Gillette Castle has gone missing! And after all the hype I’ve been giving it on the blog lately, you can now finally join the young sleuths in solving the mystery in The Great Connecticut Caper. Chapter one goes lives today! (You can see I’m speaking in exclamation points!) Follow along at http://ctcaper.cthumanities.org/ as a new chapter is posted every two weeks and for fun activities as well.
The story has been getting some great local press coverage (see these great stories from the CT Post, which includes quotes from the illustrator of chapter two, the one I wrote; the Middletown Press; and NBC Connecticut), but it’s not just for my CT peeps. Any young or young at heart reader will enjoy the CT Caper. Make sure to regularly check out the blog here, too, as I’ll be hosting some of the other authors and illustrators on the weeks their chapters go live.
And if you are local, there’s still time to sign up to attend the launch party at the Wadsworth Atheneum in Hartford, CT, this Wednesday, January 7 from 4:30 pm to 6:30 pm. There will also be a launch party later in the month in New Haven (details to come).
