Over the last few weeks we have asked various Rye citizens – elected officials, city staff, community leaders and local authors – to read a story for the youngest citizens of Rye. Each day, we will share a new story.
Today, Suzanne Clary, president of the Jay Heritage Center, reads Cindy P Senning’s Emily’s Magic Words: Please, Thank You, and More. Clary told MyRye.com her neighbors think she lives in a magical house because the windows are filled with books but the true magic is that all the books were read by and belong to her two children.
Clary has lived in Rye for 27 years and her family’s current home is on Dogwood Lane. Her daughter Taryn is the family videographer.
