It was a magical afternoon. A number of distinguished women shared their experiences with the community to celebrate Women’s History Month. The packed audience at Hillside Library, Richmond Hill Branch, was treated to presentations of the highest quality as the women discussed a wide range of topics that included mental health, Maya Angelou’s ‘Phenomenal Woman’, the experiences of a young attorney in Queens and gender bias in the legal system. Jannelle Allong, a graduate of West Point, crowned the afternoon’s proceedings with a riveting presentation of women in the military.

The offerings of these professionals were preceded by the narration of the children. They chose a variety of stories to highlight the resilience of women and their poise and confidence shone like stars on a clear night.

    Sorry I can’t be there, ladies. This weekend, I’ll be off to the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books held in the grounds of the University of Southern California.
