Sarah Crow: An Intimate Chat with Winnie Frolik

Tuesday January 28 @ 2:00 pm – Join us for an afternoon of chilling historical fiction and warm treats as we talk with local author Winnie Frolik about her debut novel, Sarah Crow.

Set in Georgian England, the novel follows orphan Sarah Pole as she attempts to carve a life out of little means and no relations. Written as an homage to nineteenth-century classics like Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights, Frolik’s book balances a gentle compassion for history’s unfortunates with a dark discovery of a little-known piece of English history.

We’ll have warm desserts like hot cocoa and a chocolate fountain to counter the effects of chilly England (and wintry Pittsburgh), so be our guest!

Bio: Winnie Frolik was born and raised in Pittsburgh. She completed the International Baccalaureate program at Schenley High School and then attended the University of Pittsburgh where she completed a double major in English Literature and Creative Writing. Sarah Crow is Winnie’s debut historical fiction novel. Register Today!

A Yummy New Year with Chef Jason

Wednesday January 29 @ 1:30 pm – Our busy modern lives often make us feel as if our plates are full without any room to spare for healthy eating habits. The library wants you to start the new year with both a clean slate and a healthy plate, so join us as we welcome Chef Jason of Atria Senior Living for our first “talk and taste” food demonstration of 2020!

He’ll give us the inside dish on all things hearty and healthy, provide us with easy recipes, and pass out samples to make our taste buds cheer!

Not all nutritious meals have to taste like medicine, so kiss that crummy tummy goodbye and say hello to a program that will give you lots to digest! Register today!

Dementia Friends: an Information Luncheon

Wednesday February 5 @ 2:00 pm – Join a growing movement of people like you who are helping fellow community members living with dementia.  A little support and a little knowledge can make a big difference!

You’ll learn what dementia is, what it’s like to live with the disease, and some tips for communicating with people living with dementia.  Everyone who attends is asked to turn their new understanding of dementia into a practical action that can help someone living in your community.  The action can be as big or small as you choose –every action counts! A light luncheon will be served.
