Come explore immigration experiences through the portal of Yiddish literature in translation and a novel by a local, award-winning contemporary immigrant writer.

Together we’ll discuss questions of identity, assimilation, language, cuisine, and generational change—topics as relevant today as they were one hundred years ago.

March: Motl the Cantor’s Son, by Sholem Aleichem
April: A Jewish Refugee in New York, by Kadya Molodowsky
May: Enemies, A Love Story, by Isaac Bashevis Singer
June: On Earth We’re Briefly Gorgeous, by Ocean Vuong

Sponsored by the Yiddish Book Center.
Open to all adults and teens.
Copies of the four books are available at the library. You’re invited to join the discussion!
