  • What's Wrong with NJ Transit?

    7:00 PM:  Open Talk facilitated by Liz.  This is GAAMC's very popular discussion group, which meets most Mondays, in our library.  

    8:00 PM:  What the Heck is Wrong with NJ Transit & How Do We Fix It?

    Have you had your train cancelled, combined or delayed?  Perhaps all three?  Come listen to Len Resto, GAAMC’s newest Trustee, who will make a presentation and explain the myriad problems facing NJ Transit. Len is also President of the New Jersey Association of Railroad Passengers, a rail advocacy group founded in 1980 to give transit users a greater voice in THEIR future. Len will cover how NJ Transit got into this current mess, the pain that is still to come and his “out of the box” thoughts on how to fix the public transportation broken system. It’s an insight into something that affects many of us, especially in the LGBTQ Community which is more transit dependent than you might think.

  • Cara Cilento

    Join our happy chatters in the library at 7:00 PM for our weekly Open Talk discussion group.  Open Talk will run until approximately 8:00 PM, when we take a 10 minute intermission.  
    At approximately 8:10 PM, meet local lesbian author and photographer, Cara Cilento, who comes to GAAMC to share her new published book Snapshots: Say Cheese!
    Cara Cilento grew up in a small suburban North Jersey town. Her family of origin did not. Cara’s grandparents were a combination of Italian immigrants and first generation Italian-Americans. They were a close-knit family that lived in Newark, NJ and who pushed academic and personal success. Most of all they pushed assimilation.
         
    Cara Cilento came out as a lesbian later in life and hasn’t looked back. She is undeniably proud of the LGBT Community and it shows in her everyday. Cara Cilento is a divorced mother of two boys and three dogs. She has been a speech therapist for over twenty years in various public schools. Currently, she lives in suburban North Jersey. Snapshots: Say Cheese! is her first published book which has taken a lifetime of experiences—traumatic, joyful, abusive, healing and reaffirming—as her muse.

    Books will be available for purchase at this event.  

    If you are unable to attend, but would still like to purchase your own copy, or if you'd like to read your copy in advance of meeting Cara, Snapshots is available on Amazon.com in both Kindle and paperback editions.
