Pull up a chair and discuss great literature with your neighbors.
March 2017 selection: Barbarian Days: A Surfing Life by William Finnegan
Barbarian Days is William Finnegan's memoir of an obsession, a complex enchantment. Surfing only looks like a sport. To initiates, it is something else: a beautiful addiction, a demanding course of study, a morally dangerous pastime, a way of life.

LTS Poetry Workshop
Greenburgh Public Library, Thursday, March 2 at 1:30pm
The Brenda Connor-Bey Learning to See™ Legacy Workshop Series focuses on writing poems about art, and exploring all creative writing, as well as other ways to "see" poetry through the "ekphrastic" style. (Ekphrasis = "Description" in Greek. An ekphrastic poem is a vivid description of a scene or, more commonly, a work of art.)
Students enroll for three-session workshops of two hours each. Partially funded by Poets&Writers, the Friends of Greenburgh Library, and Greenburgh Arts & Culture, workshops are free and open to the public. Beginners as well as established poets are welcomed. Participants are strongly encouraged to attend all three sessions. After registration limit is reached, a Wait List will be formed and students contacted as spaces become available. Teacher: Karen Rippstein
