Book Talk

SOUTH WINDSOR — In honor of African-American History month, Book Club Bookstore, 869 Sullivan Ave., and author/Hartford researcher Barbara J. Beeching will explore the origins of the black middle class in Hartford at 2 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 17.

A short presentation will be followed by a discussion on the topic based on Beeching's recently published book, "Hopes and Expectations." This is a free event with light refreshments. Signed copies of the book will be available for sale. This event is co-sponsored by the South Windsor Alliance for Progress.

Based on a treasure trove of more than two hundred personal letters written in the 1860s, Hopes and Expectations tells the story of three young African Americans in the North. Through extensive archival research, Beeching shows how the Primus family intersects with changes over time in Hartford's black community and the country.
