Poet Marilyn Kallet reads from her book, One for Each Night: Chanukah Tales and Recipes, which she wrote for families, who may need ideas on what to share in lean times. The book features humorous stories about her mother and being Jewish in the deep south, along with tales about traditional Chanukah foods, and provides several recipes taken from her mother-in-law and others. In this program, we put the recipes to a test with a family of four Jewish women in Kansas City, including KCUR's own Linda Sher, and share poetry and food to mark the holiday.
