Barbara J. Ostfeld with the Jewish Book Festival

November 15 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

$20

In Cat­bird: The Bal­lad of Bar­bi Prim, the world meets an insight­ful, opin­ion­at­ed 8-year-old who’s already tak­en a few steps toward becom­ing a pio­neer — but also a shad­ow of her quirky self. Although she’s cor­rod­ed — some­times lit­er­al­ly — by a tox­ic, but famil­iar social atmos­phere, her love of singing pro­pels her to accomplish something extraordinary. A fam­i­ly cri­sis expos­es old and endur­ing wounds, but she begins to res­cue her­self — by dili­gent­ly going to ther­a­py — and embarks on an imper­fect but per­pet­u­al meta­mor­pho­sis becom­ing the well-coiffed hero­ine of her own story. This is Barbara’s true-life story of cracking through a stained glass ceil­ing at age twen­ty-two to become the first woman ordained as a can­tor in 3,000 years of Jew­ish his­to­ry.
