#Hartford Private Eye @JBprivateeye @HuntedCBS Featured @betterct @WFSBnews & @hartfordcourant

We talked to the crew of the show "Hunted" a few weeks ago, now we're chatting with Jacquie Bainer, one of the "hunters" on the show!

  • "On 'Hunted,' people are working in real time the way law enforcement does. I'm used to tracking people down and people hiding from me who don't want to talk about the case I'm investigating, but doing this in real time was just thrilling for me."

    DECEMBER AT THE AUTHOR'S TABLE- James Herbert Smith, 'A Boy’s Life in the Baby Boom: True Tales from Small Town America' @HPLCT @IPNE

    Thursday, Dec. 8, 4-7 pm, Hartford Public Library

    A memoir about growing up in the post-war baby boom, which takes us back to a freedom in childhood unheard of today. As the first boomers turn 70 this year, Smith among them… The memoir reminds us of both the travails and the ecstasy of being a kid, a teen-ager, and maturing through failure and success.

    James Herbert Smith was born in the first year of the Baby Boom, 1946, and grew up in Pittsford, NY, the setting of this book. As a young father he moved to Connecticut and began a career in Journalism, where for nearly five decades he wrote and edited thousands of stories for what has been called “the first draft of history” in our daily newspapers. He lives in Connecticut with his wife Jacqueline, also a journalist.
