A photo that I took and posted originally on my Another Old Movie Blog about the Warner Theatre of Torrington, Connecticut, now graces the cover of a new publication devoted to the arts of Torrington and Litchfield County. It's called Let's Talk Torrington, and is the creation of Edward Cannata, who along with co-publisher Susan Read, are enthusiastic supporters of their community and its rich offerings of art and music.
Each issue features a centerfold map of the town with local businesses and attractions highlighted, and excellent articles on Litchfield County activities, sports, the arts, and health, home, and lifestyle features.
The next issue to be published in September will include an interview with me on my Litchfield-Torrington centered novel, the third in my mystery series: Dismount and Murder, which is set during a horse show. The annual Litchfield Horse Show was once a staple in the community back in the 1950s when the story takes place.
I'll post more on the next issue of Let's Talk Torrington when it is published. Have a look at this website to see where you can find your complimentary copy.
Ann Blyth: Actress. Singer. Star.
by Jacqueline T. Lynch
The first book on the career of actress Ann Blyth. Multitalented and remarkably versatile, Blyth began on radio as a child, appeared on Broadway at the age of twelve in Lillian Hellman's Watch on the Rhine, and enjoyed a long and diverse career in films, theatre, television, and concerts. A sensitive dramatic actress, the youngest at the time to be nominated for her role in Mildred Pierce (1945), she also displayed a gift for comedy, and was especially endeared to fans for her expressive and exquisite lyric soprano, which was showcased in many film and stage musicals. Still a popular guest at film festivals, lovely Ms. Blyth remains a treasure of the Hollywood's golden age.
The eBook and paperback are available from Amazon and CreateSpace, which is the printer. You can also order it from my Etsy shop. It is also available at the Broadside Bookshop, 247 Main Street, Northampton, Massachusetts.
