Rose Weekend at Lyndhurst (Sat. 8 Jun, 2024 10:00 am - 3:00 pm)

roseweekendNature lovers, gardeners, and those looking for family fun will definitely want to stop and smell the roses during Rose Weekend 2024 at Lyndhurst.

The event, which happens Saturday, June 8th and Sunday, June 9th from 10 AM-3 PM, has everything from gorgeous gardens to puppet shows, potting workshops, horticultural walk-and-talks, a popup café, and more, and is sure to appeal to all ages.

Following on the heels of the wildly successful flower-filled Lyndhurst in Bloom event in April, Rose Weekend is filled with a bounty of offerings that go way beyond just roses. Rose Weekend attendees will be able to enjoy the sights and smells of hundreds of roses (and can even purchase a rare “Helen Gould Rose” to take home as a souvenir), attend potting workshops, see puppet shows, listen to a rosarian talk with Peter Winne, participate in a rose bouquet demo, and take part in a garden book talk. Gardening professionals (from Seeds of Design, Ardsley Pollinator Pathway, Seed on Hudson, and Hudson Compost) will be on site to answer questions, and walk-and-talks will explore different trees and plants with expert guidance. All these activities are included in the price of admission.

On Saturday, a popup café will be selling lunch and snacks, and Penny Lick Ice Cream Company will have ice cream for sale. On Sunday, in addition to lunch, snacks, and ice cream, mocktails will be available from Apero Vespa.

Lyndhurst’s fabled rose garden was first developed in the early 1900s when Helen Gould (a philanthropist and member of New York City’s wealthy Gould family) was at Lyndhurst. During World War II, the garden was neglected, but in the 1960s, the Garden Club of Irvington began to restore the rose garden.

Now, the Lyndhurst Rose Garden contains approximately 500 roses. Old garden and shrub roses include Bourbon, damask, hybrid foetida, hybrid musk, hybrid perpetual, rugosa, moss, and pimpinellifolia. Modern roses in the garden include hybrid tea, floribunda, polyantha, grandiflora, modern shrubs, ramblers, and climbers. The garden includes “single” roses with 4-7 petals, “semi-double” roses with 8-14 petals, and “very double” roses which may have as many as 40 petals.

Helen Gould roses will be for sale in the Welcome Center Courtyard. The “Helen Gould” rose, described as “watermelon” colored and popular in its time, was later renamed “Red Maman Cochet.” Of the five Maman Cochet sister roses (pink, yellow, crimson, white, and red) only the white and pink varieties exist today. During her time at Lyndhurst, Helen Gould’s rose garden was full of pink rose blooms. Bring home this unique souvenir of Lyndhurst’s horticultural past.

This year, the event is back in-person for the first time since 2019 after being held virtually in the wake of COVID-19.

The need is more urgent than ever as our 2024 Poverty Tracker finds that 2 million New Yorkers are experiencing poverty, including 1 in 4 children.

Nicholas Kristof at the Scarsdale Forum (Sun. 9 Jun, 2024 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm)

c. David Hume KennerlyNicholas D. Kristof: New York Times columnist, Pulitzer Prize winner, and best-selling author

Sunday, June 9, 3:00-5:00pm
Scarsdale Public Library

Nicholas D. Kristof is an op-ed columnist for The New York Times, where he was previously bureau chief in Hong Kong, Beijing, and Tokyo. He is the coauthor, with his wife, Sheryl WuDunn, of five previous books: Tightrope, A Path Appears, Half the Sky, Thunder from the East, and China Wakes. He was awarded two Pulitzer Prizes, one with WuDunn in 1990 for their coverage of China, and the second in 2006 for his columns on Darfur.

Since 1984, Nicholas Kristof has worked almost continuously for The New York Times as a reporter, foreign correspondent, bureau chief, and now columnist, becoming one of the foremost reporters of his generation. In his latest book, Chasing Hope, Kristof recounts his event-filled path from a small-town farm in Oregon to every corner of the world.

