Summary

Strawberry festivals and sailing regattas. Lazy days on the beach and twilight concerts on the green. A colonial house with candles in the windows. A sleigh ride in snow, white churches, and snowy woods. The seasons in Connecticut are all this and more. Seasons of Connecticut is a beautiful, four-color celebration of the Nutmeg state by a celebrated television and radio reporter who has told the stories of the people and places of Connecticut for two decades. Its sixty vignettes - inspiring, warm, funny, and sometimes downright strange - will make residents feel good about living in Connecticut, and make others want to visit, revealing the beauty and the personality of the state throughout the year.
