The Rules of Magic by Alice Hoffman

Tuesday, May 7 at 2:00 pm

New York City at the cusp of the sixties, when the whole world is about to change - Susanna Owens knows that her three children are dangerously unique. From the start Susanna sets down rules for her children: No walking in the moonlight, no red shoes, no wearing black, no cats, no crows, no candles, no books about magic. And most importantly, never, ever, fall in love. But when her children visit their aunt Isabelle, in the small Massachusetts town where the Owens family has been blamed for everything that has ever gone wrong, they uncover family secrets and begin to understand the truth of who they are.

Book Talk with Gerry Halligan

“Kevin Guest House”

Tuesday, May 14 at 6:30 PM

Kevin Guest House was founded by Claudia and Cyril Garvey, whose 13 year old son, Kevin Garvey, passed away after an eighteen month fight against leukemia in January 1972. During his treatment, the Garveys became aware of many other families traveling for the care of a child that were unable to find affordable lodging.

Shortly before Kevin’s death, Mr. and Mrs. Garvey purchased the property located at 782 Ellicott Street, formed a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and with the help of Roswell Park, renovated the house with the support of volunteers and donations from the community. Kevin Guest House welcomed their first guest on July 26, 1972; just six months after Kevin lost his battle.

Author, Gerald L. Halligan has been given the distinct privilege of helping raise awareness of the ongoing mission of the Kevin Guest House. The images, graphics, and documents have been provided by the Garvey family, staff and volunteers of the Kevin Guest House, and local historical archives.

Limited to 40 seats. Call 332-4375 to reserve your spot. Mr. Halligan will bring copies of the book to sell and sign. Proceeds from the book help Kevin’s House.
