Not Your Kids Book Club for Adults To Discuss "Akata Witch" (-)

Not Your Kids Book Club for Adults, the monthly session for adults interested in what young adults are reading, will discuss Akata Witch" by Nnedi Okorafor on Wednesday, Feb. 14, at 1 p.m., at the Scarsdale Public Library.

The novel is the story of a twelve-year-old American Albino living in Nigeria who is a terrific athlete but can't play soccer in the sun. There seems to be no place where she fits in. However, she discovers something amazing—she is a "free agent" with latent magical power. Soon she's part of a quartet of magic students, studying the visible and invisible, learning to change reality as they are asked to catch a career criminal who also knows magic.

Not Your Kids Book Club for Adults is led by Scarsdale resident Sheela Chari, whose debut children's novel, VANISHED, was a 2012 APALA Children's Literature honor book, an Edgar Award nominee for best juvenile mystery and was featured on the Today show with Al's Book Club for Kids.

To register and reserve a copy of the book go to the library website, or call the Reference Desk at (914) 722-1302.

The group will meet again on March 14 to discuss "Jane Unlimited" by Kristen Cashore.

Complimentary Tasting at Zachys: Wines for all Weathers (Sat. 17 Feb, 2018 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm)

NothingCanStopZachys 500x5001Near 60-degree days, frigid nights, sunshine, rain, sleet, snow - and that's only the forecast through Sunday!

With that many changes in weather over the next few days, how can you possibly decide what to drink? Join us Saturday, February 17th from 12 to 4pm, and let us help you make sense of this ludicrous forecast. For the warmth and the sun, we have Saint Clair's Origin New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, which, in our opinion, is one of the most interesting New Zealand wines we have tasted lately. Though it still has the typical tropical fruit and gooseberry notes, this wine is beautifully balanced by minerality and salinity that also add an unexpected complexity for the region.

For those moderate days, we will be featuring the wonderful Talbott Logan Vineyard Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, which both over-produce for their value and pair brilliantly with almost any dish you throw at them.

Lastly, for the foggiest, slushiest and snowiest of days, we will have the Scotches from Isle of Jura. On this tiny Scottish Isle, where the deer outnumber the people nearly 25 to 1, there is only one distillery and they have been crafting some of the most complex, diverse, price-driven scotches available in the market. Unlike other regions in Scotland, the Isle of Jura does not adhere to a single style but embraces a variety of peated and unpeated Scotches that are perfect for any palate.
