Jonas Dovydenas’ photos taken during his many excursions to Afghanistan will be on exhibit at The Lenox Library’s Welles Gallery, August 29-September 29.

lib_book01 7:00 PM People of Windsor Mountain School, Rick Goeld Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
    Contact:    637-2630   info@lenoxlib.org
   

Author Rick Goeld will discuss his non-fiction book, "People of Windsor Mountain," about the famed Lenox boarding school, at The Lenox Library on Thursday, September 25, at 7:00pm.

Windsor Mountain was a liberal progressive boarding school located on West Street in Lenox. The school was founded in Germany, where Jewish educators Max and Gertrud Bondy established a small school chartered with "Educating the Emotions." As the Nazis gained power, the school relocated, first to Switzerland and later to the United States. In 1944, the Bondy family purchased Groton Place, the former estate of Grenville L. Winthrop, and Lenox became Windsor's permanent home. The school thrived during the 1950s and 1960s, before economic conditions forced its closure in 1975.

In addition to the school's colorful history, “People of Windsor Mountain” contains the personal stories and remembrances of dozens of Windsor alumni and former faculty, including Czech freedom fighter Jan Wiener, and the children of Harry Belafonte, Sidney Poitier, and Dr. Max Jacobson—the infamous Dr. Feelgood.

Goeld graduated from Windsor in 1963, later attended MIT and Northeastern, and had a long career in the high-tech electronics industry.

A book signing will follow the talk.

The Lenox Library will host its fifth annual ScrabbleRouser, a three-round tournament playing the SCRABBLE ® Brand Crossword Game and other word games.  The games will begin at 2:00 on Sunday, November 9 at the library.  Teams of up to 4 players will play one other team at a time in 3-minute turns for 30 minutes, using the rules of the popular board game.  Teams can be made up of friends, family, or co-workers.  Open to players high school age up to senior citizens.  Check-in begins at 1:30.

Prizes will be awarded to the highest scoring team in two divisions - beginner/intermediate and advanced/expert.  The team with the overall highest score will win the “bragging rights” prize – a plaque with the team name – to be loaned to the winning team to display for ten months.  Additionally, prizes will be given to the team raising the most money by collecting pledges and to the winners of several side games.  Purchase a “cheat” if needed - $5 donation buys you help from an expert, a peek at the dictionary or a blank tile to play.  All for a good cause!  

The registration fee is $20 per player or $80 per team of 4.  To be a spectator during the event and "gawk, gaze and graze", the cost is a $5 donation.  Refreshments will be served.

To register, contact Jennifer Knopf, Fundraising Events Coordinator, at the library before October 20 at 637-2630 or jknopf@lenoxlib.org. Players will receive a player information packet including information about how to collect additional pledges.  Proceeds from the ScrabbleRouser will be used to support the library’s many services, collections, and programs.
