Literary Libations: Author Tim Federle Helps The Hudson Area Library Raise Funds

Amy Krzanik reports from Hudson. Tim Federle, whose big debut came onstage at the 2000 Super Bowl where he performed as a backup dancer for Christina Aguilera, never imagined he would go on to become a celebrated author. But the Broadway star-turned-writer is now penning his third cocktail book for adults, as well as his third children’s book. He told tales on these topics and others for the crowd at Cafe Le Perche this past Thursday, February 5 at Literary Libations, a fundraiser for the Hudson Area Library. Supporters were able to sample cocktails such as “Eeny, Martini, Miny, Mo,” “Are You There God? It’s Me, Margarita?” and “Ring Around the Rosé” from Federle’s two mixology books—Tequila Mockingbird: Cocktails with a Literary Twist and Hickory Daiquiri Dock: Cocktails with a Nursery Rhyme Twist. Spotty Dog owner Kelley Drahushuk was on hand to sell the two tomes, which Federle signed for guests. Twenty percent of the proceeds from book and drink sales went to support the Campaign for the new Hudson Area Library. Above, the author is flanked by friends Brian Hill and Neil Bartram.
