local author Diana Perkins, creator of The Shetucket River Milltown Series. The fourth novel in the series, Summer Ice — My Life at the Bidwell, set in Coventry in the 1890s, was published this summer.

The author, who grew up in a small town near Willimantic, says she likes writing about eastern Connecticut — “the places, the legends.” Her first novel, Singing Her Alive, was published in 2011 and won a number of indie book awards. She was also a featured author in the 2012 Connecticut Authors Trail.

You’re Invited!
Canterbury Historical Society programs are free and the public is warmly invited. Bring a friend, stay for complimentary refreshments, and get to know us a little. We will do our best to make you feel welcome. The business session, which begins at 7:00, rarely lasts more than half an hour. If you want to skip it and just come for the program, plan to arrive about 7:30.

The Canterbury Historical Society’s regular monthly meetings are on the second Friday evening of the month, except for July and August, when we take a summer break.
