A Fine Romance: Jewish Songwriters, American Songs, 1910-1965

A traveling exhibition is coming to Trexler Library on November 4,  and will be on display in the main concourse on level A of the library until December 15.  In this exhibit, curated by essayist and poet David Lehman, and illustrated with colorful posters from Broadway shows and photographs of composers, singers, and the casts of hit musicals and films, we learn about the lives and works of Irving Berlin, George and Ira Gershwin, Harold Arlen, Jerome Kern, and a host of other Jewish songwriters who wove the American songbook deep into the fabric of American culture.
