When Gabi and Jay first fell passionately in love, they lived on different continents. Separated for nine years by circumstances and distance, they eventually found a way to marry. Over three decades though, alcoholism tore them apart, and Gabi moved on.
Then a fatal diagnosis forced them both to make decisions. Without love, Jay’s final journey would be lonely and hard, and Gabi knew she had to return to care for him. She never expected to fall in love again.
This moving memoir doesn’t shy away from the realities of life, but the relationship between these two lovers, tested by separations, alcoholism, and to its ultimate limit by pancreatic cancer, proves that love—and a sense of humor—can conquer anything, even death.

Darien Library, along with Norwalk Public Library, is thrilled to celebrate Juneteenth with the Ubuntu Storytellers, a diverse group of Black, brown and mixed-race professional storytellers. They will share their messages of triumph and jubilation, but also their experiences with discrimination, racism, and microaggressions. These stories of "being" and of "being in the skin we are in" aim to engage and open hearts, as well as deepen our empathy, inspiring us to be different and make a difference.
The spirit of Ubuntu translates to "I am, because you are" and relates to the fact that we as humans are all connected and can only grow and progress through the growth and progression of others. Humans are connected to each other and what we do affects the whole world.
Please note that this program is geared towards adults in its content.
Registration for this event will close on June 15, 2022 @ 7:00pm.

We know Hellen Keller as the blind and deaf young lady who overcame her disabilities to become a speaker, writer, and champion for those afflicted with blindness and deafness. This presentation, however, will delve into Hellen Keller's politics. For example, Hellen Keller was a member of the Socialist Party and became a member of the International Workers of the World or Wobblies. Keller was also friends with some of the leading Leftists of the day. The presentation will also explain Socialism, clarifying the difference between it and Marxism.

It was love at first sight when actress Tembi met professional chef, Saro, on a street in Florence. There was just one problem: Saro’s traditional Sicilian family did not approve of his marrying a black American woman. However, the couple, heartbroken but undeterred, forged on. They built a happy life in Los Angeles, with fulfilling careers deep friendships, and the love of their lives: a baby girl they adopted at birth. Eventually, they reconciled with Saro’s family just as he faced a formidable cancer that would consume all their dreams.
All along the way she reflects on her and Saro’s romance—an incredible love story that leaps off the pages.
