Convivial Book Discussion Group
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

White Teeth, by Zadie Smith.   ''White Teeth begins as the story of an Englishman, Archie Jones, and his accidental friendship with Samad Iqbal, a Bengali Muslim from Bangladesh. The two men met in 1945 when they were part of a tank crew inching through Europe in the final days of World War II. They missed out on the action, and over the next three decades have continued to do much the same. Zadie Smith's debut novel is, like the London it portrays, a restless hybrid of voices, tones and textures. Hopscotching through several continents and 150 years of history.  Smith's real talent emerges not just in her voice but in her ear, which enables her to inhabit characters of different generations, races and mind-sets."  A comic tour-de-force not to be missed!  - Excerpts; NYTimes review by Anthony Quinn

The Convivial Book Discussion Group is an evening opportunity to gather and share some of the best fiction and non-fiction books recently published.  Titles are picked by member recommendations with opportunities to take turns leading the discussion in a light, jovial circle of friendly readers.  Copies available at check-out desk one month prior to the program date.  New participants please call Kate.

A Writer's Journey: From Heartbreak to Inspiration
7:00 PM - 8:30 PM

A Writer's Journey: From Heartbreak to Inspiration brings together local authors Linda Appleman Shapiro and Randye Kaye to discuss their writing, mental health issues within families, and the immigrant experience of dislocation and relocation. Their books show us the power of stories to bring empathy, education, and awareness to families and those dealing with mental health issues. 

Linda Appleman Shapiro's memoir She's Not Herself: A psychotherapist's journey into and beyond her mother's mental illness is the story of her childhood in Brighton Beach, Brooklyn, a community of Russian-Jewish immigrants. It traces the effects of multi-generational trauma in a family where, as in most families in the 1940s and 50s, physical and mental illnesses were never openly discussed.She tells the story of a young girl who had to navigate life with a mother who suffered from major depressive disorder. She's Not Herself was published by Dream of Things; since its release in 2014, She’s Not Herself has sold more than 8,000 copies. 

 

Ben Behind His Voices: One Family’s Journey from the Chaos of Schizophrenia to Hope is a page-turning narrative of one family’s challenging experience when their firstborn is gradually struck down by schizophrenia – and how they learned to love and support him throughout his eventual steps to recovery. Randye Kaye's memoir "reads like a riveting novel”  and will inspire and educate any family going through hard times with the mental illness of a loved one. “This well-written, well-researched, and brutally honest book will provide information, inspiration, and encouragement for many parents.” It also provides valuable insight for others who want to understand how families are affected when mental illness strikes.

 Title:  Sapiens: A Brief History of Human Kind,  by Yuval Noah Harari

From a renowned historian comes a groundbreaking narrative of humanity’s creation and evolution—a #1 international bestseller—that explores the ways in which biology and history have defined us and enhanced our understanding of what it means to be “human.”

One hundred thousand years ago, at least six different species of humans inhabited Earth. Yet today there is only one—homo sapiens. What happened to the others? And what may happen to us?

Archaeological Institute of America (AIA) Westchester Branch: The Archaeology Book Club is a monthly afternoon discussion group interested in reading material surrounding architecture, archeology and interesting anthropology books.  Lead by an outside group (AIA) of enthusiastic and loyal fans of past civilizations and places.  Members are responsible for obtaining copies of their book.  New members, please contact Myrna at: mwsilville@gmail.com  or call Kate for inquires.

Under the Enemy's Nose
2:00 PM - 3:00 PM

Mano Orel talks about his new memoir, Under the Enemy's Nose. As an 18 year old Greek Jew, Mr. Orel, using a false identity, became the interpreter for the German occupation forces in Thebes, all the while passing on information to the Greek resistance. Living in constant fear of being discovered, Mr. Orel's story of survival under Nazi occupation is one of ingenuity and struggle with fear. The book includes details about the participation of Jews in the Greek resistance and the civil war that followed.

Mr. Orel gives us a first hand account of working against the Nazi's right under their noses.  It is a fascinating and illuminating account of resistance against a tyrant and his forces.

Concert: Richard Boukas & Quarteto Moderno
2:00 AM - 3:30 PM

QUARTETO MODERNO is widely recognized as one of the most innovative contemporary Brazilian Jazz ensembles based in the U.S. Formed in 2008, the ensemble features Richard Boukas's compositions in Brazilian genres including samba, choro, baião, frevo, maracatu, marcha, frêvo, valsa and guarânia. Boukas synergizes these traditional forms with a rich melodic and harmonic vocabulary drawn from jazz and chamber music. The group's performances showcase a fiery, spontaneous interaction driven by daring improvisations and perpetual rhythmic explorations.

Featured on acoustic guitar and vocals, Boukas is joined by woodwind virtuoso Lucas Pino and itinerant Brazilian sidemen Gustavo Amarante (bass) and Maurício Zottarelli (drums). Quarteto Moderno has performed extensively in the New York City metro area, including Dizzy Gillespie Auditorium (Baha'i Center), Johnny Pacheco Latin Jazz Festival and Queens College's Year of Brazil.
