An Evening with Former Governor David Paterson,
Tuesday, April 18, 2017
6:30 to 8 p.m.
Scarsdale High School

David Paterson Be sure to register now and mark your calendar for this special event with an engaging and fascinating leader. Please note that admission is free for high school students and younger.

Paterson comes prepared to share stories of his own interactions with President Trump and his thoughts about the relationships between politicians, their appointed staff members, and journalists. He will also reflect on his experiences growing up blind while being educated in a public school system before the enactment of many current laws that protect the rights of disabled students.

The evening lecture will include ample time for "no holds barred" questions and answers as Hon. Paterson provides insights and predictions for New York State.

We also hope you saw our dedicated eblast to come to our upcoming Tales from the 'Dale and Beyond (aka True Suburban Stories -- Told Live) on Wednesday, April 5, 2017, starting at 7 p.m. at Heathcote Elementary School, 26 Palmer Avenue in Scarsdale. Modeled after the wildly popular NPR series the Moth, SAS’s own live storytelling event will feature a multi-generational mix of local luminaries, former Scarsdale residents, and award-winning storytellers for a heartwarming and often hilarious program of true yarns. Admission is free for high school students and younger to this event as well.
