    COME TOGETHER PAWLING: Viewing of TED TALK video on The Power of Vulnerability and discussion / Online Program

    7:00 PM-8:00 PM
    Dec/Mon/2021

    Monday, December 6
    7-8 pm

    Registration is required. You can register below or by contacting Donald, our Adult Program Coordinator, at adult@pawlinglibrary.org. 

    Each month, in a respectful and open environment, we’ll explore a new topic led by a different community leader.

    At the start of the program, we’ll be watching a 20-minute TED TALKS video, entitled The Power of Vulnerability, with Dr. Brené Brown.

    Following the viewing, we’ll open up a group discussion led by Jackie Muller.

    Our wellness as individuals and as a community depends on continued sharing, support and conversation in times of celebration as well as in times of conflict.

    Come Together and join us in fostering deeper conversations, listening to disparate experiences and points of view in the realm of challenging context such as racism, sexism, bipartisanship, whiteness and social justice.

    We understand that these conversations could be difficult to have, and believe that by coming together to find the willingness to listen and learn, we can aspire to create a stronger Pawling, where ALL community members feel safe, welcome and represented.

    This program is being provided through a partnership with the Pawling Library and Pawling Yoga & Wellness. https://pawlingyogawellness.org

    Please join us for a stress relieving hour of gentle exercise and relaxation.

    We have selected four classic novels, one for each season, that were popular in the 1920s when our library first came into being. 

    Our presenter, Stephanie Rogers, will be reading an excerpt  from each novel and then lead a Q & A for our audience. Stephanie Rogers is the author of The Horse I Belong To: How a Misused and Almost Forgotten Grade Mare Showed Me the Way. 

    The Pawling Library is proud to be partnering with our neighbors Pawling Recreation, the Grand: Rehabilitation & Nursing, the Pawling Resource Center & the Book Cove.

    To participate in this program, order a copy of The Mysterious Affair at Styles through our library. You can also support our partner, the Book Cove, by purchasing this classic novel from our favorite book store. The Mysterious Affair at Styles was written by Agatha Christie and published in 1920.
