New York Times best-selling author, Christina Baker Kline, presents Orphan Train

Thursday May 1, 2014, 7 p.m. 8:30 p.m.

Where: The Manse Barn, 32 Old Tappan Road, Tappan, NY

Admission is free, simply register at: tinyurl.com/cbkevent

Christina Baker Kline will talk about her most recent book, The Orphan Train, and present a slideshow of photos and other materials from orphan train riders. The story interweaves the lives of two women - a contemporary teenager enmeshed in the foster care system and an elderly woman who was abandoned as a girl and put on a train bound for the Midwest. The two form an unlikely bond and together embark on the process of self-discovery. This program is sponsored by the five libraries of South Orangetown (Blauvelt, Orangeburg, Palisades, Piermont, Tappan) and is free and open to the public. Please register online.
