Morton’s Fall Fundraising Cruise this year features a wine and cheese tasting and live jazz!
Please call 845-876-2903 to RSVP
Sponsorships are still available.
We are approaching the season of becoming internal. And Morton has an activity for that. Four upcoming Sunday afternoons at Morton will heat up your mind — in a good way! Please join us for The Analyst in the Artist’s Studio, a series of presentations starting October 4th on how the visual arts had an influence upon Freud’s discovery of the unconscious, which led to greater understanding of the human subject.
The presenters are analysts Mark Stafford and Anna McLellan of The Westchester Institute and Après-Coup Psychoanalytic Association. This is sure to be a series which will offer beautiful images, insight, and stimulating conversation. Please scroll down to learn more.
Banned Books Week September 29, 2015
Every year the American Library Association (ALA), and libraries around the country, celebrate intellectual freedom and the freedom to read what we choose. In many repressive countries literature is censored, and government and state-run institutions control the ideas their citizens can be exposed to. Fortunately in America, we do not allow this kind of thought control, and leave it to each citizen to decide what is right for him/herself. We believe that an informed citizenry can choose wisely and think critically and engage in self-governance through democratic process. We also believe that people can choose their own ideas, rather than be coerced by others. Even so, in the United States of America there are still attempts each year by some individuals – and groups- to control others’ access to literature and information.
