The Kids Are Alright  Parenting is hard but so is being a kid. The writers in this show tackle rites of passage, PTA meetings, ER visits, sibling rivalries, braces, bullies, the birds and bees, puppy love, tough love, driving tests, empty nests and more. Presented by the New Rochelle Council on the Arts and the New Rochelle Public Library, this event—followed by a wine and cheese reception—is free and open to the public. SHOW DATE: 3:00 PM Sunday, October 22, 2017 • The Ossie Davis Theater at the New Rochelle Public Library

Immigration Nation • America is created and sustained by countless people born elsewhere who came here to create a better life for themselves and their families. Our writers will share immigrant story about the struggles and successes of grandparents, neighbors, and friends. Coming in 2018

High School • A return to your fondest—or most harrowing—memories with personal stories about marching band or mean girls, bus rides or best friends, homeroom or home grown. The cafeteria, the pop quiz, the field trip, the school play, the twenty year reunion—we’ll hear about those wonderful and awful days—from algebra to zits. Coming in 2018

Summer Jobs • We’ll hear about our writers’ best or—even better—their worst summer jobs. What life lessons did physical labor, low pay, or an embarrassing costume bestow that summer to all the babysitters, toilet cleaners, burger flippers, dog walkers, camp counselors, pool skimmers, pizza drivers, and lawn mowers? Coming in 2018
