A dedicated group of professionals from the fields of law, academia, business, religion and corrections took a unique approach to the problem of mass incarceration in Connecticut and the United States. They wrote a book--together. And they want to share their findings with you.

Hear from one of the authors how this process took place, what concerns you should have as a citizen and taxpayer--where is your money going? what is it doing? are communities safer? are we being smart on crime or simply paying lip service to being "tough" on crime? Take this opportunity to engage in a conversation about one of the most important civil rights issues of our time in the 21st century.

The Essex Steam Train & Riverboat was proud to launch the Roaring 20's year theme on Saturday, June 14th in conjunction with the Connecticut Office of Tourism's 10th annual Connecticut Open House Day.

Throughout the day, attendees will step back in time upon entering the station, and will experience an era themed authentic car show (six parked vehicles), meet characters from the decade, take a journey on the train, and much, much more! There are endless photo opportunities throughout the day including relaxing in an authentic living room, posing with Roaring 20's characters, and taking a ride aboard the locomotive.
