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

Ileen Gottesfeld will discuss No Book but the World, a novel by Leah Hager Cohen. The book takes us through a twisty and resonant tale about the price of secrets, the burden of family, and 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.  We see decades later the results of that upbringing as Ava seeks the truth in a mystery involving her strange brother. It isn’t necessary to read the book ahead of time, but doing so may add to your 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


Out and About: The Met BreuerOut and About: The Met Breuer
Thursday, July 14, bus departs 10:00am

We are thrilled to offer this trip to the brand newly opened Met Breuer for a tour of the exhibit "Unfinished: Thoughts Left Visible." The show addresses the deceptively simple question of when a work of art is finished. The 197 pieces on view date from the Renaissance to the present, and are drawn from both the Met’s own collection and major national and international loans.  The Boston Globe wrote that the show is "as philosophically rich as it is aesthetically rewarding."  After our guided tour we will head to Island Restaurant on Madison Avenue for lunch.  The cost for the day (bus, lunch, and Museum tour) is $75.00 per person. Seats are very limited and must be paid in advance. Respond to the office immediately if you would like to attend. Financial assistance is available to members who qualify. Speak to Elaine in confidence. 899-3150.

Then Sally retired and began writing mystery novels. She was unable to get an agent or publisher for her first book, but she kept on writing. This year, just as she was celebrating her own 95th birthday, Sally published four mystery novels featuring British-born sleuth Emily Lewis.
