DIANE SMITH IN WEST HARTFORD FOR BOOK EVENT

In the midst of rave reviews from various critics and publications, Diane Smith will be in West Hartford Thursday to sign copies of her new book, Seasons of Connecticut. The Emmy Award-winning news anchor, producer, reporter, TV journalist, and radio talk show host will be at the Barnes and Noble in West Hartford Center at 7 pm.

Seasons is Smith’s fifth book. It joins Positively Connecticut, Absolutely Positively Connecticut, Christmas in Connecticut and Summer in Connecticut. They are based on her wonderful television series, “Positively Connecticut.” Smith actively promotes Connecticut business and tourism and is well known for “showing Connecticut to the rest of the world in a positive light.”

The Shad’s coffee table is adorned with Diane’s books. And they make wonderful gifts for out-of-town friends and relatives who visit.
