On 4 August I posted an entry about a a new rowing book published by Lyons Press in Connecticut, Men of Kent by Rick Rinehart. The book is about nine boys from Kent School in the northwest corner of Connecticut who went to the Henley Royal Regatta in the beginning of the 1970s. They were coached by Hart Perry, who later would become the first foreigner to be elected a Steward at Henley.
This Saturday, 16 October, Rick Rinehart is doing a book signing between 3 and 5 at Mystic Seaport Museum Bookstore on 75 Greenmanville Ave., Mystic. Call 860-572-5386 for more information or to get a signed copy set aside for you.
