Wallingford Public Library and Masonicare at Ashlar Village invite the public to this author tea celebrating “The Bridge Ladies: A Memoir.” Hear author Betsy Lerner's stories about how the game of Bridge sustained five Connecticut women for over fifty years.

 Betsy Lerner’s book about her mom’s fifty-year-old, New Haven area, Bridge club provides an unexpected connection across a generational divide between mother and daughter. It’s a funny, intimate, and deeply affecting story that shares a little about Bridge and a lot about life.

She also received the Tony Godwin Publishing Prize for Editors Under 35. After working as an editor for 15 years, she became an agent and is currently a partner with Dunow, Carlson and Lerner Literary Agency.

Refreshments will be served, advance registration is requested. Please make your reservation by contacting Wallingford Public Library at 203-265-6754 or online at www.wallingfordlibrary.org.

When “Hoops in the Hood” Became “Hoops in the House”

When Covid-19 came to Chicago, Hoops in the Hood, LISC's long-running basketball-community-building-and-safety program, morphed into the perfect antidote for quarantine stress and boredom. Now, hundreds of kids and their parents across the city are staying active, and logging their exercise minutes, in a true Chicago-style competition between neighborhoods.

Our Communities Need a Marshall Plan

In his latest video message, LISC CEO Maurice A. Jones reflects on the disproportionate health and economic impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on underinvested communities and communities of color, and calls for a 21st-century Marshall Plan—intensive and broad investment that will both help people and enterprises recover, and redress the inequities that set the stage for the fallout of the current crisis.

We Have Reached the Housing Cliff

As we look back on Affordable Housing Month, marked every year in May, it's clear that the need for safe, affordable housing—as well as the threats to providing it—have never been more acute. Denise Scott, LISC's EVP for Programs, makes a compelling case for why, during the Covid era and beyond, we need a robust national plan to safeguard homes for all of our country's vulnerable residents, as well as for the organizations that make those homes possible.
