      On Thursday, December 8, James Benn, author of the popular Billy Boyle, World War II mystery series, will talk about his newest book, Freegift, during an hour-long Zoom presentation sponsored by Bill Memorial Library in Groton. The book is a Revolutionary War tale set in southeastern Connecticut. It follows the formerly enslaved Freegift Cooper, who discovers his father is the notorious traitor Benedict Arnold. Benn will discuss the burning of New London and the Battle of Fort Griswold and how the fight for liberty affected slavery in New England. He will also share how these historic events inspired his novel and discuss the techniques necessary for writing historical fiction.
      This program is free, and registration is required. Contact the library at 860-445-0392 for more information or to register.

      Join us on Thursday 12/8 @ 2pm to discuss Fresh water for flowers by Valérie Perrin “Violette Toussaint is the caretaker at a cemetery in a small town in Bourgogne. Random visitors, regulars, and, most notably, her colleagues—three gravediggers, three groundskeepers, and a priest—visit her as often as possible to warm themselves in her lodge, where laughter, companionship, and occasional tears mix with the coffee that she offers them.” Email Ivyhope@stoningtonfreelibrary.org for more information!
