Local Author Luis Quiros, will be speaking on his new book, Justice Unplugged, on Monday, June 18 @ 7pm.
“Justice Unplugged is written impatiently from the margins, unearthing our endless narratives - pulling the plug on justice as it has come to be defined - and reclaiming its meaning. Embedded into every fabric of society, taking some of our own to fight against us, the Non-Others use our language, knowledge, safety and even mother nature against our survival,” notes Quiros. “For these reasons, I could never be a bystander-Others had to know history of resistance and thriving spirit, and come together amid the chaos. Justice Unplugged incites action through its interdisciplinary analysis and its application of bridging street smarts to scholarship.”
Luis Quiros, is also a community organizer, activist, and educator. Quiros pursues justice aimed at dismantling that which promotes solutions that inflict pain and trauma on others - against models that departmentalized justice when it requires hybridity and holistic frameworks. Discourse on these topics is also captured on talk radio podcasts indexed on justice unplugged.
He is also the author of An Other’s Mind (2011).

Meet Karen Dukess, author of The Last Book Party, online on Zoom Thursday, June 11 @ 7pm.
Join native Larchmont resident and Mamaroneck High School graduate, Karen Dukess, as she discusses her debut novel The Last Book Party. Dukess can sometimes be seen writing at both the Mamaroneck Public Library and the Larchmont Public Library! The Last Book Party is a propulsive tale of ambition and romance, set in the publishing world of 1980’s New York and the timeless beaches of Cape Cod.
Karen Dukess has a work history as eclectic as her taste in books. She has been a tour guide in the former Soviet Union, a newspaper reporter in Florida, a magazine publisher in Russia and, for nearly a decade, a speechwriter on gender equality for the United Nations Development Programme. She has blogged on raising boys for The Huffington Post and written book reviews for USA Today. She has a degree in Russian Studies from Brown University and a Master’s in Journalism from Columbia University. She lives with her family near New York City and spends as much time as possible in Truro on Cape Cod. The Last Book Party, which the New York Times called “a spare, bittersweet page-turner,” is her debut novel.
This event is co-sponsored by the Larchmont Public Library.
