Author Event - Sharon Dukett

South Windsor native to discuss her memoir, “No Rules,” on Feb. 17 at a Tolland Public Library online author visit

     Sharon Dukett of Portland, Connecticut will discuss her colorful coming-of-age memoir on Zoom on Wednesday, Feb. 17 at 7 p.m. in an author visit sponsored by the Tolland Public Library Foundation.
     In “No Rules: A Memoir,” Dukett describes leaving her sheltered home life in South Windsor at age 16 in 1971 to join the hippies in California. As she crossed the U.S. and Canada for a decade – by hitchhiking, bicycling or on the back of a motorcycle - she experienced love and heartbreak, who she can and cannot trust, and awakens to the Women’s Liberation movement.
     In the book, Dukett reflects upon the changes that reshaped her during that time and how the women’s liberation has empowered the lives of girls and women today.
     No Rules was a finalist for the International Book Awards, the Best Book Awards and the Readers’ Favorite Book Awards.

     Dukett is a retired deputy director in state government, a former project manager, and was president of her consulting company, Paradigm Associates LTD. She is now working on a thriller novel about the climate crisis.
      Dukett is the latest author to speak as part of the 10-year-old Eaton-Dimock-King Authors Series, which is sponsored by the library foundation.
      Since 2010, the EDK series has brought well-known authors to Tolland, including Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists Dan Barry, Steven G. Smith and Susan Campbell; Sari Rosenblatt, Chris Knopf, Caragh O’Brien, Dawn Metcalf, Denis Horgan, Jeff Goldberg, Cindy Rodriguez, Susan Schoenberger and Lucy Anne Hurston.
