Opinionated Women in the Land of Steady Habits Discussion
March 7, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Veteran Connecticut journalist, James Herbert Smith, will be on hand at Bethel’s Byrd’s Books for a discussion and signing of his fifth book, Opinionated Women in the Land of Steady Habits, on Thursday, March 7th at 7:00pm to 8:30pm. Yes, his wife, Jacky, the editorial page editor of The News-Times, will be there. So will Linda Tuccio-Koonz, entertainment feature writer for Hearst Connecticut Media, and Jane Stern, Connecticut’s go-to food columnist.
All three are among the women who’ve been published in Connecticut newspapers from the 1950s to the present day (including a flashback to 1828) profiled in the book. Each is a singular voice – covering art, fashion, nature, open government, politics, health care, sports and high society events. Collectively, their voices glimmer with facets of recent history, revealed with clarity, honesty, humor and vision.
The event is free and open to the public. To save a spot or pre-order a book, visit conta.cc/2XgjHGv
Byrd’s Books is located at 178 Greenwood Avenue, adjacent to The Toy Room and the nearby landmarked Opera House, across the street from the Bethel Public Library.
