    Contact: Tom Lawrence   (845) 485-3445 x3306   administration@poklib.org
   

Set almost entirely in a Chinese restaurant, Dreaming of a Jewish Christmas is an offbeat, irreverent musical documentary that tells the story of a group of Jewish songwriters, including Irving Berlin, Mel Tormé, Jay Livingston, Ray Evans, Gloria Shayne Baker and Johnny Marks, who wrote the soundtrack to Christianity’s most musical holiday. It’s an amazing tale of immigrant outsiders who became irreplaceable players in pop culture’s mainstream - a generation of songwriters who found in Christmas the perfect holiday in which to imagine a better world, and for at least one day a year, make us believe in it.  52 minutes

Book:  My Absolute Darling by Gabriel Tallent.  Gabriel Tallent writes with bravura more experienced authors can only envy. His debut story, stars 14 year-old Julia, called Turtle, lives with her paranoid, survivalist father in the wilds of Mendocino County. Their ruin of a house has boarded-up windows and “spindled wooden railings overgrown with climbing roses and poison oak.” If Turtle is that rose, then her father is the poison oak: his touch (and he touches Turtle) leads to trouble. But he’s taught his daughter to shoot and forage -- she can “decipher” the woods, even at night -- and those skills serve her well when she finally starts to free herself from his control.

We meet at Juan Murphy's Irish Pub and Mexican Grub 796 Main Street Poughkeepsie (Formerly The Dubliner).
