Erik Hesselberg will be appearing at the Lyme Public Library to make a presentation about his new book Night Boat to New York: Steamboats on the Connecticut, 1815-1931.

Erik Hesselberg has been writing about the Connecticut River for over 20 years. His deep devotion to environmental protection combined with his keen interest in cultural history makes him a fascinating lecturer on the river’s place in the American experience.
