Writing About What's Right - Visit with Ed Edelson
Play • 26 min

In this episode, host Sandy Carlson (www.sandycarlson.net) speaks with Ed Edelson, a former first selectman of Southbury and a retired businessman and innkeeper, about Lois’s Story, Ed’s self-published book for children that tells how the people of Southbury kept the Nazis from building a military training camp in the Kettletown area in 1937. 

This is a story of civic engagement that Ed has worked doggedly to put in the public eye and keep it there. The story is part of the Region 15 curriculum for fourth graders, and curriculum resources are available from the Connecticut State Department of Education. Check out resources about the book, the curriculum, and the time in history that the book recounts.

Woodbury Writes is a production of Woodbury Public Library. Marla Martin and Ron Fairchild are the executive producers. Sandy Carlson, poet laureate of Woodbury, CT, is the host.
