BECAUSE IT'S MY DREAM - Wyman Brent's library in Lithuania

Article about Wyman Brent's Vilnius Jewish Public Library

Thanks to the International Al Jolson Society, the library in Jolson's home country has all of Jolson's films and music on the shelves. Here is the story behind its founding (the link will refer you to our website www.aj-images.com).

On a personal note, filmmaker Andrea Oberheiden and Wyman Brent met because of Andrea's and Jens' documentary AL JOLSON AND THE JAZZ SINGER which Mr. Brent wanted to obtain for his library. Two years later, Wyman and Andrea got married and another year later, they welcomed their son Glenn Jolson Brent.
