Workshop | Morning Fitness


One hour of walking, stretching, and strengthening exercises. For a breath of fresh air, take your workouts outdoors. Parks are becoming a logical alternative environment for those who want to add variety to their workouts, or who just don't like the gym. And, it's an affordable way to increase physical activity opportunities, because there's nothing special to build. Exercise with a view, in natural sunlight, with green scenery all around bestows health benefits that can't be found indoors. Scientific studies have shown that the pleasure of being outdoors for example gives your brain, psyche, and immune system an extra boost. Led by trained professionals, and suitable for all levels. Wear comfortable clothing and bring water. Every Tuesday and Thursday

Author Reading | 2 New Books: One Day on the Gold Line / Dear Jane


Feminist in their politics and their writing, authors Marina DelVecchio and Carla Sameth each use their work to reflect the need for bringing voice and volition to female experiences dealing with trauma and resilience. Carla Sameth’s will be reading from her memoir, One Day on the Gold Line (Black Rose Writing, 2019), which tells the story of a lesbian Jewish single mother raising a black son in Los Angeles. Based on her adoption and teen years, Marina DelVecchio’s Dear Jane tells the story of a suicidal teen whose letters to Charlotte Bronte’s Jane Eyre give her the courage she needs to overcome the abuses of her childhood and the silences of her new life as a Greek-American adoptee.

Author Reading | White Flights: Race, Fiction, and the American Imagination


White Flights is a meditation on whiteness in American fiction and culture from the end of the civil rights movement to the present. At the heart of the book, Jess Row ties “white flight”—the movement of white Americans into segregated communities, whether in suburbs or newly gentrified downtowns—to white writers setting their stories in isolated or emotionally insulated landscapes, from the mountains of Idaho in Marilynne Robinson’s Housekeeping to the claustrophobic households in Jonathan Franzen’s The Corrections.
