TODAY! Yiddish in the Nutshell: The Stories and Music that Shaped the Wild Things

The library will swell with the traditional sounds of Yiddish song and the Klezmer clarinet on Sunday at 3pm. Customers of all ages will discover songs and stories which will bring Maurice Sendak's childhood neighborhood, family, and influences on his unforgettable characters into new focus. Susan Leviton, renowned Yiddish singer and storyteller will have props on hand for youngsters' participation, and translations will make every song fully accessible. Klezmer clarinet will be performed by Ken Ulansey.

No registration is required. The program will be held on the 2nd Floor in the Children's Room.

This program is supported in part by the Pennsylvania Humanities Council, the Federal-State Partner of the National Endwoment for the Humanities.

Additional support provided by the Barbash Family Fund, the Congress of Secular Jewish Organizations and individual donors.
