Book Signing: Wabanaki Blues by Melissa Tantaquidgeon Zobel, August 1, 1pm-3pm.  Mona Lisa LaPierre is a 17-year-old Native American/French Canadian blues musician who becomes embroiled in the unsolved murder case of another musical teen killed at her Hartford high school 20 years ago. When Mona's parents send her to live with her grandfather in rustic New Hampshire, she derives insights about the murder, her music, & her place in the universe. Mona learns that to achieve what she most wants, she must sacrifice what she most loves.  Author Melissa Tantaquidgeon Zobel is a citizen of the Mohegan Tribe of Indians of Connecticut.  Mt.
