Meet the Author


Stratford’s John Sobolewski “Meet the Author” Event
Monday, June 24th, 7 PM
Stratford Library’s Lovell Room
Free and open to the public

The Stratford Library will host Stratford author John Sobolewski, Jr. to discuss his new book, Hallamore: A True Story, which examines the largest crane, rigging and heavy hauling company in New England, and its relation to Stratford.

Truck driver John Sobolewski Jr. and his sixteen-year adventure with the Hallamore Motor Transportation Company is his story about the flatbed and heavy haul division of trucking, and about the load after load of all the machinery that came out of the factories that started closing in the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s. 

Sobolewski’s story is also about all the factories in Stratford and Bridgeport, as he transported over 2,000 over-sized loads across the country without a chargeable accident or any speeding tickets.

Autographed copies of Sobolewski’s book will be available for purchase following his talk.
