lib_book_red 7:00 PM  -  8:00 PM Mother Daughter Book Discussions facilitated by librarian Barbara Buckley Remind Me about this Event Download Event Info Tell a Friend
   

Has there ever been a more precious, yet complex relationship than that of a mother and a daughter?  Whether the journey has been perfect or fraught with stress, the best way to understand this emotional minefield is through literature.

We will explore this intimate kinship in a reading group series.  Beginning on Wednesday, July 19, the group will enjoy the film “Postcards from the Edge,” based on the autobiography of Carrie Fisher and her love/hate relationship with her mother, Debbie Reynolds.

The week following, on Wednesday, July 26, discuss The Mare by Mary Gaitskill.  This novel probes the existential question—what is a mother?

Elizabeth Strout’s slim but substantive novel, My Name is Lucy Barton will be discussed on Wednesday, August 9.  It plunges right into the estranged relationship of Elizabeth and her mother, a woman she has not seen in years.

To end the series on Wednesday, August 30, the group will explore the wonderful Amy Tan’s book The Valley of Amazement.  From The Joy Luck Club to The Kitchen God’s Wife, Tan is at the epicenter studying the phenomenally complicated mother-daughter love affair.

Register online (on the July 19 form) or by calling the Reference Dept. at 466-8055, ext. 218/219.

Please call early if you’d like us to interloan any or all titles in the series. It takes 1-2 weeks for interloan books to arrive at the library, as well as your time for reading!!

lib_book01 7:00 PM  -  8:00 PM Mother Daughter Book Discussions facilitated by librarian Barbara Buckley Remind Me about this Event Download Event Info Tell a Friend
   

Has there ever been a more precious, yet complex relationship than that of a mother and a daughter?  Whether the journey has been perfect or fraught with stress, the best way to understand this emotional minefield is through literature.

We will explore this intimate kinship in a reading group series.  Beginning on Wednesday, July 19, the group will enjoy the film “Postcards from the Edge,” based on the autobiography of Carrie Fisher and her love/hate relationship with her mother, Debbie Reynolds.

The week following, on Wednesday, July 26, discuss The Mare by Mary Gaitskill.  This novel probes the existential question—what is a mother?

Elizabeth Strout’s slim but substantive novel, My Name is Lucy Barton will be discussed on Wednesday, August 9.  It plunges right into the estranged relationship of Elizabeth and her mother, a woman she has not seen in years.

To end the series on Wednesday, August 30, the group will explore the wonderful Amy Tan’s book The Valley of Amazement.  From The Joy Luck Club to The Kitchen God’s Wife, Tan is at the epicenter studying the phenomenally complicated mother-daughter love affair.

Register online (on the July 19 form) or by calling the Reference Dept. at 466-8055, ext. 218/219.

Please call early if you’d like us to interloan any or all titles in the series. It takes 1-2 weeks for interloan books to arrive at the library, as well as your time for reading!!

Presented by Maria Carney, MD and Adam Kahn

The Gitenstein Institute for Health Law and Policy and Northwell Health

The mission of the Conversations: Health and Treatments CHAT project is to empower adults of all ages— those who are healthy and those who are not— with information about advance care planning, allowing for more open communication with their families and clinicians about patient-centered medical decision-making for themselves and their loved ones should they be faced with a serious, life threatening or end-of-life situation.

For many people, advance care planning can be a scary and confusing process; however, advance directives (including health care proxies, living wills and DNRs) are powerful tools that can help demystify an emotionally charged planning process. An informed patient is an engaged patient, and by providing free, confidential legal counseling, the CHAT project seeks to (1) help people complete critical advance care planning documentation and (2) prepare these individuals for important discussions with their loved ones and clinicians through the use of these documents.

The CHAT project is a partnership between the Gitenstein Institute for Health Law and Policy at the Maurice A. Deane School of Law at Hofstra University and Northwell Health, and communities in the New York metropolitan area.  chat@hofstra.edu                                  thechatproject.org                                            516-463-7015
