Please contact Mary Vergowven to let her know if you plan to attend.  We need a count of attendees for pizza and to let the library staff know how many to expect.  Be sure to be in the library before the regular closing time at 5pm!   

September GSMC Meeting

September GSMC Meeting  (Meeting)

Monroe County Community College, Administration Building -Rooms 173 A & B
Irene Miller, a Holocaust survivor, will take you on a survival journey little  written  and  known about. You will sleep in the winter under an open sky on the no man’s land; you will freeze in a Siberian labor camp where the bears come to your door front. In Uzbekistan, you will live on boiled grass or broiled onions, and shiver with malaria. You will spend years in orphanages. When this is over you will wonder how a child with this background grows up to become a positive, creative, accomplished woman with  a joy of living and love to share. Irene will have copies of her book, Into No Man's Land, available for purchase.
For more information about Irene and her book, check out her website
As always, the public is welcome to attend.
