LOOKING AHEAD TO 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.

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. We have a limited number of tickets. If you would like to attend, please call the office right away to let us know: 914/899-3150.
