By Margaret Mager, President, and Irena Choi Stern, Publicity Chair, Friends of the Bronxville Public Library


Sep. 5, 2018: “FALL in Love with Books” is the catchy name for the author series organized by the Friends of the Bronxville Public Library (FOBPL) from October 4 to November 13 in the Yeager Room. Most of the author talks listed below will take place at 7:00 pm, unless otherwise noted, and will be followed by a reception and a book sale and signing.

"The Friends board is excited to bring such a terrific roster of authors to our library this fall,” said Margaret Mager, president of FOBPL. “The books they have written span the gamut from fiction to nonfiction, new books and past publications, science to history to romance. We are especially pleased to have Bronxville resident Christian Klose, Columbia University professor and author of Frack This!, as part of the fall 2018 author talk series.”

Thursday, Oct. 4Fiona Davis, author of The Masterpiece.

Tuesday, November 13
: Alexis Clark, author of Enemies in Love: A German POW, a Black Nurse and an Unlikely Romance. Based on a New York Times story by Clark that drew national attention, Enemies in Love paints a true and deeply moving narrative of forbidden love during World War II and a shocking, hidden history of race on the home front. Elinor Powell was an African American nurse in the U.S. military during World War II; Frederick Albert was a soldier in Hitler’s army, captured by the Allies and shipped to a prisoner-of-war camp in the Arizona desert. Register here.

All events are free and open to the public. The Yeager Room can accommodate up to 70 people, and registration will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Books are available at Womrath Bookshop.

“We hope you find something that interests you among this great selection,” Mager said. “The Friends of the Bronxville Public Library provides community residents with year-round funding of author talks with leading writers including, this past January, Min Jin Lee, author of Pachinko. And don’t forget to donate to the Friends of the Bronxville Public Library today. Your donation makes a difference!”

Bronxville Overview

Bronxville Overview

Bronxville is a quaint village (one square mile) located just 16 miles north of midtown Manhattan (roughly 30 minutes on the train) and has a population of approximately 6,500. It is known as a premier community with an excellent public school (K-12) and easy access to Manhattan. Bronxville offers many amenities including an attractive business district, a hospital (Lawrence Hospital), public paddle and tennis courts, fine dining at local restaurants, two private country clubs and a community library.

While the earliest settlers of Bronxville date back to the first half of the 18th century, the history of the modern suburb of Bronxville began in 1890 when William Van Duzer Lawrence purchased a farm and commissioned the architect, William A. Bates, to design a planned community of houses for well-known artists and professionals that became a thriving art colony. This community, now called Lawrence Park, is listed on the National register of Historic Places and many of the homes still have artists’ studios. A neighborhood association within Lawrence Park called “The Hilltop Association” keeps this heritage alive with art shows and other events for neighbors.

Bronxville offers many charming neighborhoods as well as a variety of living options for residents including single family homes, town houses, cooperatives and condominiums. One of the chief benefits of living in “the village” is that your children can attend the Bronxville School.

The Bronxville postal zone (10708, known as “Bronxville PO”) includes the village of Bronxville as well as the Chester Heights section of Eastchester, parts of Tuckahoe and the Lawrence Park West, Cedar Knolls, Armour Villa and Longvale sections of Yonkers. Many of these areas have their own distinct character. For instance, the Armour Villa section has many historic homes and even has its own newsletter called “The Villa Voice” which reports on neighborhood news.
