Author Event: Charles Monagan

Thursday, September 29th at 6:30 p.m. in the Community Room
Charles Monagan
Like many who grew up in Waterbury, Connecticut, Charles Monagan became familiar with Carrie Welton’s name due to the presence of a striking drinking fountain for horses, topped by a life-size bronze stallion, known familiarly as the Carrie Welton Fountain. Much later, he became intrigued with the scant, but colorful details of Carrie’s youth and her terrible death. He then took up the challenge of giving her a full life in fiction.

Carrie Welton is Monagan’s first novel and earned an “Editor’s Choice” designation from the Historical Novel Society. His other books include The Neurotic’s Handbook, The Reluctant Naturalist, and How to Get a Monkey into Harvard. Additionally, he wrote the book and lyrics for the musical Mad Bomber, which was produced in 2011 and won first place in the Academy for New Musical Theatre’s 2012 international Search for New Musicals. He was the editor of Connecticut Magazine from 1989 to 2013.
