Wadsworth Atheneum


A beautifully illustrated four-season celebration of the Nutmeg state by
Emmy award-winning journalist and native Diane Smith. Roses displaying their first delicate blooms. Farmer’s markets and sailing regattas. Giant pumpkins in time for Halloween. A sleigh ride, white churches, and snowy woods. The four seasons are why many of us live in Connecticut and why others visit. In other parts of America, it may be warm or rainy all year, or snowy and cold for lengthy stretches. In Connecticut we take pleasure in four seasons that are distinctly different.

This is a full-color, season-by-season celebration of the Nutmeg state by celebrated television and radio reporter Diane Smith, who has told the stories of the people and places of Connecticut for two decades. She presents more than sixty vignettes—inspiring, warm, funny, and sometimes downright strange—that will make you feel good about living in Connecticut, or make you want to visit. From a springtime kite-flying festival to country fair cook-offs in summer, and from fall wine tastings to UConn Huskies basketball in winter, the stories reveal the beauty and the personality of the state throughout the year.
