On Thursday, Dec. 6, The Watermark at 3030 Park will present Trumbull author Bernice Rocque as part of its acclaimed monthly Book and Author Series. Rocque will discuss her book, Until the Robin Walks on Snow. The event begins at 2 p.m. at the retirement community located at 3030 Park Ave. in Bridgeport.
Until the Robin Walks on Snow takes place in 1922 in a rural town in Eastern Connecticut, and tells the story of an immigrant family and midwife struggling to save a 1.5 pound premature baby. Babies weighing less than three pounds in the 1920s rarely survived longer than a few weeks. This fact-based story explores the depths of determination, family unity, faith and friendship that prevail during challenging circumstances.
