Literary Café is a book chat program. The format is simple: Bring a few of your recent favorite books and tell the other members of the group what you like about them. If you don’t have a copy of the book you want to talk about, that’s okay, too. The books can be new or old, fiction or non-fiction, classic or contemporary. There is no required reading, and you will have the opportunity to learn about books recommended by other group members. Refreshments will be served, courtesy of the Friends of the Cranford Public Library! Registration is not required. Attend as many sessions as you’d like. Admission is free and all are welcome. Sessions take place in the Raddin Room, and are one hour long.

Getting Started with Government Contracting @ UCEDC
Jan 22 @ 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Getting Started with Government Contracting @ UCEDC | Cranford | New Jersey | United States

We’ll lead you through the registration processes for the federal and state procurement systems, show you exactly where to go to get a clear picture of who’s buying what, and share the secrets to becoming a sub-contractor, among other essential practices.

This is your opportunity to get the clear directions you need to get started in government contracting. No matter what you are selling, somebody in the federal or state government is probably interested in buying it! You’ll start small, but some of our most successful clients started out with contracts worth just a few hundred dollars!

Already registered with the government but need a refresher in making the most of procurement opportunities? Attend this workshop and you’ll come away better prepared to find relevant postings and close the sale!

“Josephine: The Empress Gardened” @ Cranford Community Center
Jan 22 @ 7:00 pm
"Josephine: The Empress Gardened" @ Cranford Community Center | Cranford | New Jersey | United States
Please join the Hanson Park Conservancy on Tuesday, January 22 at 7:00 PM at the Cranford Community Center as we welcome Garden Historian Lesley Parness for a very special presentation, “Josephine—The Empress Gardened.”  Ms. Parness will discuss how French Empress Josephine’s fine taste informed 18th and 19th century style, from couture fashion to interior design.  Likewise, she was influenced by her Caribbean heritage, her narrow escape from the guillotine, and her legendary love for flowers.  When divorced from her husband, Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte, this powerful style-maker and lifelong fashionista focused her energies on her estate, Malmaison. There, Josephine’s passion for plants grew and bloomed.  Her legendary love of roses stopped a war, cost a fortune, set explorers to sail, and started a floral industry that endures today. 
 
Lesley Parness is the retired Superintendent of Horticultural Education at New Jersey’s Morris County Park Commission where she oversaw programming at The Frelinghuysen Arboretum, Willowwood Arboretum and Bamboo Brook Outdoor Education Center.  She is a member of the Herb Society of America, The Council on Horticultural and Botanical Literature, and Garden State Gardens, a consortium of New Jersey’s public gardens of which she is a Founding Member.    
 
The Cranford Community Center is located at 220 Walnut Ave. in Cranford, NJ.  The program is free and open to the public.  No registration is required, but seating is available on a first-come, first-serve basis.  This presentation is sponsored by the Hanson Park Conservancy.  To learn more, please visit our website, www.hansonparkconservancy.comor like us on Facebook.
