Book Club
at the Lexington Senior Center

seniorsOn March 7 in honor of Women’s History Month, Carolyn’s Corner Book Club will turn to Lilac Girlsby by Martha Hall Kelly. Inspired by the life of a real World War II heroine, this debut novel reveals a story of love, redemption and secrets that were hidden for decades. New York socialite Caroline Ferriday has her hands full with her post at the French consulate and a new relationship on the horizon. But Caroline’s world is forever changed when Hitler’s army invades Poland in September 1939—and then sets its sights on France.An ocean away from Caroline, Kasia Kuzmerick, a Polish teenager, senses her carefree youth disappearing as she is drawn deeper into her role as courier for the underground resistance movement. In a tense atmosphere of watchful eyes and suspecting neighbors, one false move can have dire consequences. For the ambitious young German doctor, Herta Oberheuser, an ad for a government medical position seems her ticket out of a desolate life. Oncehired, though, she finds herself trapped in a male-dominated realm of Nazi secrets and power.The lives of these three women are set on a collision course when the unthinkable happens and Kasia is sent to Ravensbruck, the notorious Nazi concentration camp for women. Their stories cross continents—from New York to Paris, Germany, and Poland—as Caroline and Kasia strive to bring justice to those whom history has forgotten.

 

Osteoporosis & Exercising: 4 Rules to Follow

  1. Strengthen Your Muscles: Workouts should revolve around functional movements like squats, lunges, and pushups. It can also incorporate free weight exercises, exercise bands, machines, or your own body weight.
  2. Use as Much Impact as You Can Tolerate: This applies to weight-bearing aerobic activities because it directly affects the bones in your legs, hips, and lower spine. Start with a low-impact exercise like the elliptical.
  3. Allow your body enough time to heal: Allow at least one full day between high-impact exercise and then gradually increase the number of workouts each week.
  4. Avoid Forward Bends and Twists: These movements can strain the spine and can create compression between the vertebrae and trigger “cascade of fractures.” Avoid any type of exercises that involve bending forward or twisting.
