Join author Joanne Oppenheim for a reading of her new children’s book The Knish War on Rivington Street.

Benny and his family live on the Lower East Side and sell baked knishes. When the Tisches move in across the street with their fried knishes a knish competisch ensues: prices drop, stores expand, Benny and his young counterpart Solly carry signs, and each proprietor hires musicians. The noise level becomes so bad that the mayor gets involved.

Come hear this joyful story of people who take pride in their own work, but eventually realize a fundamental truth: there’s no such thing as too many knishes.

Free! Drop in.
