Former Conn. Congressman Robert H. Steele Discusses His New Novel on Casino Gambling; Sunday, November, 18, 2012

Sunday  3:30 pm to 4:30 pm

Former Conn. Congressman Robert Steele discusses his new novel “The Curse: Big-Time Gambling’s Seduction of a Small New England Town.” Now availalble from Levellers Press, it begins in 1637 with the massacre of the Pequot Indians and a Pequot sachem’s curse on an English soldier. The story jumps 350 years as the soldier’s descendant battles to stop a fictional Indian tribe from building a casino that threatens his town and ancestral home. The lure of easy money drives everyone, from the tribe’s chief to a shadowy Miami billionaire, venal politicians, and mobsters, while a small Connecticut town must choose between preserving its character or accepting a proposal that will change it forever.
