Connecticut Authors and Books

Goals

To have a list of famous Connecticut authors and their 1-2 most famous books, and additionally, to have a list of books with the plot being based in Connecticut published over the last 10 years.

Early Findings

Famous Connecticut Authors

Summary Of Our Early Findings Relevant To The Goals

  • Our initial hour of research provided 22 famous Connecticut authors, along with the titles to one or more of their books.
  • As there was no direction given as to what defined whether they were "Connecticut authors" we assumed a very broad approach and included those that were born there, those that had moved there, those that died there, and those that had a residence there. If a different approach should have been taken, that would clearly have to be communicated to us in any reply.
  • We did not have enough time in the initial hour of research to provide a list of books with the plot being based mainly in Connecticut published in the last decade.
  • Please select one or more of the options provided in the proposed scoping section below.

Proposed next steps:

You need to be the project owner to select a next step.
We are suggesting research that provides a list of 7-10 books with the plot being based in Connecticut that have been published over the last 10 years. For each book identified, we will provide the name of the book, a brief synopsis of the plot, where in Connecticut it is set, and the name of the author. Please check this box if we should proceed with this research.
We are also suggesting leveraging the initial research of the 22 famous Connecticut authors and their 1-2 most famous books by providing a targeted biography about each author that mainly centers on their life in Connecticut and/or how Connecticut touched their lives. Please check this box if we should proceed with this research.
