Tulsa library to celebrate Jewish-American songwriters (USA)

A good deal of what we now call "The Great American Songbook" would probably not exist if it hadn't been for Jewish families immigrating to this country around the turn of the 20th century. Tulsa's Central Library will spend the next four weeks celebrating the work of some of America's finest songwriters with the exhibit "A Fine Romance: Jewish Songwriters, American Songs," opening Wednesday at the library, Fourth Street and Denver Avenue. The exhibit - curated by David Lehman and developed by Nextbook Inc., a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting Jewish literature, culture and ideas, and the American Library Association Public Programs Office - focuses on the period from 1910 to 1965
