Book Signing in conjunction with the screening of Welcome to Kutsher’s: The Last Catskills Resort.
Kutsher’s Country Club was the last surviving Jewish resort in the Catskills, a family-owned and operated resort for over 100 years. This award-winning documentary captures a last glimpse of a lost world as it disappears before our eyes. The Catskills resorts were not only a Jewish refuge and family vacation paradise, they also gave birth to American stand-up comedy, an NBA All-Star tradition, and all-inclusive resorts.
Screening followed by Q&A with comedian Scott Blakeman and Marisa Scheinfeld
Marisa Scheinfeld, author of the newly published The Borscht Belt: Revisiting the Remains of America’s Jewish Vacationland, will join the film screening conversation. Her book will be available for sale & signing.
