Concordia's Fall Literary Events will Inspire Your Summer Reading

September 17: Concordia College and the Bronxville Adult School will host John Leland, New York Times writer and author of Happiness is a Choice You Make. A year of engaging with six people aged 85+ completely changed Leland's understanding of old age, inspiring this wise and insightful book.

In the inaugural event, Poe Reads Poe, historical interpreter Charles Wissinger will appear in character as Edgar Allan Poe reading from his work. Accompanying period music performed by Concordia Conservatory faculty will make this an unforgettable evening. 

 

October 15: Kate Moore, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of The Radium Girls, will be our guest for Books & Coffee. Coveted WWI factory jobs painting watch faces with a mysterious new substance called radium end in tragedy for several young women. The book tells the story of one of America's biggest scandals, and a groundbreaking battle for workers' rights.
