For the Love of Shmear

Featuring Russ & Daughters.

Mark Russ Federman and his family chronicle the legendary 100-year history of Russ & Daughters in an award-winning film festival favorite, The Sturgeon Queens. Timed to coincide with the store’s centennial celebration, the documentary traces four generations of Russ family history into what has become a New York City institution. The film vividly captures the Jewish entrepreneurial spirit and the rich immigrant history of an era.

Federman will show clips from the film, answer questions and sign copies of his book, Russ & Daughters: Reflections and Recipes from the House That Herring Built.

Bagels, cream cheese, smoked fish and sweets from Russ & Daughters.
