Remembering Ruth by Teaneck author Judy Eichinger

Remembering RuthOn June 12, at 7:00 PM, Teaneck author Judy Eichinger will read from her recently published memoir of childhood sibling loss.

Judy Eichinger was two and a half when her beloved sister Ruth was born with one kidney shriveled and the other severely damaged. She died at age fifteen. For many years, Judy couldn't mention Ruth's name or talk about her loss. Events finally forced her to confront her feelings and work through her grief, anger, and loneliness. This book movingly captures, moment to moment, that journey from a life of despair to one of fulfillment--in the hope of helping others who lost a sibling growing up.

There will be a discussion, and Judy will sign books. Refreshments will be served. The program will be held at the auditorium. Teaneck Library is located at 840 Teaneck Road, Teaneck, NJ 07666.

Gallery Exhibit May 2018

During the month of May 2018, the Teaneck Library Gallery is hosting two exhibits.

Paul Elson's exhibit consists of works on canvas, some very large, which are a combination of painting and photography. The results of a multi-step process of repeated painting and digital manipulation, are sublime images evoking traditional Asian ink paintings and subjects. His work can be seen on the main gallery's walls

Janet Schulz's photo collection of the 1927 construction of The George Washington Bridge can be seen in the gallery's glass cases. The twenty B&W photographs depict the grand undertaking of building the bridge. Schulz's grandfather, Teaneck Police Lieutenant Joseph Bublitz, gave them to her to help illustrate a report when she was a Teaneck high school student.  The photographer's name remain a mystery, yet the historical value is clearly evident.
