Writing Matters Panel Discussion
Ten years ago, it was possible to operate a bookstore without internet access, and most libraries still had card catalogs. What are the best and worst aspects of today's integration of the physical and virtual spheres? Join us for a Writing Matters exploration of this and other questions relating to the new partnership of authors, bookstores, libraries and resource centers, with panelists Gioya McRae, Jenny Milchman, Margot Sage-EL and Mercedes Salvador.

An Inspirational Story
at St. John's Episcopal Church, 55 Montclair Ave., Montclair
Laura and Maurice met on 56th street in Manhattan in 1986, when she was a 35-year-old single, successful ad sales executive, and he was an 11-year-old homeless panhandler. He asked me for spare change; she ignored him and kept walking. But something made her stop, and turn around, and go back to him, and that day Laura took Maurice to lunch. They met the Monday after that, and the following Monday, and every Monday for the next four years, and hundreds of times after that. Today, 25 years later, they are still great friends.
