Sunday, April 3, 2 p.m. -- Jack Myers' book, "The Future of Men: Masculinity in the Twenty First Century," prepares men and women for the shift in gender norms society is experiencing today. There will also be a Q&A and book signing.

Tuesday, April 5, at 6 p.m. -- Bard professor and author Ian Buruma will discuss his book, "Their Promised Land: My Grandparents In Love And War."

This also features a Q&A and book signing.

Sunday, April 17, at 4 p.m. -- The Hudson Valley YA Society will host NYT best-seller Sarah Rees Brennan ("Tell the Wind and Fire"), Heidi Heilig and Heather Demetrios, as they discuss their new novels. The group is recommended for teens 12 and up -- but adults are welcome too.
