May 22 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

With acclaimed author and Emmy winner, Allison Gilbert.

A literary salon embraces authors and celebrates the craft of writing. Authors read from and discuss their work in a community of readers who ask thoughtful and engaging questions. The goal is to foster conversation and promote the respectful exchange of ideas.

At this salon, we will gather to explore: strategies for finding resilience after loss; opportunities for building deeper and more joyful connections with our spouses, children, and parents; and pathways for strengthening our connections to generations past.

We’ll hear from the following authors:

KJ Dell’Antonia, former New York Times reporter and author of How to Be a Happier Parent: Raising a Family, Having a Life, and Loving (Almost) Every Minute

Kenyatta Berry, author of The Family Tree Toolkit: A Comprehensive Guide to Uncovering Your Ancestry and Researching Genealogy

Laura Fahrenthold, author of The Pink Steering Wheel Chronicles: A Love Story

Marvin Scott, Emmy Award-winning WPIX newscaster, and author of As I Saw It: a reporter’s intrepid journey

Marisa Bardach Ramel, author of The Goodbye Diaries: A Mother-Daughter Memoir

Moderator: Allison Gilbert

The conversation will be moderated by award-winning author and Aligned Center member, Allison Gilbert, author of numerous books including, Passed and Present: Keeping Memories of Loved Ones Alive. Books will be available for sale and signing by the authors.*

*The book table will be run by The Village Bookstore of Pleasantville, NY. Credit cards and cash accepted.
