Meeting a Connecticut Gem at WTNH Channel 8 TV

Last week I was invited to talk about my books with Ann Nyberg of WTNH in Connecticut. Such a wonderfully welcoming person! It was a pleasure to meet her and the whole news team that I've been watching for years. The interview will be broadcast Tuesday, February 21, 2023 and then will be posted on the WTNH Nyberg webpage.

 I felt right at home until the robotic cameras zoomed in!
