The newest must-have Waterbury item was released recently. Wicked Waterbury: Madmen & Mayhem in the Brass City, researched and written by Edith Reynolds and John Murray, reveals some of the more titillating events in the city's history (prior to 1980--I'm sure they could get another volume out of events from 1980 to the present!).
John Murray is the publisher of The Observer monthly newspaper. Ede Reynolds owns The John Bale Book Company and JoBa Cafe on Grand Street. On Thursday, February 12, from noon until 2 p.m., Ede will be signing copies of the book and sharing a "wicked dessert" for each book purchase, at John Bale. If you can't make it to the book signing, you can still purchase copies of the book through the John Bale website.
