Event to launch One Book, One Lake
The Brookfield Library will present a slideshow documentary about the creation of Candlewood Lake in the late 1920s.
The event, which starts at at 2 p.m., is part of the One Book, One Lake summer reading program in New Milford, Sherman, Brookfield, Danbury and New Fairfield.
To commemorate the 150th anniversary of the beginning of the Civil War, residents from the Greater New Milford and Danbury areas are invited to read "The Killer Angels" by Michael Shaara as part of the One Book, One Lake program.
The book is available at the libraries in each of the communities.
