Fun for the whole family! Klez4Kidz features a dramatic reading, live music and projected illustrations from the critically-acclaimed children's book, The Kugel Valley Klezmer Band
by Joan Betty Stuchner (http://joanbettystuchner.blogspot.com
). A little girl named Shira loves the fiddle, but is she good enough to play with her papa's band? Join narrator Riva Ginsburg and members of Klezmer Company Orchestra (http://www.klezmercompany.com/
) as they bring the charming story to life. Bring your blankets to sit on the floor, and get ready to dance to the musical interludes!
This is the second year that the local AJL chapter has helped FAU to plan a children's literary/klezmer event for their Jewish Kultur Festival. In 2009, the Klezmer Company Orchestra brought to life the book Mendel's Accordian
by Heidi Smith Hyde. This year's performance, at a new, more convenient time, promises to be even better!
This event is co-sponsored by the South Florida Association of Jewish Libraries, www.sfajl.org
