We have two upcoming events in the KOH Library and Cultural Center this month that you won't want to miss!

On Sunday, December 11, 2011 at 2 p.m., we will be showing the film "Attention Aux Enfants!" . This is a documentary of the orphans and displaced children of the Shoah who were hidden in Montmorency (a suburb of Paris) during the Nazi occupation of France. For many years they refused to tell their stories of childhood, hidden from society, their separation from their families, and parents who were deported to death camps. The film has won several prizes and has been shown at film festivals in Paris, New York, and Atlanta. It is in French with English subtitles. We are privileged to have Margo Kaufman, who lived in two of these homes, and was responsible for translating this film into English. She will be leading a discussion and answering questions. Suggested donation of $5.00.

December 18th marks the first arts and crafts fair at KOH Library and Cultural Center. We will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The exhibitors will be featuring unique quality handmade crafts and fine arts, just in time for your holiday gift shopping. There will be something for everyone, including photo art, paintings, fused glass jewelry and art, tee shirts, and much more. Hot drinks and sweets for sale! This event is free to the public.

In addition to these events, we will have our monthly KOH Fiction Book Club meeting on December 13th. We will be choosing all of our books for 2012 at this meeting. We do know that to start 2012, our first book club meeting will be January 10, 2012 when we will welcome author, Linda Frank who will discuss her book "After the Auction" . This book is about a woman who glimpses a family treasure looted by the Nazis at an art auction and her quest for justice and restitution spanning three continents. Books will be for sale and the public is welcome to attend.

SAVE THE DATE!! - On Sunday, January 8, 2012, we are bringing the Bay Area Group "The Bridge Players" to perform music by Mendelssohn. In addition , this group of professional musicians will be presenting a commentary on Mendelssohn's life. Seating is limited and the cost is $15.00 per person. Advanced reservations are suggested.

I wish you all a very happy Hannukah and a happy, healthy 2012!
