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

    Each session ends with a guided meditation.

    The book club will be discussing Frankenstein, by Mary Shelley.

    Are you interested in reading and discussing novels, plays, and poems by women? Then this is your Book Club! This is a fun opportunity to indulge in some great works by women writers.

    We will begin each discussion with a little background history and tidbits on each female writer. I’ll ask a few questions to get us started and then it’s an open forum. My hope is that together we gain a little more insight into these books (and perhaps the authors as well).

    Some of these books you may know well. Some may be books you always meant to read and never got around to! It does not matter how expert you are with the works or the authors. If you are passionate about discussing books and would like to build up your repertoire of works by women, this might be the perfect place to start. To quote Mary Shelley: “The beginning is always today.”

    September: Alice Walker “The Color Purple” 1983
    October: Mary Shelley “Frankenstein” 1818
    November: Amy Tan “The Joy Luck Club” 1989

    Do spirits still stalk the Hudson River Valley? In Hauntings of the Hudson River Valley, Vin Dacquino works determinedly to discover the true story behind three enigmatic folk legends: Sybil Ludington, Chief Daniel Nimham and George Denny. Each was the central figure in a dramatic series of events; each became enshrined in local lore for their actions; each has had his/her story obscured; and each may have left behind a spiritual residue. Follow Dacquino as he interviews local experts, explores areas where hauntings may have occurred such as Carmel's legendary Smalley's Inn and digs deep into historical archives to open new windows into the lives and possible afterlives of these three mysterious characters. The truth is out there, hidden in remote, tucked-away corners of the valley...are you ready to uncover it? 

    About our presenter: Vincent T. Dacquino is the author of several books for children and adults. He has made numerous appearances at schools and historical sites based on his adult biography Sybil Ludington: The Call to Arms and Hauntings of the Hudson River Valley: An Investigative Journey. Dacquino has addressed teachers and historians at annual conferences at the local, county, state and national level. He has presented at the BOCES Young Adult conferences for over thirty years and has conducted a writers' workshop for the Mahopac Library for over twenty years. Dacquino was a teacher in Westchester County and retired in 2007 to dedicate more time to his writing and family. He resides with his wife, June, in Mahopac, New York.
