Wednesday, September 26, 2:00pm

This work of non-fiction by Kate Moore is so fast-paced and vivid that it reads like a novel.  The book chronicles the lives of female factory workers in the early 20th century who painted numerals on watch faces using radium paint - not knowing of its radioactive toxicity. The resulting horrific radiation poisoning the women suffered, and their attempts to hold their knowing employers accountable, created an enormous scandal and was a groundbreaking battle for workers' rights. The book is available at the library. Read now so you can participate in the discussion which is led by Librarian Lori Friedli.

Where: Mamaroneck Library Community Room,136 Prospect Avenue, Mamaronec

Dance for Parkinson’s was launched in June 2011 and replicates the Mark Morris Dance Company’s award-winning Dance for PD® program.  Dance instructors at The Rye Arts Center are specially-trained through The Mark Morris Dance Company in Brooklyn.  Feedback and attendance from this class has shown that people no longer feel classified as patients, but as dance students and are empowered to take charge of their own well-being.
