Author to discuss diners in talk at Derby library

DERBY - The Derby Public Library welcomes Garrison Leykam at 6:30 p.m. Feb. 24 to discuss his book, Classic Diners of Connecticut.  

More than 100 diners dot the 20,000 miles of roadways in Connecticut.
This book celebrates the buildings, local recipes, and diner lingo, as well as stories that make each diner unique. 

One of the diners featured, Tony’s Diner in Seymour, still keeps pictures of the 1955 flood to always remember the tragedy the diner overcame.  
More stories of triumph, comfort and community fill the pages in this celebration of Connecticut diners.  
Leykam is not only an author, but also the reality television host and producer of Diners that aired on CPTV.  He currently hosts the online radio program Those Diner and Motorcycle Guys which has more than a million listeners.

Registration is requested.
For more information, stop by the Library at 313 Elizabeth St., call 203-736-1482 or visit    

This is a press release from Cathy Williams, Director, Derby Public Library.
