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.

Sponsored by the Yiddish Book Center.
Open to all adults and teens.
