Visions and Versions of America: Three Views From Fiction at Wilton Library: 4-5:30 p.m. In this presidential election year, we are reminded the Federalist philosophy reflected in the Electoral College system envisions an America that is not a single homogenized nation but an amalgam of states and regions.
