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.

About the AuthorStempel

Fire Fair at Crossway (Sat. 19 Oct, 2019 10:00 am - 2:00 pm)

firefairA "Fire Fair" at Station 3 (56 Crossway) is planned for Saturday, October 19, 2019 to promote Fire Prevention Month. It will be held from 10 A.M. to 2 P.M., rain or shine.

It will be a full Fire Department effort, with participation from all three volunteer companies, explorers, as well as the career staff.

The fair will include a "Smoke Trailer" – a simulated house with a smoke machine for kids to crawl through; apparatus demonstrations; Hourly FIRE DEMONSTRATIONS; extinguisher demos; fire prevention videos; fire safety checklist completion prizes; literature and food. Other "hands on" activities for children are also planned.

The school program will take place prior to the fair. On Friday, October 18, 2019, we will visit the first grades in all of the elementary schools in the village. We will show a safety video and discuss fire prevention. We will also be handing out flyers to children of all ages to bring back home reminding the families about the fair.
This year’s theme for Fire Prevention Week “Not Every Hero Wears a Cape. Plan and Practice Your Escape!” works to educate everyone about the small but important actions they can take to keep themselves and those around them safe.

Fire safety equipment such as fire extinguishers, smoke detectors, carbon monoxide detectors, and fire escape ladders will be on sale. New this year, you can bring your home fire extinguishers to the Fair and get a free inspection. Although the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) designates October as "Fire Prevention Month", we know that emergency preparedness has to be ongoing all year round. Stay safe!

St. James the Less Graveyard Tour and Halloween Party (Sun. 27 Oct, 2019 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm)

StJamesThe ghosts will haunt the graveyard at the Church of St. James the Less on Sunday evening, October 27th , beginning at 6:00pm.

However, Mother Astrid Storm, rector of St. James, assures everyone there is no reason to be afraid – these are historic spirits not horrifying ghosts. Buried in the cemetery at St. James the Less, the only graveyard in the Village of Scarsdale, are a number of historic figures, including Major William Popham, who was a friend of George Washington's, and John “Scarsdale Jack” Van Kuren Newkirk, a Scarsdale High School alumnus, fighter pilot and World War II hero, who was killed in action against the Japanese.

Another somber and historic feature of the graveyard is the burial site of slaves who attempted to find freedom in Canada via the Underground Railroad but died en route. Since it was a crime to assist escaping slaves, the church buried these African Americans without formal headstones instead using a loose grouping of rocks to mark the spot where these brave people were interred.

While tours of the graveyard are ongoing, there will also be a Halloween party for children inside the church, complete with a haunted house run by the Senior Youth Group of St. James the Less. The Halloween party and haunted house are a longstanding and popular tradition at the church.

Behind Closed Doors: Raising Awareness About Domestic Violence (Tue. 29 Oct, 2019 9:30 am - 10:30 am)

The reality of domestic violence is that it can sometimes be lethal, even in Scarsdale. Less than four years ago, Dr. Robin Goldman was stabbed fatally by her husband as she prepared to divorce him. A Poughkeepsie woman was found murdered by the Bear Mountain Bridge this past weekend. She filed for divorce only three weeks ago. Separation is known to be the most dangerous time for a victim of domestic violence.

While it’s impossible to know what goes on in other people’s homes, learning to identify the risk factors that are correlated with domestic lethality, just may save a life. One in 4 women and 1 in 9 men experience severe intimate partner physical violence, intimate partner contact, sexual violence, and/or intimate partner stalking, with impacts such as injury, fearfulness, post-traumatic stress disorder, use of victim services, and the contracting of a sexually transmitted diseases. While not all domestic violence results in serious injury or death, domestic victimization is correlated with higher rates of depression and suicidal behavior.

The Safe Coalition: Children, Families, Community will be hosting a presentation titled “Behind Closed Doors” in an effort to raise awareness about the risk factors of lethality and to provide resources for those that might be in a potentially perilous situation. The program will be facilitated by Darlene Reda, Esq, Program Administrator for the Westchester County Office for Women. Ms. Reda will discuss the Five S’s, separation being one of them, as part of a countywide initiative to implement a lethality screening program and risk assessment protocol.

October is Domestic Violence Awareness month and accordingly the program will be held on October 29th at 9:30 am in the I-Lab of Scarsdale High School. I hope you will consider attending this free and informative presentation. For more information, please contact Safe Coalition Coordinator, Lauren Pomerantz, LCSW at lpomerantz@sfcsinc.org or 721-2468.
