Holiday Boutique Special Events
On December 3 from 11:30 to 12:30 pm, Caryn Davis will be at Holiday Boutique signing copies of her new book, A Connecticut Christmas: Celebrating the Holiday in Classic New England Style.
A Connecticut Christmas is a photographic journey celebrating classic New England traditions, beauty, spirit, and community surrounding the holiday. From light displays to decorated churches and inns, spectacular private homes, festivals, carolers, town greens, and picturesque villages, this beautiful book of images takes readers on a magical holiday tour through the Nutmeg State. There is also an event and location listing in the back of the book for residents and tourists who love all things Christmas which is why this book has an appeal beyond the Nutmeg State.
Here is what celebrated chef, author and Connecticut resident, Jacques Pépin, has said about A Connecticut Christmas: “A Connecticut Christmas is a sentimental journey through the lore of Connecticut and makes you want to sing Irving Berlin’s ‘White Christmas.’ The beautiful pictures celebrate the marvelous diversity, beauty, and spirit of the Nutmeg State . . . this heartwarming book makes you smile.” – Jacques Pépin
