The library, along with Purdue University North Central Odyssey Arts and Cultural Events and the Irving Levin Jewish Cultural Fund of Sinai Temple will present a Jewish Film Festival, Sunday, March 8 at 1:30 pm. Theodore Bikel: In the Shoes of Sholom Alleichem (2014) presents the portraits of two noted icons--Sholom Aleichem and Theodore Bikel, bringing together Bikel's master performances with Aleichem's life and work. Aleichem is considered a pioneer of modern Jewish literature and Bikel's career spans more than 150 screen roles plus stage and musical productions. Room 514 is a tense and ambitious drama which tells the story of a female Israeli soldier who is ordered to interrogate an elite Israeli officer who is alleged to have abused a Palestinian family. Both films are unrated. The film festival is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served during the break between films.

Pat Klewer will review Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline. Between 1854 and 1929, so-called orphan trains ran regularly from the cities of the East Coast to the farmlands of the Midwest, carrying thousands of abandoned children whose fates would be determined by luck and chance. This is the story of one child. As a young Irish immigrant, Vivian Daly was sent from New York City to an uncertain future a world away. Returning east later in life, Vivian leads a quiet, peaceful existence on the coast of Maine. But in her attic, hidden in trunks, are reminders of a turbulent past. The story is set between contemporary Maine and Depression-era Minnesota and is a powerful tale of upheaval and resilience, second chances, and unexpected friendship. The Westchester Public Library will host this review Thursday, March 19 at 2:00 pm at the Westchester Township Historical Museum in Chesterton.
Bookmarks: Orphan Train - 2:00 pm
