Attendees will also hear “Christmas Is a Sad Season for the Poor,” by John Cheever, read by Bernie Sheredy.  The stories take place in a police station and an apartment building in New York City on Christmas Eve.  Judy McMahon is the host of The Hungry Ear.  For further information, call the Library at 607-778-6451.
