What do laughter and living with a legend have in common? Together, they form an entertaining and fascinating weekend of pop culture, April 27-28, at Congregation Shir Shalom. All are welcome to attend both events.
In a talk on Sunday, April 28, at 2 p.m., Jamie Bernstein, daughter of musical icon Leonard Bernstein, will offer rare insight into living with, and being shaped by, a flamboyant genius, as related in her 2018 autobiography, “Famous Father Girl: A Memoir of Growing Up Bernstein.” (“Famous Father Girl” is a nickname she was teased with in school.) Co-sponsored by Federation of Jewish Philanthropy of Upper Fairfield County, her talk is free and open to the public.
