This third volume of Hartford continues the celebration and remembrance of Connecticutâs capital that was started with Wilson H. Faudeâs first two highly successful volumes on the history of the city. This new volume features the hitherto unavailable collection of the cityâs evening newspaper, the Hartford Times. This third trip into Hartfordâs past takes us into the lives and celebrations of the cityâs residents. The fascinating images bring us into Hartfordâs unique celebrations, including Discovery Day and the Tobacco Festival. We also get a glimpse of how the cityâs residents interpreted traditional holidays, with photographs depicting St. Patrickâs Day revelry and shoppers braving holiday retail madness. As you peruse the pages, remember the Times Carol Sing and the Times Camp; remember when presidential hopefuls spoke from the cityâs portico, vying for Hartfordâs support. It is all here in Arcadia Publishingâs third volume of Hartford.
The revival of the St. Patrickâs Day parade in New Haven is a fantastic story. The parade was organized in 1842 as the captivating centerpiece of the cityâs St. Patrickâs Day observance, yet it passed from the urban scene in the early 20th century. For 50 years, it faded from memory; however, New Havenâs Irish community retained a strong determination to honor its patron saint and celebrate its heritage. In 1956, they breathed new life into the venerable tradition. Within New Havenâs St. Patrickâs Day Parade, readers will discover the inception of this joyful event and how, over the last half century, it has grown and thrived.

Once again, Faith Vicinanza has given us a book of poetry which leads us into the oncoming traffic. The lights blind us, the horns confuse us, and then up ahead we see an outstretched hand to return us safely home. Perhaps there should be a sign on the front cover stating "You must stand this high, before reading this book" or "Those with weak hearts..." It's probably best for all of us that Faith is an incredibly gifted poet, not a taxi cab driver. This book shares a personal journey: where she has been and how she got there to here, both in her life and in her poetry. Faith takes the reader to shadowy, difficult places. The reader gains insight about choices and about where strength can be found. Even before you notice the craft in the poems, you are struck with their honesty, which is nothing short of redemptive.
