Please join us in welcoming New York Times-bestselling author Allison Pataki for a discussion of her newly-published memoir about the harrowing year after her husband suffered a debilitating stroke at age thirty and about his difficult road to recovery. Described as a “manifesto for living,” the book is an uplifting story about the transformative power of faith and resilience. Pataki is also the author of Sisi, The Traitor’s Wife, and The Accidental Empress, and is the daughter of former New York State Governor George E. Pataki. A book signing will follow the discussion.

(2018) Starring Catherine Keener and Jeanne Tripplehorn. A small-town nurse named Susette Kelo emerges as the reluctant leader of her working-class neighbors in their struggle to save their homes from political and corporate interests bent on seizing the land and handing it over to Pfizer Corporation. Susette's battle goes all the way to the US Supreme Court and the controversial 5-4 decision in Kelo vs. City of New London gave government officials the power to bulldoze a neighborhood for the benefit of a multibillion-dollar corporation. The decision outraged Americans across the political spectrum, and that passion fueled reforms that helped curb eminent domain abuse. Rated PG; 98 min. Discussion and refreshments to follow.Location:AWPL Community RoomAge Group:Adult
