YOGA AT LIBRARY - Free monthly Chair Yoga classes are returning to the Hampstead Public Library on the first Tuesday of every month at 3:00 p.m. The next class is on September 3, the day after Labor Day. Men and women are invited to participate, and can sit or stand and move at their own pace. This class is terrific for stretching, strengthening and improving your health.

SEPTEMBER BOOK DISCUSSION- On September 19 at 1:00 p.m., the Hampstead Public Library’s Third Thursday Book Group will be discussing “Tell the Wolves I’m Home” by Carol Rifka Brunt. In this novel, the author has made a singular portrait of how the late 1980’s AIDS epidemic transforms a girl and her family. It is a literary coming-of-age story about the strange and tense friendship that evolves between teenage June and her Uncle Finn’s partner Toby. This novel is also about ways to leave New York without leaving New York, a mean older sister who used to be a best friend, and an artist’s final portrait. It’s about what happens when you accidentally fall in love with someone you’re not supposed to fall in love with, and how jealousy and shame can destroy the sweetest of friendships. Finally, this novel is an unforgettable depiction of the way compassion can make us whole again. Copies of “Tell the Wolves I’m Home” are available at the library. Newcomers are always welcome to the discussions.
