Storytelling through Maps and ImagesStorytelling through Maps and Images
Tuesday, January 27, 3:30 - 5:00pm

We are happy to present one of our favorite speakers, geographer Tim Alexander, who will demonstrate that maps indeed are worth at least 1000 words - not only for getting from here to there - but for expanding our imagination.  We will explore the various uses of graphic displays to tell a variety of stories.  These will be followed by maps in advertising and other forms of persuasion.  And last, we will view artistic uses of maps in painting--together with nature's abstract palette too. This program is free and open to the public. Refreshments are served at 3:30; program begins at 4:00pm.

Where: Larchmont Avenue Church, Russell Hall, 60 Forest Park Avenue, Larchmont. To reach Russell Hall, use the Forest Park Avenue door of the church near Wendt Avenue.

"Finding Yia Yia: A Greek Tragedy"
Tuesday, February 10, 3:30 - 5:00pm

In 1935, 30 year old Greek immigrant and mother of two young children, Mary Derecas was brutally stabbed to death in her New York City apartment.  More than 75 years later, Mary's granddaughter Angela Derecas Taylor of New Rochelle set out to learn about the grandmother she never knew; locate the unmarked grave in a Potter's Field; and grapple with the shocking revelation of the murderer's identity.

Angela will join us to read from and discuss her forthcoming work, Finding Yia Yia: A Greek Tragedy, in which she shares the story of her attempts to untangle her family's secrets and honor the memory of her grandmother - often in the face of fierce resistance from her own father and aunt, the murder victim's children. This program is free and open to the public. Refreshments are served at 3:30; program begins at 4:00pm. 

Where: Larchmont Avenue Church, Russell Hall, 60 Forest Park Ave, Larchmont. To reach Russell Hall, use the Forest Park Avenue door of the church near Wendt Avenue.

The Afghan Solution - Lucy Morgan EdwardsThe Afghan Solution - Lucy Morgan Edwards
Tuesday, March 10, 3:30 - 5:00 pm

Lucy Morgan Edwards will join us to discuss her book, The Afghan Solution. Ms. Edwards has been involved with the Af-Pak region since 1999. She lived in Afghanistan at the height of the Taliban, working for the UN on urban development projects in Kandahar (and having to escape across the desert in a taxi when the USS Cole was bombed by al Qaeda). She was then an election monitor at the first Loya Jirga (in 2002) and later a freelance journalist with the Economist and Daily Telegraph. Currently a researcher in Politics and International Relations at Exeter University, she wrote 'The Afghan Solution' in order to illuminate to a western audience how the war could have been avoided, and to show how the decisions made by western policymakers (both the decisions and their effects were often witnessed first hand by the author) have led to the present situation.   

This program is free and open to the public. Refreshments are served at 3:30 pm, the program begins at 4:00.

Where: Where: Larchmont Avenue Church, Russell Hall, 60 Forest Park Avenue, Larchmont To reach Russell Hall, use the Forest Park Avenue door of the church near Wendt Avenue.


Out and About: The Klezmatics in concertOut and About: The Klezmatics in concert
Sunday, March 22, 3:00PM
Often called a “Jewish roots band,” The Klezmatics have been playing — and celebrating — the heritage of Eastern European Jewish music and Yiddish culture for more than 25 years. Although tradition is at the core of what they do, the Klezmatics have developed a unique musical hybrid, rooted in the klezmer genre but very much of the modern world. Not familiar with klezmer? No worries! Previous experience is not required in order to be transported by the Klezmatics to another place and time. After the matinee concert, we'll head back to Larchmont for dinner at a restaurant close to home.

Where: The Performing Arts Center, Purchase College, 735 Anderson Hill Road, Purchase, NY and dinner TBA.
