Election '16: Where Things Stand and PredictionsElection '16: Where Things Stand and Predictions
Tuesday, May 24, 3:30 - 5:00pm

So far, this year’s Presidential election has surprised most political observers and pundits, and may turn out to be one of the most unusual – and critical – elections in American history. Our guest speaker, Stephen Rolandi, will sort out the issues in this year’s election, and offer his opinion of the election’s  outcome, and what the 2016 election may portend for the future of politics in the United States.

Stephen Rolandi, retired last year after a career as a manager and executive with the State and City of New York. A self-described progressive Republican, he served in the administrations of New York City Mayors Michael Bloomberg and Rudy Giuliani and New York State Governors David Paterson and Andrew Cuomo. He currently teaches public administration, public policy and finance at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice of the City University of New York. He holds a Bachelor’s degree in political science and history from New York University, as well as a Master of Public Administration degree from NYU’s Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service. A native of Brooklyn, New York, Steve and his wife Pilar moved to Larchmont in 2003. This program is free and open to the community.

LOOKING AHEAD


"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
