A prix fixe menu available at Isles Deli, 6:30 p.m. 


November 12, 2009 at 6:30 p.m., author Patti Hoolihan will present "Launching Your Teen into Adulthood." Using this thoughtful guide, parents can help older teens confidently navigate the issues and developmental transitions that will inevitably arise as they prepare to leave home.
