The Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum at 295 West Ave., Norwalk, CT will hold a book signing in the Museum’s Gift Shop on Saturday, November 25, 12-1 p.m. of Globe Pequot’s newly released, A Connecticut Christmas: Celebrating the Holiday in Classic New England Style by photographer Caryn B. Davis.
A Connecticut Christmas, which features a chapter dedicated to the holiday displays at the Lockwood-Mathews Mansion Museum, is a photographic journey celebrating classic New England traditions, beauty, spirit, and community surrounding the holiday. From light displays to decorated churches and inns, spectacular private homes, festivals, carolers, town greens, and picturesque villages, this beautiful book of images takes readers on a magical holiday tour through the Nutmeg State. There is also an event and location listing in the back of the book for residents and tourists who love all things Christmas which is why this book has an appeal beyond the Nutmeg State.
Here is what celebrated chef, author and Connecticut resident, Jacques Pépin, has said about A Connecticut Christmas, “A Connecticut Christmas is a sentimental journey through the lore of Connecticut and makes you want to sing Irving Berlin’s ‘White Christmas.’ The beautiful pictures celebrate the marvelous diversity, beauty, and spirit of the Nutmeg State . . . this heartwarming book makes you smile.”
