Bunny Boy and Me Author Nancy Larcy Visits the MCL

Bunny Boy and Me book coverNovember 9, 2019, 9:30-11:30am

Bunny Boy and Me, My Triumph Over Chronic Pain with the Help of the World’s Unluckiest, Luckiest Rabbit is the story of the relationship formed between an owner and her house-trained rabbit in sickness and in health. Diagnosed with lupus and fibromyalgia in her mid-thirties, Nancy Laracy rebelliously adopts a rabbit, Bunny Boy who helps to save her life -literally.

Bunny Boy ends up sharing similar autoimmune diseases as his owner. Despite Bunny Boy’s illness, he lives boldly with a joie de vivre and ploughs on with the heart of a lion. He defies the odds and even pioneers a medical treatment that helps save Nancy’s life when it is available for humans.

Bunny Boy and Me is a true story illustrative of how the animal/human bond can heal where medicine falters.

Library Concert Series – Franz Schubert and Breakfast at Tiffany’s

Sunday November 17, 2019 at 2:30pm

Schubertiade – our second, annual program to celebrate the music of Franz Schubert (1797-1828).  This time around, it’s Breakfast at Tiffany’s starring…Franz Schubert! Everyone’s favorite Romantic composer is back from the 1820’s to recreate the quintessentially American story from the 1960s. Using Schubert’s sweeping melodies, soprano, Angela Dinkelman, and pianist, Jason Wirth, will explore the world of Holly Golightly and her cat “Cat” as they search for love and true happiness amidst the “phoniness” of New York City’s Café Society.

Performances will be held in the Public Meeting Room and are free of charge.  Performances will run until 4PM.  Short reception to follow each program (pastries and sparkling water).  Doors will open 30:00 before the start of each program.  Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis.  Please contact 973-285-6887 for more information.
