"Primary Lessons" - Growing up in the Segregated South
Tuesday, September 16, 3:30pm - 5:00pm

As a precocious five year old, Sarah Bracey White was ripped from her middle-class home in Philadelphia and transplanted to a troubled, single-parent household in segregated South Carolina. She refused to accept the system that  tried to confine her—a system her mother accepted as the southern way of life. Ms. White will join us to discuss the experiences she chronicled in her candid and absorbing memoir Primary Lessons.

“Outraged by all the things I couldn’t do in South Carolina because of the color of my skin, I rebelled against my mother’s efforts to rein in my outspoken nature and instill in me the southern virtues of respectability, keeping family secrets, and acceptance of fate.”

Sarah Bracey White is a librarian, teacher, arts consultant, motivational speaker and the author of a poetry collection, Feelings Brought to Surface. A section from the memoir was staged by the Hudson Valley Writers Center. The New York Times, The Baltimore Afro-American Newspapers, The Scarsdale Inquirer and The Journal News  have published many of her essays. Her award-winning folk tale “Wanderlust” was published on the web by WomenWriters.net. She was a 2010-2011 Inaugural Fellow at the Purchase College Writers Center.

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

COMING UP IN OCTOBER...


One Book - One Mamaroneck: Our Community ReadsOne Book - One Mamaroneck: Our Community Reads
Read now for our discussion on October 21

For the first time, the public libraries in Larchmont and Mamaroneck are bringing our entire community together by reading. They have selected I am Malala by Malala Yousafzai for this community-wide event. At Home on the Sound members are invited to read I am Malala now in preparation for a discussion of the book on Tuesday, October 21 at 2:00pm. The group will be led by Mamaroneck librarian Lori Friedl. 

Books are available at the Mamaroneck and Larchmont libraries as well as Anderson’s Book Shop on Chatsworth Avenue in Larchmont.

About the Book: When the Taliban took control of the Swat Valley in Pakistan, one girl spoke out. Malala Yousafzai refused to be silenced and fought for her right to an education. In 2012, when she was fifteen, she was shot in the head at point-blank range while riding the bus home from school, and few expected her to survive. I Am Malala is the remarkable tale of a family uprooted by global terrorism, of the fight for girls’ education, of a father who championed and encouraged his daughter to write and attend school, and of brave parents who have a fierce love for their daughter in a society that prizes sons.

Mike will discuss the art of film.  Through a series of film clips and commentary, Mike will give viewers a greater understanding of how to watch a movie. We will  learn to appreciate the many decisions a director makes with regard to types of shots, camera angles, editing techniques, and use of music in order to convey theme and character.  Michael DiGennaro, Ph.D., is a former Mamaroneck High School English teacher and film scholar and instructor.

Wednesday, October 29, 12:00 noon departure for 2:00pm curtain

We are excited to announce the next destination in our "Out and About" program: a matinee performance of the Broadway musical comedy, "A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder."  The show, which won four 2014 Tony Awards including Best Musical, stars the incomparable Jefferson Mays. In the New York Times Charles Isherwood wrote, "Mr. Mays sings, dances, ice-skates, bicycles and generally romps through some eight roles — flipping among personas male, female and somewhere in between — at a pace that sets your head spinning."

$125 per person covers ticket and round trip bus transportation from the At Home on the Sound parking lot. Bring a snack for the bus. This trip is now sold out; call the office if you would like to add your name to the waiting list: 94/899-3150.

At Home on the Sound strives to keep every program affordable for all of our members. Please note that consideration for a reduced ticket price is available. Contact director Elaine Weingarten at 899-3150 to discuss in strictest confidence.

Some of the expense of this trip is being offset by a generous contribution from Morris and Florence Bender Foundation, Inc.
