Emmett Otter's 57th Street Bookstore Jug Band

"In the midst of grim news from every direction," Alex Houston, marketing director at Seminary Co-op Bookstores in Chicago, Ill., "wanted to share these 73 seconds of joy, brought to you by a few booksellers, some stringed instruments, a couple of sock puppets, and a shared fondness for Emmet Otter's Jug-Band Christmas, which was just brought back into print by Doubleday this October." The booksellers shared their enthusiasm and song with the community last weekend during an Emmet Otter-themed party at 57th Street Books.

On banjo is Jeff Deutsch, with Colin McDonald on mandolin and Ryan Boylan on guitar. Puppeteers are Alex Houston, Conor Bean and Josh Edwards.
