Special to the Tribune-Star
You can take part in the season of romance at a turn-of-the-century tea hosted by Fortnightly Club members at 2 p.m. Saturday at the Fortnightly, 421 N. Sixth St., Vincennes.
The festive tea features vocalist Robin Smith, an IU doctoral candidate. Smith will sing the works of Tin Pan Alley songwriters Albert and Harry Von Tilzer: “A Bird in a Gilded Cage,” “Wait Till the Sun Shines Nellie,” “Put Your Arms Around Me Honey” and “Take Me Out to the Ballgame.”
On the menu will be sandwiches, cakes, crumpets and tea.
Tickets are $10 each and can be purchased at the library, 502 N. Seventh St., in Vincennes. The library’s phone number is (812) 886-4380.
The Fortnightly Club and the public library have worked together in support of culture and education for 121 years.
This event is being hosted as part of “A Fine Romance: Jewish Songwriters, American Songs, 1910-1965.” This traveling exhibit, located in the sun room of the main library, was developed by Nextbook Inc., a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting Jewish literature, culture and ideas, and the American Library Association Public Programs Office.
