This classic coming-of-age movie is based on Stephen King's novella The Body, and stars Wil Wheaton, Jerry O' Connell, River Phoenix and Corey Feldman. Great giveaways from the Friends' Book Stop after the movie!

Building Body Image for Teens

In the last of a six week program, join The Contemporary Movement as we examine one of society's most challenging issues, Body Image and Self Esteem. We will look at the in-depth struggles individuals face surrounding the subject of body image. We will also discuss what healthy body image looks like and how we may achieve a positive outlook for ourselves. Through discussion questions and activities, dancers will have the opportunity to form opinions, develop a voice, and consider what it might be like for others who struggle to love themselves and their bodies (more...)

Author Talk: Wendy Rapaport with Friendship Matters

In Friendship Matters, the meaning of friendship is explored in the personal case study of two women, Dr. Wendy Rapaport and Dr. Sanda Bernstein, who have been friends for 47 years, as they examine the complexities of maintaining a good friendship.  The book is a combination of memoir, life lessons and laughter. The authors are psychologists whose years of clinical practice, postdoctoral training and applied research have led them to prioritize relationships in enhancing mental and physical health.
