Peruse in a Park, Part 1

While your comfy chair and the Library are nice, Larchmont has plenty of other places to sit down, relax, and read a good book. This summer, in conjunction with Friends of Larchmont Parks, we will highlighting parks all summer with a specially tailored reading (and/or listening) list.

This week it’s Constitution Park’s turn. Constitution Park is right across the street from the Library. You can drop in, grab a book from the display on the mantel in the Reading Room and then go read in the gazebo. Once the Friends of Larchmont Parks finish fundraising, there will be plenty more nice reading spots in the Park. To learn more about their plans and to help support them, check out their website.

We’ll start off with books by those two unlikely U. S. Supreme Court  bench buddies, the late Antonin Scalia and Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Throw in a Steve Berry novel about North Koreans having documentary proof of the illegality of the 16th Amendment (the income tax) and you’ve got some books worth reading in a park. While you’re reading, you can listen to the cast recording of Hamilton. The entire list is below. Just click on the arrows to scroll.

Next up: Turtle Park, aka Vanderburgh Park.
