Claverack Free Library celebrates local author Enid Futterman
and our patrons who geek chocolate!
“A beautifully poetic and haunting novella. With humor, compassion and bravery, Futterman reveals much about love, yearning and all kinds of human hunger.” —Henry Jaglom, San Francisco Chronicle
”With the compression of poetry and the candor of memoir, Futterman pens a modern fable in Bittersweet Journey, infusing her archetypal hungry woman with yearnings at once specific and resonant, uncloseting the secret of eating that is every girl-child’s inner wagging finger.” —Laurie Stone, Village Voice
Enjoy an indulgent afternoon devoted to the sensual pleasures of love and chocolate. Vasilow’s, The Chocolate Bar, Olde Hudson and HR Zeppelin will provide samples of artisanal chocolate bars and chocolates.
This is a program for adults. Seating is limited.
Please call the library at 851-7120 to reserve a seat.
FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO TOLD US YOU GEEK CHOCOLATE, THIS ONE IS FOR YOU!
