Tonight August 21st @ 7pm at the New Canaan Library


Anyone concerned about the state of American poetry should put aside his or her thesis notes and pick up a copy of 3 Sections. . .Mr.Seshadri is talented and assured enough to lay his self-consciousness bare on the page with a generous, fluid, avuncular wit reminiscent of W.H. Auden.”—The American Reader

The King’s Curse tells the story of Margaret Pole, one of the few members of the Plantagenet House to survive the Wars of the Roses. Once a badge of honour, the name of her family now means that Margaret is in deadly danger - and it will take all of her wit and ingenuity to survive.

When Paris Went Dark: The City of Light Under German Occupation, 1940-1944

The spellbinding and revealing chronicle of Nazi-occupied Paris

On June 14, 1940, German tanks entered a silent and nearly deserted Paris. Eight days later, France accepted a humiliating defeat and foreign occupation. Subsequently, an eerie sense of normalcy settled over the City of Light. Many Parisians keenly adapted themselves to the situation-even allied themselves with their Nazi overlords. At the same time, amidst this darkening gloom of German ruthlessness, shortages, and curfews, a resistance arose. Parisians of all stripes-Jews, immigrants, adolescents, communists, rightists, cultural icons such as Colette, de Beauvoir, Camus and Sartre, as well as police officers, teachers, students, and store owners-rallied around a little known French military officer, Charles de Gaulle.
