Refreshments following lecture


Town Greens are thought of as relics of another time, but as residents of Connecticut they are part of our lives.

In fact, over 170 public spaces remain on which we can walk where our ancestors and predecessors walked. Author Eric D. Lehman will tell the remarkable story of these time machines that put us in touch with thousands of people over hundreds of years, from the past to the future.


Mr. Lehman will be selling and signing copies of his book, “Connecticut Town Greens”.


If weather permits, we will take a short stroll to Norwalk’s Historic Green.
