    A reading and discussion of Jerry's new novel, CONVERGENCE will take us thirty-two years in to the near future.  This dystopian/sci-fi warning will provoke, entertain and energize us to consider what kind of world we want to inhabit.

     

    An author signing will follow the discussion with copies of the book available for purchase. 

     

    Jerry Sander is the author of the novels PERMISSION SLIPS and UNLIMITED CALLING (CERTAIN RESTRICTIONS APPLY).

    Jerry is a New York psychotherapist who has worked with teenagers and their families for over three decades. Influenced forever by the work of Aldous Huxley and George Orwell he is deeply concerned about the trajectory of the world we are leaving to our children and is grateful to have been chosen as the Authorized Representative for the Restored United States of America – In Exile for the purpose of conveying CONVERGENCE.

    He is a father of four young adults and lives with his wife and adopted rescue dog, Scout, who hails from Galveston, Texas.

    Jerry is currently completing his episodic memoir THE GUYLAND, set on Long Island of the 1960’s / 70’s.

    Archaeologist Edward J. Lenik will present material from his new book, Ramapough Lenape Heritage. The book focuses on the evidence of continuous indigenous occupation uncovered from early 20th century explorations by amateur archaeologists to the careful, scientific excavations and analyses of the late 20th and early 21st century professionals. Much of the material in this book can be found only in cultural resource studies filed in New York and New Jersey state repositories. Mr. Lenik has studied this area for fifty years, publishing several books as evidence and understanding has grown. Copies of the book will be available for purchase and signing after the presentation.

    Scandal abounds in Shakespeare’s hilarious, biting comedy about lies, courtship and the chaos created in pursuit of true love. The famous bantering lovers, Benedick and Beatrice, trade barbs while matching wits (and hearts) in this celebrated romantic romp!

     

    This program is made possible by a generous gift from Glenn P. and Susan D. Dickes to the AWPL Foundation, and is part of Shakespeare in American Communities, a program of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest.
