Tuesday, October 15, 6:30 p.m., Join local author Betty Krasne of Kent, in conversation with Washington resident Diana Varlay as they discuss Betty's recently released novel The Good Life? at Gunn Memorial Library in Washington. Free and open to the public. What does it take to lead the good life? All the characters in Krasne's new novel have carefully crafted plans, but over the course of a year, as their paths cross they are forced to rethink what it is they value most. The Good Life? joins a long tradition of American stories about small towns that contain the world. Set in fictional Lynnfield in Northwest CT against the backdrop of 1980's excess the story is a blend of characters - some "weekenders" and some locals. They start off as strangers and become connected in unexpected ways as the narrative unfolds. Books will be available for sale and signing at the event.
