25 Avery Place, Westport, CT Phone: 203-222-1424 .
7 pm - 8 pm. Writer Jonathan Bennett Walker grew up on Compo Road South listening to his great- grandmother's stories about his Bennett ancestors during the American Revolution. And never for a moment did he believe that Deliverance Bennett, a direct forebear, was anything but a Patriot. Walker says his novel takes the family story, as he now knows it, as a starting point and imagines the turmoil it must have brought to the lives of the Bennett brothers and their families. His talk is mostly about his journey of discovery, Walker says, and not the novel. Signed copies will be available for purchase and light refreshments will be served. There is a $10 donation, and reservations are suggested. Call (203)222-1424 to make reservations.
