Lunch 'n Books: The Library Book by Susan Orlean

The Library Book by Susan Orlean 
Moderator: Mike Turner
Monday, March 18 at 1 p.m. 

On the mrning of April 29, 1986, a fire alarm sounded in the Los Angeles Public Library. The fire was disastrous; it reached 2,000 degrees and burned for more than seven hours. By the time it was extinguished, it had consumed four hundred thousand books and damaged seven hundred thousand more. Investigators descended on the scene, but more than thirty years later, the mystery remains. Did someone purposefully set fire to the library—and if so, who?  Weaving her lifelong love of books and reading, into an investigation of the fire, award-winning New Yorker reporter and New York Times bestselling author Susan Orlean delivers a mesmerizing and uniquely compelling book that manages to tell the broader story of libraries and librarians in a way that has never been done.

Female Persuasion by Meg Wolitzer 
Moderator: Jane Shapiro 
Thursday, April 4 at 1 p.m.

Charming and wise, knowing and witty, Meg Wolitzer delivers a novel about power and influence, ego and loyalty, womanhood and ambition. At its heart, The Female Persuasion is about the flame we all believe is flickering inside of us, waiting to be seen and fanned by the right person at the right time. It’s a story about the people who guide and the people who follow (and how those roles evolve over time), and the desire within all of us to be pulled into the light.

Stepping On: Building Confidence & Reducing Falls Presented by NUMC

Stepping On is a program from Nassau University Medical Center that empowers older adults to carry out health behaviors that reduce the risks of falls.

In a small-group setting, older adults learn balance exercises and develop specific knowledge and skills to prevent falls. Older adults who should attend are those who: a) are at risk of falling; b) have a fear of falling; or c) who have fallen one or more times. Workshops are facilitated by trained leaders who work with adults.

 

The classes are approximately 1-1/2 -2 hours long, and will meet once a week for seven weeks. The dates of this program will be:
