Truman Capote’s “The Thanksgiving Visitor”

November 18, 2023 @ 5:00 pm

The Lewes Public Library Spoken Word Society presents Suzanne Savoy and Jack Herholdt in a live reading of “The Thanksgiving Visitor” by Truman Capote. Savoy and Herboldt first performed this piece online at the library in 2020 and are here again to share their remarkable gifts of story-telling to kick off the holiday season.

Nine-year-old Buddy has a problem. Every day, he gets stopped on the way to school by Odd Henderson, who calls Buddy a sissy, pins him to the ground and rubs burrs into his head. Miss Sook, Buddy’s older cousin and best friend, invites Odd to her big Thanksgiving dinner, where important lessons await both Odd and Buddy.

“The Thanksgiving Visitor” was first published in McCall’s Magazine in 1967, and is a companion piece to “A Christmas Memory”, which will Savoy and Herboldt will perform at the Library on Saturday, December 16, 2023.

Suzanne and Jack are familiar presences on the stage in New York City and in television, film, and video. Suzanne appeared regularly in Cinemax’s The Knick and in Better Call Saul (AMC), House of Cards (HBO) and For Life (AMC), and she tours nationally in her one-woman original show Je Christine. Jack was in the award-winning video series Celebrity Ghost Stories and in the television series It’s Quarantine with Vanessa Charbonne. Both Suzanne and Jack hail originally from Delaware.
