The Norwalk Public Library’s AuthorSpeak series will welcome Doug Jones of Wilton in a discussion of The Music in My Life, the autobiography of his wife of more than 60 years, opera singer Betty Jones. He will speak Friday, June 30, at noon, in the main auditorium at 1 Belden Avenue, Norwalk. A light lunch will be provided courtesy of the library.
At the improbable age of 41, Betty Jones went from being a full-time mother, who sang alto at the Wilton Congregational Church for 20 years, to auditioning for the New York City Opera. She was accepted to sing Verdi and Wagner.
