Fun and Fabulous Photo Workshop and Photo Safari

Join us on Saturday, October 7, from 9:30 am to 12:30 pm for a photography workshop and photo safari with Professional Photographer Deborah Tual, cosponsored by Perrot Memorial Library and the Garden Club of Old Greenwich. We’ll start in the Youth Services Program Room of the Radcliffe Children’s Library, Perrot Library, with a workshop with pro tips and information on taking better photos with more interest and impact using key composition guidelines. Then we’ll venture outside and go on a Photo Safari at a nearby garden to put that information to practice. This fun learning experience ends with a discussion back at the library that includes image sharing and some tips on photo editing to enhance your photos.

“Something Wild” Shines Spotlight on Domestic Violence

October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month, and we are pleased to welcome Leslie Coplin, LCSW, outreach, engagement, and training coordinator, YWCA Greenwich, who will lead us in a discussion of Something Wild, by Hanna Halperin, on Wednesday, October 4, at 7 pm in the Youth Services Program Room, Radcliffe Children’s Library, Perrot Memorial Library.

Told in alternating perspectives that deftly interweave past and present, Something Wild is a magnetic, unflinching portrait of the bond between sisters, as well as a psychologically acute exploration of the legacy of divorce, the ways trauma reverberates over generations, and how it might be possible to overcome the past.

Copies of the book will be available for checkout at our Circulation Desk and through our catalog.
