2:00pm | Town Hall Theater
GennaRose Nethercott brings the uncanny world of her novel Thistlefoot to life—animated by a series of hand built, hand-cranked shadow panoramas and ornate puppetry. A sweeping fantasy illuminated by Jewish myth and adorned with lyrical prose as tantalizing and sweet as briar berries. The story on which this performance is based follows siblings reunited after receiving a mysterious inheritance and was named one of the best books of the year by NPR and The Wall Street Journal.
