In a speech Monday at a fundraiser for Hillary Clinton in New York City, former president Bill Clinton talked about Scattered Books, the "tiny bookstore" in Chappaqua, N.Y., and "how it's a special place made by the hard work of the woman who owns it, Laura Schaefer (a Briarcliff Manor resident); and an essay that her 13-year-old son Jason wrote about the first presidential debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump," the Chappaqua Patch reported. "Clinton said it was 'breathtaking,' better than anything most 35-year-olds could write. And Clinton shared the boy's conclusion that it is important for his wife to win the presidential election in November because she focuses on people's abilities and not on their disabilities." (Bookstore comments start around the 1:50 mark in this clip.)
