When the Tusten-Cochecton library was looking for women who had made a difference in their community, it didnt have to look very far. Just down the street lives Nora Eisenberg, author of the new novel about Iraq war veterans, When You Come Home. She was presented with the Insight award at a small ceremony at the library this past Sunday. (Nora will be reading from her novel this coming Sunday, March 29 at 2:00 p.m. at the Delaware Valley Arts Alliance in Narrowsburg, NY).
The idea behind the award, according to Laura Moran, programming director for three local libraries, was to honor women who have insight into issues that affect our local community and who work to make a difference. The project is ongoing and will honor more women in the future.
