How To Earn Money in Retirement” June 2 at 7 pm with Nancy Collamer at North Chatham Free Library via Zoom

Whether you are retired already or planning to retire, you may be interested in a way to earn money when you no longer have a steady paycheck. A nationally known presenter, Nancy Collamer, a recognized expert on career change and the writer of a monthly blog for the PBS site NextAvenue.org and Forbes.com, will lead an interactive ZOOM session to get you started on planning a “second career.”

This session is the first in the library’s new series “Creating a Vibrant Retirement,” funded in part by the Fund for Columbia County, a fund of the Berkshire Taconic Foundation. Subsequent retirement sessions to be held in the fall (most likely also on ZOOM) are “Rewire When You Retire,” “Be Your Own Health Care Advocate” and two separate sessions on your home in retirement: “ Leaving or Staying In Your Home When You Retire: Options to Consider” and “Re-creating Your Home for a Vibrant Retirement.”

The North Chatham Free Library is honored to present distinguished artist, Victor Juhasz, known nationally for his humorous caricatures and illustrations, on Sunday, June 7, 3 p.m. via zoom. In It’s Not Funny Anymore: Satirical Illustration in an Age of Hostile Absurdity. Mr. Juhasz will describe the process, as well as the challenges and limitations, of creating images of political satire and caricature in contemporary American culture, where current reality seems to trump (no pun intended) any fiction in terms of absurdity.

Victor Juhasz is an award-winning illustrator and cartoonist, whose work is published regularly in Time, Rolling Stone, The Nation, and The American Prospect, among others.

A graduate of Parsons School of Design in New York City, he began illustrating for The New York Times while still a student. While caricature and humorous illustration comprise the main body of his work, his love of drawing has allowed him to cross over to other aspects of the profession as a children’s book illustrator, and as an artist both in the courtroom and for the US Air Force and USMC Art Programs where his work is part of their permanent collections.
