Event Description

On September 24 at 6:30 p.m. Wallingford Public Library hosts Tarn Granucci, author of the new book Legendary Locals of Wallingford (Arcadia Publishing 2015). The book includes the prominent, the famous, and the infamous personalities of the town of Wallingford both past and present. Doors will open at 6:00 p.m. and seating is limited.

Legendary Locals of Wallingford is about the fabric of community and the enormous range of people with every kind of motivation for being part of the town. Evident in the pages of the book is that Wallingford inspires a love of community and the townspeople are committed to those who have supported their businesses, educated their children, and protected them in so many ways.

Wallingford has produced a number of people of celebrity, including Morton Downey, the famous singer and songwriter of the 1920s and 1930s, and also his son Morton Downey Jr., who earned a name for himself in the TV talk show world; Beverly Donofrio authored Riding in Cars With Boys; Maureen Moore acts on Broadway; sculptor Robert Gober recently completed a major show at MOMA in New York; and Maj. Raoul Lufbery was a renowned World War I flying ace. These and more are celebrated here.

Tarn Granucci has spent most of his life living in Wallingford. He and his family owned a number of retail establishments serving homeowners, and thus, he came to know most people in the community. The public is invited to hear the Tarn’s presentation and celebrate the community of Wallingford. A reception will follow in the library’s lower lobby. Books will be available for $20, cash or check accepted.
