Join us for a discussion of On the Landing: Stories by Yenta Mash, translated by Ellen Cassedy. We’ll focus on “Resting Place,” about Jewish deportees’ arrival in Siberia, and “At the Western Wall,” about a grandmother’s experience in her new country of Israel.
This program will take place at the Highland Park Community Center (220 S. 6th 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.
