Hoboken Historical Museum,
1301 Hudson St.,
Acclaimed poet and critic David Lehman will visit the Museum on Sunday, Dec. 13 at 4 pm, to discuss his latest book: "Sinatra's Century: One Hundred Notes on the Man and His World," a series of short meditations on the man, his music and his larger-than-life story. The author of the award-winning A Fine Romance: Jewish Songwriters, American Songs, Lehman devotes each of these short pieces to one facet of the Sinatra story—from the singer’s origins on the streets of Hoboken, to his emergence as “The Voice” in the 1940s, to the wild ebb and flow of his career in the decades that followed. With a wordsmith’s turn of phrase, and a lifelong affection for the singer and the man, Lehman offers a wide-ranging appreciation of Sinatra’s incomparable life and career.
