The Osborn Launches WellSpring Series on Oct. 19 with Fiona Davis

Launching the Fall season of its WellSpring Series, The Osborn will host acclaimed author Fiona Davis discussing and reading from her glamorous new novel, The Spectacular, on Thursday, October 19 at 7:30 p.m. Free and open to the public, this event will be held in The Osborn’s Auditorium at 101 Theall Road in Rye.

“Our WellSpring program offers an integrated approach to well-being that inspires everyone in our community to enjoy life to the fullest,” said The Osborn’s President and CEO, Matthew G. Anderson. “This includes enriching literary and cultural experiences such as the Fiona Davis evening, which we invite everyone to share.”

In The Spectacular, Fiona Davis brings readers behind the shimmering gold curtain of one of the most famous stages in the world, Radio City Music Hall, as a talented young dancer in the 1950s defies society’s (and her family’s) expectations when she joins the Rockettes. Davis is the New York Times bestselling author of seven historical fiction novels set in iconic New York City buildings, including The Magnolia Palace, The Address, and The Lions of Fifth Avenue, which was a Good Morning America book club pick. She first came to New York as an actress but fell in love with writing after getting a master’s degree at Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism.

The Osborn’s WellSpring program engages seven dimensions that enrich our lives: intellectual, social, physical, environmental, occupational, emotional, and spiritual. At The Osborn, residents can stay fit in exercise classes, the fitness center, the indoor pool, or walking on trails through its bucolic 56-acre arboretum campus. They also can participate in traditional religious services and meditation workshops, paint in art studio or browse in the three libraries, see films and live performances, and enjoy an abundance of social and cultural events.

With the Fall 2023 WellSpring Series, The Osborn opens its doors to the wider community to share three engaging events. In addition to The Spectacular by Fiona Davis on Oct. 19, The Osborn WellSpring Series will present the Purchase Dance Company on Nov. 18 and Christina Baker Kline, author of The Exiles, on Dec. 5.

To reserve a seat to see Fiona Davis, please email RSVP@theosborn.org or call 914-925-8218.
