Author Leah Harper Bowron and her book, Colorblind: A Novel, tells the story of Lisa, a 6th grade girl who dealt with bullies and racism in the 1960s.
She has developed a new online quiz (because who doesn’t love online quizzes?) for middle schoolers up to adults: “What Kind of Friend are You? Take the Colorblind Quiz!” Great opportunity for discussion between parents and kids.

North Hempstead Town Supervisor Judi Bosworth and the Town Board are pleased to announce that the Town’s Parks and Recreation Department is now offering drop-in summer recreation programs at Broadway Park in Garden City Park, Charles J. Fuschillo Park in Carle Place and John D. Caemmerer Park in Albertson from July 5 until August 18. The programs are completely free and do not require registration. They do require that the child be accompanied by a parent, who must remain at the park while the child is participating in the program.
