Judy Collins—she of the blonde hair, blue eyes and mellifluous voice—will appear at Books & Greetings, 276 Livingston Street in Northvale on Tuesday, July 13, at 7 PM to promote and sign copies of a children's book entitled Over the Rainbow, which has been published by Peter Yarrow (of Peter, Paul & Mary fame) and which includes a 3-track CD of tunes performed by Collins and paintings by Eric Puybaret.

Although Collins has recorded nearly every American songbook standard, she had not recorded Over the Rainbow until now! At her appearance, she will tell some of her personal story and sing some songs. She has included Over the Rainbow as the opening track of her latest album, Paradise. On it she duets with Joan Baez and Stephen Stills.

Collins is finishing a book about the 1960s, which will be released by Random House.

Attendance at the book signing is free, but the book must be purchased at the store.
