The Golden Age of Mysteries (Thu. 17 Oct, 2019 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm)

The Golden Age of Mystery is usually considered to include British authors of the 1920s and 1930s, although the style was written at least as early as 1911. Everyone has heard of Agatha Christie, but there were other excellent writers in that era.

Please join us on Thursday, October 17th from 2-3 PM to explore these writers. This talk, led by librarian Jo-Anne Weinberg, is an introduction to authors of the period, which include Patricia Wentworth, R. Austin Freedman, Gladys Mitchell and Ellery Queen just to name a few.
Refreshments will be served.

With construction underway at the Olmsted Road library, the session will be held at the Scarsdale Alternative School. 45 Wayside Lane.
Registration is required via telephone at 914-722-1302 or online at scarsdalelibrary.org.

Kate Stempel, Author of "Sprinkles" to Read at Bronx River Books (Thu. 17 Oct, 2019 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm)

SprinklesChildren’s book author Kate Stempel will do a reading from her new book Sprinkles at Bronx River Books at 37 Spencer Place in Scarsdale on Thursday October 17 from 5-6:30 pm. Cupcakes from The Snackery will be served. The book is targeted for kids ages 7-11 and parents and children are encouraged to attend this free event.

Sprinkles is a feel good story about a young girl who develops a friendship with an elderly neighbor through mini cupcakes and bonsai trees, expressing the importance of compassion and kindness.

Sky, a young baker extraordinaire, is selling her famous cupcakes to raise money for the local animal shelter where she found her beloved dog, Cocoa. Everyone is crazy about Sky’s cupcakes. Everyone, that is, except Mr. Conway. Can Sky and Cocoa help a lonely elderly man find a reason to smile again? Join Sky and Cocoa as they explore how the smallest gestures in life can have the greatest impact and how friendship comes in all shapes and sizes.

Mini cupcakes, mini trees, and mini moments combine to form the perfect recipe for life lessons as Sky and Cocoa learn about the power of friendship, responsibility, and what it means to give back to the community. SPRINKLES will delight girls and boys by teaching them to imagine, smile, and show compassion.
