By Polly Kreisman

Check out these non-fiction books by local authors- and consider them as gifts, even for yourself…


 



New Rochelle writer and historian Linda Tarrant-Reid’s recently published, beautiful,  Discovering Black America was read from by Academy Award-nominated actress and New Rochelle resident Ruby Dee at the Thomas Paine Cottage Museum in October.


 


 



DON’T EAT ME!™ A Cookbook for Animal Lovers, by Robin Gager is a beautifully illustrated and mouth-watering collection of recipes that are good for you and cruelty-free. She makes the case, as well, that vegetarians and vegan live healthier lives. Gager works at Larchmont’s ReCologie, if you’d like it autograped.


 



One Day: Photos of Life in New Rochelle 10-10-10– Photographer and New Rochelle resident Karen Hessel  put together images by photographers in the parks, on the streets and in the air.


 



A Day in the Life of Larchmont–Apparently, they didn’t know New Ro was doing a similar project (above), but Larchmont, too, had a Day in the Life Project that was also just published as a book. The Larchmont Historical Society asked photographers to shoot images of the Village on one day, October 20, 2011.
