Book Signing with Jerry Roberts!
Join us for the action-packed presentation of author and historian Jerry Roberts on Saturday, September 6 at 4:00 pm! Roberts' vivid narrative on the British Raid on Essex brings the historic (yet nearly forgotten!) event to life. In addition to telling this dynamic story and signing copies of his book, Roberts will update the community on battlesite projects including the recent installation of EHS' new site markers. Roberts' captivating account will culminate in the premiere of an eight minute mini-documentary that ties past to present with the inclusion of the May 10th bicentennial celebration.
A complimentary wine and cheese reception will be held after the presentation, during which books will be available for purchase and signing.
Please RSVP by September 3rd to 860.767.5011
