Space is Still Available for Book Chat with Harlan Coben


LIVINGSTON, NJ — Nearly 500 people, including current and past Livingston residents of all ages, have already signed up for the Livingston Education Foundation’s (LEF) first town-wide book club, featuring Livingston High School (LHS) Class of 1980 alumnus Harlan Coben to discuss his newest mystery novel, “Don’t Let Go.”

On behalf of the LEF, Collins Elementary School teacher and LHS Class of 1990 alumna Greer Gelman attended Monday’s Livingston Township Council meeting to announce that space is still available for the Jan. 22 event at LHS and to invite the mayor and council members to attend.

“I’m really excited about the support from the community—the response from the community has been amazing,” she said. “We have senior citizens who have responded, we have new moms in town who have responded, we have LHS graduates, people who graduated with Harlan Coben who have responded—so we really have quite a range of guests coming.”

Over the last year, the LEF board has been discussing ways to revitalize the organization and remind residents that the LEF is designed to support Livingston Public Schools to create an avenue for alumni to keep a connection to the town.

In order to celebrate the partnership between the community and the schools, Gelman had the idea to invite Coben to lead a discussion on his new book.

“A lot of the events, if you’ve ever read one of Mr. Coben’s books, are inspired by places in and around Livingston—in this one, particularly, the Nike base at Riker Hill Art Park,” said Gelman. “It’s really fun to read and see all the places that we know. So we’re hoping to get more members of the community to come.”

Gelman encouraged anyone who has not registered to do so as soon as possible by contacting her at
