Eat/Pray/Learn First Friday Event:
The dinner and book discussion is March 9.
For the 75th anniversary of its premiere―the incredible story of how Casablanca was made and why it remains the most beloved of Hollywood films.
We’ll Always Have Casablanca is celebrated film historian Noah Isenberg’s rich account of this most beloved movie’s origins. Isenberg reveals the myths and realities behind Casablanca’s production, exploring the transformation of the unproduced stage play into the classic screenplay, the controversial casting decisions, the battles with Production Code censors, and the effect of the war’s progress on the movie’s reception. Isenberg particularly focuses on the central role refugees from Hitler’s Europe played in the production (nearly all of the actors and actresses cast in Casablanca were immigrants).
Join us on Friday evening March 9 as we welcome Shabbat, enjoy a delicious dairy dinner, and discover local author, Noah Isenberg who will discuss his recent publication—We’ll Always Have Casablanca.
Services at 6:00 pm followed by dinner—the Book talk will begin at 7:50. There will be supervised activities for children during the Book Talk. This program is in collaboration with the JCC of Mid-Westchester’s Books on Tour. Books are available for purchase at $18.00.
