  1. My 11th grade U.S. History class was encouraged to volunteer at our town historical society (Darien Historical Society). We worked on making an index of topics covered in old newspapers in the museum collection and it was a very interesting project. That was 25 years ago and I'm still working for historical societies!

    The Director of the Darien Historical Society at that time was Patricia Wall. Last night I was pleased to learn that she has recently published an historical fiction book for youth about the topic of slavery in New England, self-published at Fall Rose Books
