Wednesday, February 14, Valentine's Day: Not a public holiday, but celebrated in many parts of the world.
Thursday, February 15, 6:00 pm, Poet Linda Gregerson Discusses the Craft of Poetry at Sarah Lawrence College: Poet Linda Gregerson will give a presentation as part of the Craft of Poetry series at Sarah Lawrence College. She will discuss the second person in poetry, the "you," either implicit or named. The event will take place at 6:00 pm in the Slonim House Living Room at 911 Kimball Avenue on the campus of the college. For more information, click here or call 914-395-2412.
Monday, February 19, Presidents Day: There is no consensus on whether there is an apostrophe in "Presidents Day," and, if there is, where it should be placed. Moreover, there is no national holiday called "Presidents Day" (apostrophe or not). The states determine the name for the holiday that is observed on the third Monday of February. In New York State, it is officially "Washington's Birthday (Observed)," but it is generally referred to colloquially as "Presidents Day" (apostrophe or not), and many places, including various New York State governmental websites, refer to it as "Presidents' Day" or "President's Day." The Bronxville School refers to it as "Presidents' Day" on its calendar, as do Concordia College and St. Joseph School. Note also that Lincoln's Birthday is a holiday in only a few states, including New York State (where it is a floating holiday for some employees).
