Town and Gown Literary Discussion Group via ZOOM (Registration)

Wednesday, May 26

For the month of May, we will be reading “My Brother” by Jamaica Kincaid. Borrow it from the Westchester Library System.

Jamaica Kincaid’s brother Devon Drew died of AIDS on January 19, 1996, at the age of thirty-three. Kincaid’s incantatory, poetic, and often shockingly frank recounting of her brother’s life and death is also a story of her family on the island of Antigua, a constellation centered on the powerful, sometimes threatening figure of the writer’s mother. My Brother is an unblinking record of a life that ended too early, and it speaks volumes about the difficult truths at the heart of all families.

Pride Month Book Discussion via ZOOM (Registration)

Wednesday, June 9

7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

The Dobbs Ferry and Scarsdale Public Libraries are proud to present authors Alysia Constantine and Julian Winters

Julian Winters is the award-winning author of Running With Lions—which won an IBPA Benjamin Franklin Gold Award for Best Teen Fiction—as well as How To Be Remy Cameron and The Summer of Everything. A self-proclaimed comic book geek, Julian lives in Decatur, Georgia, where he can be found watching the only two sports he can follow: volleyball and soccer. His next book, Right Where I Left You, will be released by Viking Children’s/Penguin Randomhouse in Spring 2022. Visit him online at julianwinters.com.

Alysia Constantine is a writer. She lives in New York with her wife, two dogs and a cat. She is the author of Sweet (February 2016), Olympia Knife (November 2017) and Luckmonkey (March 2021), and is the editor of Short Stuff (June 2020), all from Interlude Press. In another life, Alysia was a professor of humanities and media studies at an art college. In an earlier life, she was a professor of other stuff in other places. In a life before that, she was a baker/cook. In a life even before that, she was a miserable queer teen studying to be a concert violinist, and before that, she was Joan of Arc (though there’s no evidence for that).  Visit her at alysiaconstantine.com.
