Former Conn. Congressman Robert H. Steele Discusses Novel on Casino Gambling

Wednesday   TIME:  6:30 pm to 7:30 pm

Former Congressman Robert Steele discusses his novel “The Curse: Big-Time Gambling’s Seduction of a Small New England Town.” Meticulously researched, the story begins in 1637 with the massacre of the Pequot Indians and a Pequot sachem’s curse aimed at the young English soldier who is about to kill him. The tale then jumps 350 years as the soldier’s 13th-generation descendant becomes embroiled in a battle to stop a fictional 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 Providence mobsters, while a small Connecticut town must choose between preserving its character or accepting an extraordinary proposal that will change it forever.
