To honor the melding of two holidays — Thanksgiving and Hanukkah — the Kramoris Gallery in Sag Harbor will host a Thanksgiving-akuh Festival, a most unusual book reading and signing from the singular book “Eating Delancey: A Celebration of Jewish Food” by Aaron Rezny and Jordan Schaps.
The event, on Sunday, November 26, from 2 to 5 p.m., will feature a reading from the book and signing by Erica Kalick, author and founder of the award-winning Brooklyn bakery, Erica’s Rugelach & Baking, Co. Kalick will give her own stand-up, comedic spin on how her company came to be included in the book, along with other Jewish luminaries such as Joan Rivers, Itzhak Perlman, Milton Glaser and Lou Reed, to name just a few.
The reading, personal stories and jokes from Kalick begin at 3 p.m. On either side will be live music by guitar virtuoso Robert Secrist, who will also be on hand to dazzle with his virtuosity on a very rare guitar by famed luthier Thomas Humphrey. He will also sign CDs, including his brand-new recording “Songs Without Words.” The event will feature food fare from the Jewish diaspora including sweets from Erica’s Rugelach & Baking, Co., as well as some surprises.
Kramoris Gallery is at 41 Main Street in Sag Harbor. Visit kramorisgallery.com for details.
