Nov 20 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm
Books & Brews: Brian Girasoli @ Cafe Otis | Norwich | Connecticut | United States

Come join us as local author Brian Girasoli discusses his book The Norwich Free Academy v. New London Football Rivalry. We’re lucky to have him in the cafe during the month of November because the big rivalry game just so happens to happen on November 27th.

Brian Girasoli was born and raised in the area, spending all but his first six months in North Franklin. After graduating from Norwich Free Academy in 1994, he earned a Bachelor of Arts in English at the University of Connecticut and a Masters degree in journalism at Quinnipiac University. He spent 15 years as a sportswriter and editor at the Norwich Bulletin, and since 2012 has been an English teacher at Lyman Memorial High School in Lebanon. He and his wife, Lauren – who also is an English teacher, at NFA – have a 5-month-old daughter, Cecilia, and two cats, Kit Kat and Tiramisu. The family lives in Old Lyme in a house that Lauren’s grandparents built in 1946.

Signed copies of the book will be available for purchase.
