Story Surge!

On 29 October 2012, the storm surge of Superstorm Sandy devastated the South Shore of Long Island.

On 16 February 2013, member sof Voices in the Glen will be putting on a Story Surge to help restore a library that was one of Sandy's victims. This is the library in my home town of Island Park and I am super excited about being able to do something to help.


This is going to be a very entertaining evening at a wonderful venue (President Obama and his daughters bought books there for Christmas presents on Small Business Saturday and they sell wine and chocolates, too), so I am hoping for a great turn out.

If you are interested but not able to attend you can send a check, payable to The Island Park Public Library to

Attn: Island Park Public Library Restoration Fund
Nassau Library System
900 Jerusalem Ave.
Uniondale, NY, 11553-3039

And, yes, I have a ton of other things to blog about, but this has been occupying a lot of my mental energy for the past several weeks. Expect a surge of catching up come Sunday.
