As part of the 11th Annual Connecticut Authors Trail, Christopher Wigren will be at the Bill Memorial Library on Saturday, July 13, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. to share his book, Connecticut Architecture: Stories of 100 Places. Christopher Wigren is an architectural historian and Deputy Director of the Connecticut Trust for Historic Preservation. His articles have appeared in the Hartford Courant, the New Haven Register and Connecticut Explored magazine. He lives in New Haven, CT.

Connecticut boasts some of the oldest and most distinctive architecture in New England, from Colonial churches and modernist houses to refurbished nineteenth century factories. Connecticut’s history includes landscapes of small farmsteads, country churches, urban streets, tobacco sheds, libraries, quiet maritime villages and town greens. In his guide to this rich and diverse architectural heritage, Mr. Wigren introduces readers to 100 unique places across Connecticut.
