Author Talk: Janet Barrett’s, They Called Her Reckless

Author Janet Barrett visits The Fairfield Public Library to talk about her book, They Called Her Reckless, on Thursday, Sept. 17, at 7 p.m., in the Rotary Room at the Main Library, 1080 Old Post Road.

They Called Her Reckless, based on the recollections of more than 60 Marines, is the story of a U.S. platoon during the Korean War that acquired a small pony to haul ammunition up the steep hills to the front lines. The courageous and indomitable Reckless stood with her buddies for two years, saving many lives, raising spirits and winning the love and respect of all. Books will be available for purchase and signing at this event. Registration is requested.

Janet Barrett’s experiences as a horsewoman gave her a particular appreciation for the tight bond that developed between Reckless and her fellow Marines. She has been fascinated by horses all her life and rode, owned and cared for them for 25 years.

All programs at the Fairfield Public Library are free. To register, or for more information about this and other programs, visit us online at: or call 203-256-3160. Follow the Fairfield Public library on Twitter: and Facebook:
