East Brunswick Public Library kicks off 2014 with several events

January 10, 2014 by  

January will be a busy month for the East Brunswick Public Library. Over the course of the month, the library will host several events, including a book sale and book launch.

Up until January 12, the library is holding a ‘New Year’s Resolutions’ book sale. It will start at 9:00 am each day. Health, fitness, cookbooks, and self-help books will be for sale at reduced prices. The goal of the book sale is to help people get started on and stick with their new year’s resolutions. The book sale is hosted by the Friends of Library, who can use printing services to promote the event.

On Sunday, January 12 at 2:00 pm, the library will celebrate the publication of Michael Kesler, PhD’s piece ‘Hurdles – When Cancer Strikes a Family’. In the book, Dr. Kesler shares his experience after his first wife was diagnosed with, and ultimately died from, breast cancer.

Dr. Kesler’s stepdaughter, Rabbi Esther Reed, from Rutgers University, will read from the book. Howard Paul, PhD, a clinical psychologist will offer a professional opinion on the impact of such a diagnosis on families, and Dr. Kesler will be at the event to sign his book.

Finally, in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. day, Marvin Jefferson will be performing his one-person Chautauqua as the Reverend King, at the library. Jefferson performed at the venue last year in a portrayal Paul Robeson, and can be seen this time round at 2:00 pm on January 19.
