"No Book but the World" a discussion with Ileen Gottesfeld
Tuesday, July 12, 3:30 - 5:00pm

No Book but the World by Leah Hager Cohen takes us through a twisty and resonant tale about the price of secrets, the burden of family, the remnants of childhood we need to leave behind.  The Rousseauian title of this gripping story refers to the type of progressive education lacking discipline,structure, and supervision that two siblings, Ava and Fred, experience at their parents' experimental school.  The revolutionary way of child rearing stresses nature as a guide, and we see decades later, the results of that upbringing as Ava seeks the truth in a mystery involving her strange brother. Read the book ahead of time for an added appreciation of this presentation.  Ileen Gottesfeld is a former high school  English teacher, lecturer, James Joyce scholar and a lover of literature. This program is free and open to the community. Refreshments are served at 3:30, the lecture begins at 4:00pm.

Where: Larchmont Avenue Church, Russell Hall, 60 Forest Park Avenue, Larchmont
