2011-08-03

Connecticut libraries will host a variety of local authors throughout summer with the finale to take place in The Cabaret Theatre on September 22nd

Mohegan Sun is excited to announce that The Connecticut Authors Trail, which consists of a consortium of libraries in eastern Connecticut in addition to featuring some of the most prominent and talented authors who either live in or are associated with the Nutmeg State, will return for Its third straight year to Mohegan Sun.  The event is set to take place in The Cabaret Theatre on Thursday, September 22nd, showcasing the incredible author, Jane Green.  Other library signing dates will feature authors like Todd Gipstein, Jan Kardys, Janice Law, Tommy Coletti, Christine Whitehead, Rosemary Harris and David Howard.
British import Jane Green is the author of twelve best-selling novels, dealing with real women, real life, and all the things life throws at them, with her trademark wisdom, wit and warmth.  Her first novel was a huge success in England and it would pave the way for a remarkable career in writing.  From The Other Woman to Second Chance to the incredibly popular The Beach House, Jane has become synonymous with complex, character driven story telling that explores the concerns of real women’s lives.  As well as writing a regular on JaneGreen.com, she contributes to various publications, both online and print, including Huffington Post, The Sunday Times and Self.
Her latest novel, Promises to Keep, was released earlier this year to critical and public acclaim.  The book follows the happily married and much adored friend and relative Callie Perry through quite the journey as her life takes a huge turn when she receives a difficult diagnoses.  The Chicago Tribune praised the latest book with “In Promises to Keep, Green weaves a profoundly moving tale that will enthrall both new and old fans.”
The Connecticut Authors Trail focuses on some of the state’s most brilliant authors and takes pride in bringing together a diverse collection of writers whose styles cover everything from suspense thrillers to romantic novels and self-help to local libraries across eastern Connecticut. All programs are free and open to the public. Passports will be available at the participating libraries throughout the summer as a guide to the author events. Have your passport stamped at each author event for a chance to qualify for an exclusive pre-program Meet & Greet with Jane Green on Thursday, September 22nd in The Cabaret Theatre at Mohegan Sun.
