Please join the Friends of the Finkelstein Memorial Library on Sunday, September 22 at 2 pm in the Fielding Room for a presentation of “Irving Berlin: An American Institution.”
Back by popular demand, Lecturer Marty Schneit will delight us with photos, videos and behind the scenes stories about this great songwriter. During his lifetime, Berlin published over 1,500 popular songs, including such classics as I Hate to Get Up in the Morning, God Bless America, and White Christmas.
Light refreshments will be served. Admission is free, but Marty’s last presentation drew an overflow crowd (remember the Fred Astaire program). So be sure to reserve your seat(s) by calling the Friends telephone line at 845-290-8845.
