Join us for the debut of our new Local Spotlight book talk series, featuring Anastasia Mills Healy, Greenwich-based author of the recently released 100 Things to Do In Connecticut Before You Die. 

Did you know that in Connecticut you can float over farmland in a hot air balloon, admire stunning private gardens, walk among life-size dinosaurs, drive a race car, and take a sightseeing cruise through a picturesque archipelago? Instead of scrolling through pages of internet search results, the new book 100 Things to Do in Connecticut Before You Die provides a curated list of the best of the best of the state in the categories of Food & Drink, Culture & History, Music & Entertainment, Sports & Recreation, and Shopping & Fashion.

With glittering casinos, amusement parks, destination-worthy architecture, and museums showcasing everything from Impressionist art to World War II aircraft, Connecticut packs a big punch for a small state. Whether you’re a jazz fan or history buff, baseball lover or antiques hunter, you’ll find plenty of ideas in the book to keep you, your family, and your guests busy. How many have you done?

Books may be purchased at the Museum Store in advance or on the day of the program for signing by the author. Admission to the talk is FREE, but space is limited and registration is recommended.
