Local Author Anastasia Mills Healy will discuss her latest book, 100 Things to Do in Connecticut Before You Die, on Wednesday, March 6, at 7 pm in the Program Room, Radcliffe Children’s Library, Perrot Memorial Library.

Did you know that in Connecticut you can encounter 50 life-size dinosaurs, float over farmland in a hot air balloon, admire stunning private gardens, and take a sightseeing cruise through a picturesque archipelago? Instead of scrolling through pages of search results, the new book 100 Things to Do in Connecticut Before You Die provides a curated list of the best of the best of the state in the categories of Food & Drink, Arts & Culture, Music & Entertainment, Sports & Recreation, and Shopping & Fashion.

With glittering casinos, amusement parks, destination-worthy architecture, and museums showcasing everything from American art to World War II aircraft, Connecticut packs a big punch for a small state. Whether you’re a jazz fan or a history buff, baseball lover or antiques hunter, you’ll find plenty of ideas in the book to keep you and your guests busy.

A former editor at Condé Nast Traveler, Fodor’s, and Travel Agent, Anastasia Mills Healy is a Greenwich-based writer and editor who has written about Connecticut for Time Out, Lonely Planet, and Business Insider. She’s also the author of the well-reviewed book Secret Connecticut: A Guide to the Weird, Wonderful, and Obscure.
