The Last Book Party is a propulsive tale of ambition and romance, set in the publishing world of 1980’s New York and the timeless beaches of Cape Cod.
Karen Dukess has a work history as eclectic as her taste in books. She has been a tour guide in the former Soviet Union, a newspaper reporter in Florida, a magazine, puhere:blisher, in Russia and, for nearly a decade, a speechwriter on gender equality for the United Nations Development Programme. She has blogged on raising boys for The Huffington Post and written book reviews for USA Today. She has a degree in Russian Studies from Brown University and a Master’s in Journalism from Columbia University. She lives with her family near New York City and spends as much time as possible in Truro on Cape Cod. The Last Book Party, which the New York Times called “a spare, bittersweet page-turner,” is her debut novel.
This event is co-sponsored by the Larchmont Public Library.

Parent Perspective: The College Admissions Process – ZOOM Meeting
Jun 16 @ 8:00 pm – 9:00 pm


Tackling the college admissions and application process with your children can feel daunting, stressful, and anxiety-provoking. It can even be combative! Rest assured, you’re not alone.

Hear from a panel of Westchester County parents as they discuss how they navigated the process with their children and came out the other side with each of their children committing to highly selective colleges. Topics discussed include: what they wish they knew before they started, minimizing stress, biggest obstacles/what to look out for, where to compromise, timeline and deadlines, the “sweet spot” for supporting without overstepping, supporting their children’s ultimate choice, and reaching the finish line!

Meet Luis Quiros, the author of Justice Unplugged via Zoom
Jun 18 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Justice Unplugged is written impatiently from the margins, unearthing our endless narratives – pulling the plug on justice as it has come to be defined – and reclaiming its meaning.  Embedded into every fabric of society, taking some of our own to fight against us, the Non-Others use our language, knowledge, safety and even mother nature against our survival. For these reasons, I could never be a bystander-Others had to know history of resistance and thriving spirit, and come together amid the chaos. Justice Unplugged incites action through its interdisciplinary analysis and its application of bridging street smarts to scholarship.” – Luis Quiros
Luis Quiros, is also a community organizer, activist, and educator. Quiros pursues justice aimed at dismantling that which promotes solutions that inflict pain and trauma on Others – against models that departmentalized justice when it requires hybridity and holistic frameworks. Discourse on these topics is also captured on talk radio podcasts indexed on justice unplugged.
Mr. Quiros is also the author of An Other’s Mind (2011).

Nature Mandela Virtual Workshop – via ZOOM
Jul 16 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm


Register in advance for this meeting:

Creating a mandala (Sanskrit for “circle”) is thought to be a calming and centering experience–something we can all use during this pandemic.  The nature mandala class has the added benefit of spending time in nature, touching, smelling and collecting found natural objects, and then creating an artwork in a virtual, supportive community.

Instructions:  The mandalas will be created from materials found in nature.  Please collect these items responsibly and do not collect anything in nature preserves.  You may collect from your own garden and from other areas.  If you collect leaves from living plants, be careful to take only 1 leaf from each twig or branch.  Please be careful not to pick any poison ivy leaves.  (If you’re not sure what poison ivy looks like, check out various images on Google Image.)

Here are some suggestions for items to collect:  3 fresh flowers, 10 wilted flowers, 15 flower petals, 20 green leaves, 15 leaf buds, 20 pebbles, 10 sticks, 20 evergreen leaves or pine needles, etc.  On Monday, also have on hand a large, solid colored surface upon which to create your mandala, and a camera to photograph your mandala.  This will be a 45-minute workshop.

Gail Koller, ATR, CTRS is a registered art therapist and a certified nature educator.  She has been giving free nature mandala workshops as a way of giving back to the community.

And, nourishing not only our body, but also our mind and spirit is key to the health of our microbiome.

The topics covered will be:

 How the microbiome effects the body, mind, and spirit Why mental attitude & emotions affect the microbiome and the immune system

 Ways to keep the microbiome in balance

 How to nourish our bodies with proper diet and nutrition – seasonally

 Lifestyle habits that support a strong immune system and a healthy
