Also starring Doris Roberts (TV's EVERYBODY LOVES RAYMOND), Cheryl Hines (TV's CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM), and Larry Miller (THE PRINCESS DIARIES).

KOH Fiction Book Club - November 15th at 7 p.m. Valla Hoffman will be leading a discussion of the book "Siegfried Follies" by Richard Alther:

SIEGFRIED FOLLIES is the 30-year story of an unlikely pairing of two orphan boys, a German and a Jew, who together survive the loss of family, witness atrocities, and struggle for identity as adults. Blond, blue-eyed Franz, a Hitler youth, in fleeing his Nazi home as bombs destroy Munich, saves a filthy, speechless boy thrown from a train. At first squatting in an opera house cellar, they soon make a proper home for themselves. Despite Franz pursuing the American dream while J ventures from an Israeli kibbutz to New York City as a Hebrew storyteller and puppeteer, they forge a remarkable brotherhood. Both defying and affirming their past, their story is also of bonds broken, the worst kind of betrayal, tragedy, forgiveness, and redemption.
