Join us for a discussion of The Glatstein Chronicles by Jacob Glatstein, edited by Ruth Wisse, translated by Maier Deshell and Norbert Guterman. We’ll focus on Book One, in which a Jewish American writer travels home to Poland to visit his dying mother in the mid-1930s.
This program will take place at Highland Park Conservative Temple (201 S. 3rd Ave., Highland Park).
The Yiddish Book Center‘s “Stories of Exile” Reading Groups for Public Libraries is a reading and discussion program to engage adults in thinking about experiences of displacement, migration, and diaspora. In this program, librarians organize reading groups to discuss three books of Yiddish literature in translation, and one book related to the experience of a community served by their library.
The Yiddish Book Center’s “Stories of Exile” Reading Groups for Public Libraries is made possible by a gift from Sharon Karmazin.
