7-8:30 p.m., Conn. author Eric Lehman will discuss his book that is more than the dramatic story of Benedict Arnold’s betrayal of America. It is a tour de force of research, showing that evil can draw a society?or nation?together as effectively as can good. Benedict Arnold was a traitor?and a terrorist. It tells how Arnold and 1,600 British soldiers and loyalists captured Fort Griswold and burned down the settlement of New London in 1781, describes life in those times and explores how and why Arnold betrayed his countrymen and killed his neighbors. A question and answer period will follow the formal presentation. Copies of the book Homegrown Terror will be available for purchase and signing; free; (860) 444-5805.
