Museum After Dark: Connecticut Icons
September 20 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pmFree – $5
As editor of Connecticut Magazine from 1989-2013, Charles Monagan spent years discovering and describing the people, places and things that make up the character of his home state. In 2000, he began writing a “Connecticut Icons” page every month in the magazine, and in 2006, the collection was published by Globe Pequot and sold out three printings. In 2017, Connecticut Icons has been reissued, with updates and additional icons. In this entertaining collection of photos, anecdotes, and little-known facts, Monagan presents dozens of his favorite things in Connecticut—from the hot lobster roll to the Yale Bowl, the U.S.S. Nautilus to the Merritt Parkway—and shows native and newcomer alike the independent spirit and local pride at the heart of this great state.
Presented with thanks to Alan and Sylvia Neigher.
Members: Free; Non-Members: $5. Reception from 6:30 – 7pm. Presentation at 7pm.
