The Connecticut River Valley is rich in both novelists and history. Forbes Library is a place where novelists come to research and write alongside others interested in local history and literature. The Local History/Local Novelists series, now in its fourth year, invites the community to enjoy and join in the conversation between history and fiction that both engages and creates our changing cultures.
