Woody Guthrie’s daughter and President of Woody Guthrie Publications, Nora Guthrie, hosts a multimedia pro­gram highlight­ing the artistic impacts of her father Woody’s relationship with his Jewish mother-in-law, Yiddish poet Aliza Greenblatt. Ms. Guthrie will pres­ent photographs, music—including excerpts from the Klezmatics’ Wonder Wheel and Happy Joyous Hanukkah—writings, and artwork that illuminate that extraordinary personal and creative relationship.


Nora Guthrie graduated from NYU Tisch School of the Arts in 1971. Following a successful career in modern dance Nora began working with her father’s materials in 1992. Based on her intimate connection to her father’s ideas and ideals, Nora brings a refreshing interpretation of his work and a new understanding of his legacy.
