Jenny’s Picks – November 9

1) Meet fine artist Teddy Draper Jr.; his father worked as a Navajo “code talker.” During “Legacy of the Navajo Code Talkers,” 6:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Bartholomew County Public Library, 536 Fifth St. in Columbus, Draper Jr. will speak about his father’s experiences during World War II. Information:

2) I have a soft spot in my heart for the 1940s. Perhaps it’s my love of shoulder pads and big eyebrows. If you appreciate the ’40s as well, or if you want a healthy dose of nostalgia for America’s past, get to know the Ladies for Liberty, a singing troupe dedicated to performing the Andrews Sisters’ style of music. The Ladies perform 6 p.m. Nov. 16, Bartholomew County Public Library. Pick up free tickets at the library or at Mill Race Center. Information:
