Constant Waterman at The Essex Library

Essex’s familiar Griswold Inn is pictured in Landmarks You Must Visit in Southeast Connecticut by Constant Waterman (Matthew Goldman) who will speak at the Essex Library Thursday, May 12 at 7 p.m.

Constant Waterman, also known as Matthew Goldman, will read from his four self illustrated books at The Essex Library on Thursday, 12 May at 7 p.m. 

Goldman’s first book, The Journals of Constant Waterman: Paddling, Poling, and Sailing for the Love of It, is a collection of introspective, lively, and often wry memoirs. His second book, Landmarks You Must Visit in Southeast Connecticut, gives brief histories, complimented by his pen and ink drawings, of better and lesser known landmarks about the mouth of the Connecticut River and along the coast to Rhode Island. In Vincus the Invisible Divulges His Secret Recipe for Maple Pistachio Birch Beer Raspberry Ripple, he introduces Vincus the Griffin, who cleans up The Endless Forest and also makes huge batches of a unique ice cream. In Vincus the Invisible Visits Planet Earth, Vincus the Griffin flies through the Reality Warp to Planet Earth to rescue Galumph the Horse. Afterwards, he pays a visit to Lady Giselle to teach her how to save the last endangered species in The Real World.      

After his reading the author will sign copies provided by Essex Books. To register for this program, please call the Essex Library at 860-767-1560.
