THE EAST MEADOW PUBLIC LIBRARY ADULT SUMMER READING CLUB RETURNS – BE A PART OF THIS FABULOUS PROGRAM!

IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SIGN UP FOR OUR ADULT SUMMER READING CLUB, PLEASE CLICK ON THIS LINK.

Each of us has a story. We were born somewhere, raised by someone, and live some place. But through the magic of literature we can be whoever we want to be, be wherever we want to be, and do whatever we want to do. Especially in this time of limitations, we can celebrate a world with no limitations at all. This year, as you IMAGINE YOUR STORY, stretch your boundaries! Be Jo of Little Women or The Scarlet Pimpernal, or a unicorn with a rainbow horn. Live in pre-colonial India or eighteenth century France, or a dystopian America. Explore life on other worlds or ride horseback with the Pony Express. Let books expand your horizons as we imagine our stories together.

Our Summer Reading Club will once again only be online as we wait for our new library to be reconstructed. I hope that you will join with the Reader Services staff as we zoom our programs and lead you to Your Next Read!

CANCELLED - March 18 @ 7 pm - Meet the Author: Claire Lombardo

The author visit scheduled for Wednesday night March 18th has been cancelled. We will reschedule our visit with Claire Lombardo at a later time. Thank you for your understanding.



Meet Claire Lombardo, The New York Times bestselling author of The Most Fun We Ever Had, as she discusses her multi-generational novel in which the four adult daughters of a Chicago couple – still madly in love after forty years – recklessly ignite old rivalries until a long-buried secret threatens to shatter the lives they’ve built. Set against the quintessential American backdrop of Chicago and its prospering suburbs, the book explores the triumphs and burdens of love and the fraught tethers of parenthood and sisterhood.

The Most Fun We Ever Had is currently being adapted for an HBO series to be produced by Laura Dern and Amy Adams, and written by Lombardo.

Copies will be available at the library. There will also be books available for purchase and signing at the end of the program.

This event will be held at SAMANEA (The Former Source Mall) Art Gallery on the 2nd Floor, 1504 Old Country Road, Westbury, NY 11590

For more information, please call the Reader Services Department at 516-794-2570 ext. 236.

February 4 @ 7:30 pm - Book Discussion Roundtable

Book Discussion Roundtable: You Can Do This! – February 4 at 7:30 p.m.

Do the words “it’s your turn to lead the book discussion” fill you with dread instead of delight? Join us as we talk about some ways to boost your confidence and make leading a book discussion easier for you to do. While all leaders have their own style, we will offer some tips and tricks to get your book group talking. We would love it if you would bring a book that you have successfully (or unsuccessfully) discussed to the roundtable, and share your experience.

Location: East Meadow Jewish Center, 1400 Prospect Ave., East Meadow, NY 11554

For more information, please call the Reader Services Department at 516-794-2570 ext. 236.
