In the tiny village of Anatevka, food was very simple: As Tevye the Milkman says in the film version of Fiddler on the Roof, “When a poor man eats a chicken, one of them is sick.”

But the Charleston JCC this Saturday is putting out a fancier spread for a Bookfest lecture by the author of The Worlds of Sholem Aleichem: The Remarkable Life and Aftermath of the Man Who Created Tevye. Jeremy Dauber’s 8 p.m. talk will be followed by a Russian café-inspired reception featuring babka, macaroons, rugelach, chocolate-covered apricots, tea with preserves, coffee and wine.

Tickets to the event are $10 for JCC members; $14 for non-members. Call 571-6565 for more information.
