NYSCA Book Discussion 10:30 AM– 12:00 PM

Me Before You by JoJo Moyes will be featured on Friday, July 10, 2015 at 10:30 a.m. at the library. It is a love story and a family story, but above all it’s a story of the bravery and sustained effort needed to redirect the path of a life once it’s been pushed off course. Louisa Clark, a 26-year-old working-class girl, lands a position as a “care assistant” to an intelligent, wealthy and very angry 35-year-old man named Will Traynor, who has spent the past two years as a quadriplegic after being hit by a motorbike.
Audrey Kupferberg, facilitator for this discussion, will retire from teaching at SUNY Albany later this summer. She is a film/video historian and appraiser and continues to do film (and occasionally theater) commentary at WAMC Northeast Public Radio. Additionally, she produce films, and is currently working on a documentary of the first African-American woman to graduate Yale School of Art.
