"Stories of Exile" Reading Group from The Yiddish Book Center

"Stories of Exile" Reading Group from The Yiddish Book Center

Seymour Public Library is excited to participate in The Yiddish Bok Center's "Stories of Exile" Reading Groups for Public Libraries, a reading and discussion program to engage teens and 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 book discussed on March 5th will be "The Gladstein Chronicles" by Jacob Glatstein. In 1934 before World War II Jacob Glatstein, born in Lublin Poland, traveled from his current home in New York City back to Poland to visit his dying mother. He used this experience as the basis for two semi-autographical novellas known as "The Glatstein Chronicles" Selections from this work will be discussed.

To register for this free discussion series or for more information, please email sgarvey@biblio.org or call 203-888-3903.

This series is made possible due to support from The Yiddish Book Center. The Yiddish Book Center's "Stories of Exile" Reading Groups for Public Libraries is made possible by a gift from Sharon Karmazin.
