Announcement: Folk Arts Fellowship Recipient

Late last year, news leaked that Mark Binder (aka Izzy Abrahmson) had been awarded a Folk Arts Fellowship for his work on The Village Life series of books and stories.

The Fellowship recognizes the work that Binder has done over the past 30 years, beginning as an editor of The Rhode Island Jewish Herald, through the publication of The Village Life books, and his many years of performing as a storyteller for diverse audiences of all ages in the United States and around the world.

"I want to thank the citizens of Rhode Island for their support," Mark said at a recent appearance. "The Ocean State is a great place to live, work, and come home to."
