Book Discussion: The Stars Beneath Our Feet

stars beneath our feetNot Your Kid's Book Club for Adults - "The Stars Beneath Our Feet" by David Barclay Moore

Wednesday, March 18th at 1:00pm at Shaarei Tikvah

Please register ahead of time by emailing Sheela at sheela@sheelachari.com.

It’s Christmas Eve in Harlem, but twelve-year-old Lolly Rachpaul and his mom aren’t celebrating. They’re still reeling from his older brother’s death in a gang-related shooting just a few months earlier. Then Lolly’s mother’s girlfriend brings him a gift that will change everything: two enormous bags filled with Legos. Lolly’s always loved Legos, and he prides himself on following the kit instructions exactly. Now, faced with a pile of building blocks and no instructions, Lolly must find his own way forward. His path isn’t clear—and the pressure to join a “crew,” as his brother did, is always there. When Lolly and his friend are beaten up and robbed, joining a crew almost seems like the safe choice. But building a fantastical Lego city at the community center provides Lolly with an escape—and an unexpected bridge back to the world.

Parents, writers, educators, and children’s book enthusiasts welcome! Hosted by children’s author, Sheela Chari.

Postponed: The Brothers Mankiewicz with Sydney Ladensohn Stern

brothermankiewiczThis event has been postponed as the Scarsdale Woman's Club is closed.

The Brothers Mankiewicz with Sydney Ladensohn Stern


The night before she begins prime time appearances on Turner Classic Movies (TCM), former Scarsdale resident Sydney Ladensohn Stern will speak on March 26 at 7:30 PM at the Scarsdale Woman’s Club about THE BROTHERS MANKIEWICZ: Hope, Heartbreak, and Hollywood Classics, her dual biography of Herman (1897-1953) and Joseph L. Mankiewicz (1909-1993.) With Orson Welles, Herman wrote Citizen Kane and shared its only Academy Award. Joe earned the second pair of his four Oscars for writing and directing All About Eve, which also won Best Picture. The Brothers Mankiewicz examines the brilliantly successful but deeply dissatisfied brothers through their lives and loves, triumphs and disappointments. From the antics of the Marx Brothers through the star-crossed making of Cleopatra, their story is also the story of Hollywood, from silent to talkies to the studio system’s ultimate demise.

Sydney Stern will appear on Turner Classic Movies (TCM) on March 27-29 for its Mankiewicz Family Weekend, which will feature three nights of primetime Mankiewicz films. The freelance writer and former Scarsdale Inquirer editor and columnist (“Suburban Exposure”) is also the author of Gloria Steinem: Her Passions, Politics, and Mystique, and Toyland: The High-Stakes Game of the Toy Industry. Bronx River Books will have books for sale and signing.
