The Southern Cayuga Community Read Discussion will take place on May 3rd at 7 pm at the Emily Howland Library.

The book chosen this year is “Life in a Jar: The Irena Sendler Project” by Jack Mayer.  During World War II, Irena Sendler, a Polish Catholic social worker, organized a rescue network of fellow social workers to save 2,500 Jewish children from certain death in the Warsaw ghetto.

Books are available at the Hazard Library on Route 34B in Poplar Ridge and the Aurora Free Library on Route 90.

The event is cosponsored by the Southern Cayuga Anne Frank Tree Project whose theme for the year is “Courage: What Difference Can I Make?”
