Revisit the Gilded Age in Norwich

Author Patricia F. Staley will launch her book, "Norwich in the Gilded Age: The Rose City's Millionaires' Triangle" with a discussion and signing on Saturday, Jan. 25, at 3:30 p.m. at the Slater Memorial Museum in the Slater Auditorium, 108 Crescent St., Norwich. Light refreshments will be provided.

According to a press release, Staley's book invites readers to "Stroll down Norwich's most fashionable mile of millionaires' mansions and mingle with the extraordinary people who lived and played behind their elegant façades during the glamorous Gilded Age. Wealthy manufacturers and merchants constructed magnificent mansions, many of which survive today, along this trendiest triangle in the glitzy Rose of New England."

The event is free and open to the public. Books will be available for purchase at the event. For additional details, contact Leigh Thomas at (860) 425-5561 or thomasl@nfaschool.org.
