Gift Idea for a Genealogist - 97 Orchard Street by Jane Zigelman
While visiting the Lower East Side Tenement Museum, this book jumped off the gift shop table and into my arms. You can read about it on the museum website. The sub title of 97 Orchard Street is yummy: An Edible History of Five Immigrant Families In One New York Tenement.
Coincidentally, our community newsletter announced that Jane Zigelman, the author, will be visiting Temple Israel in Portsmouth, New Hampshire on Sunday, November 21st at 12 Noon. Come and meet the author and a visit a synagogue established over 100 years ago. How much better can it get? Books, immigrants, food and history all rolled together. I love it.
The visit is co-sponsored by our locally owned and operated River Run Bookstore, through which you can pre-order a signed copy. More details can be found in the flier below or through the River Run Bookstore website.
