“Making Freedom” finds wide exposure

Wesleyan UP’s book Making Freedom: The Extraordinary Life of Venture Smith is finding its way into more libraries across Connecticut. 850 copies of the book will be donated to libraries statewide, thanks to co-author Chandler Saint and congresswoman Rosa DeLauro. The distribution project was announced ┬áby five members of Connecticut’s congressional delegation, at a press conference held at the state Capitol earlier this week.