Reporting from Hong Kong, Beijing, and Tokyo, while traveling far afield to India, Africa, and Europe, Kristof witnessed and wrote about century-defining events: the Tiananmen Square protests and massacre, the Yemeni civil war, the Darfur genocide in Sudan, and the wave of addiction and despair that swept through his hometown and a broad swath of working-class America. Fully aware that coverage of atrocities generates considerably fewer page views than the coverage of politics, he nevertheless continued to weaponize his pen against regimes and groups violating basic human rights, raising the cost of oppression and torture. Some of the risks he took while doing so make for hair-raising reading.

Kristof writes about some of the great members of his profession and introduces us to extraordinary people he has met, such as the dissident whom he helped escape from China and a Catholic nun who browbeat a warlord into releasing schoolgirls he had kidnapped. These are the people, the heroes, who have allowed Kristof to remain optimistic. Side by side with the worst of humanity, you always see the best.

This is a candid memoir of vulnerability and courage, humility and purpose, mistakes and learning—a singular tale of the trials, tribulations, and hope to be found in a life dedicated to the pursuit of truth.

Roxana Robinson, Author of Leaving, at Scarsdale Library (Sat. 15 Jun, 2024 11:00 am - 12:00 pm)

LeavingRoxana Robinson, author of Leaving, will appear in the Scott Room at Scarsdale Library on Saturday June 15 at 11 am.

"This lithe novel engrosses. Robinson proves that writers can still evoke the silences and renunciations that thwart desire, and that stars still cross" - Amity Gaige, The New York Times Book Review.

Join us in the Scott Room to listen to celebrated novelist and biographer Roxana Robinson as she discusses her latest work, Leaving, an elegant story of star-crossed love set right here in Westchester. Ms. Robinson will briefly read from Leaving, discuss her writing process, and take questions from the audience. Don't miss this lively literary event!

"Warren and Sarah, two 60-year-olds who were a couple in their youth, cross paths at performance of “Tosca.” Years ago, Sarah had contemplated marrying Warren, but decided he would be an unwise choice for a mate. The very things that make him charming once he reappears at 60 — his enthusiasms, his intense desire for intimacy — scared the young Sarah, and she put her chips on Rob instead. He turned out to be the wrong choice, and the marriage was a washout. When Warren and Sarah run into each other at the opera, they’ve got unfinished business."

"Roxana Robinson’s stunning new novel, Leaving, cost me some sleep, and continues to reverberate. A study of the complex joy and pain of late-life love, it is a tour de force and arguably her finest work yet" – Joan Frank, Washington Post.

About the author

Roxana Robinson is the author of eleven books—seven novels, three collections of short stories, and the biography of Georgia O’Keeffe. Four of these were chosen as New York Times Notable Books, two as New York Times Editors’ Choices.

Her fiction has appeared in The New Yorker, The Atlantic, Harper’s, Best American Short Stories, The Southampton Review, Ep!phany and elsewhere. Her work has been widely anthologized and broadcast on NPR. Her books have been published in England, France, Germany, Holland and Spain.

Roxana Robinson has received fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Guggenheim Foundation and the MacDowell Colony, and she was named a Literary Lion by the New York Public Library. Robinson has served on the Boards of PEN and the Authors Guild, and was the president of the Authors Guild. She has received the Barnes and Noble “Writers for Writers Award,” given by Poets and Writers, and the Award for Distinguished Service to the Literary Community from the Authors Guild. She teaches in the MFA Program at Hunter College.

Copies of Leaving will be available for purchase and signing afterward, courtesy of Bronx River Books.

Scarsdale local Marc Ferris, musician and author of Star Spangled Banner: The Unlikely Story of America's National Anthem, will enliven the Scott Room with a fascinating look at the patriotic songs that have symbolized America. From the writing of the poem "Defence of Fort M'Henry" by Francis Scott Key during the War of 1812, the lyrics and its later accompanying tune made a winding, unlikely journey to being adopted by Congress in 1931 - more than 100 years later - as the official national anthem. With plenty of patriotic music and storytelling charm, you'll walk away with a new appreciation for the musical heritage of America.
