May-22-19 06:00 PM (In)visible Women NYC Storytelling Evening (In)visble Women is a nonprofit, student-led organization focused on helping to make our community a safer, happier and healthier place for women on the streets and in transitional shelters. Based in the United Nations International School in Manhattan, our organization started in October 2017 and has been run and operated by high school students who have a passion for bettering our community, specifically those who feel that we cannot turn a blind eye to the disadvantaged homeless women around us. On Wednesday, May 22nd from 6-8pm, we will be hosting a storytelling event centered around the theme of security with all funds going directly to the Dwelling Place, a privately funded women's homeless shelter in Manhattan to which we have contributed to for the past 2 years (https://thedwellingplaceofny.org/). We strive to provide women who suffer challenges, from job discrimination to lack of affordable housing, with the necessities to help them adjust to shelter life and look to a brighter, safer future. Learn more about us on our website: https://invisiblewomennyc.org/.

Jun-12-19 06:00 PM Book Launch: Coney Island Siren by Theresa Varela Join Theresa Varela for a reading from her latest novel, Coney Island Siren, an author talk, audience Q & A, and book signing!  Coney Island Siren Call it coincidence or call it fate when Maggie Fuentes, rummaging through a Coney Island flea market, stumbles upon a handwritten diary whose author, a young girl of the nineteenth century named Ellen, reveals dreadful secrets that parallel Maggie’s own. Maggie sinks deep into the sinister maelstrom of her lover, Police Officer Frank Ramirez, until the stark urgency of lines written by a kindred spirit compel her to confront the reality of her—and their—lives. Far removed from each other in time but bonded by the white-capped ocean, amusement park locale, and converging torments, it seems particularly apt that the sleight-of-hand landscape of luck and chance provides the setting for Maggie’s harrowing and hypnotic encounter with turmoil, then kismet, and ultimately, clarity and reawakening.  Award-winning Puerto Rican Author Theresa Varela was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. She is the recipient of International Latino Book Awards for Covering the Sun with My Hand in 2015 and Nights of Indigo Blue: A Daisy Muñiz Mystery in 2016. We will have light refreshments.

One thing is for sure, we are definitely not your Babushka’s RSJ!
