Author Talk: The Power of Presence by Joy Thomas Moore

Wednesday Sep 19, 2018, 7 p.m.

In Conversation with Joy Thomas Moore and Una McHugh, Q&A, Signing

In THE POWER OF PRESENCE, Moore explores seven pillars of presence--heart, faith, mind, courage, financial freedom, values, and connectedness--that all parents can use to positively influence their children. Using compelling stories from women who have been there and practical advice on everything from savings accounts to mindfulness, this book is a compassionate look at what it takes to raise great kids even in less than ideal circumstances.

"Piermont Reads" Talk presented by Library Trustee, Dr. Cara Stepanian

Sunday Sep 23, 2018, 2 p.m.

Thomas Berger’s 1980 novel Neighbors is a dark social commentary on suburban life, in which reality clashes with perception. Heralded as a suburban classic alongside such giants as Updike (Run Rabbit Run) and Yates (Revolutionary Road), this novel whose pages span just 24 hours, take its readers on a wild and warped ride. This talk will examine Berger’s life and his time in Piermont, while placing Neighbors in context of both time and place – evaluating its relevance today and its place in a modern canon of social reflection.
