Join Anita Norich in conversation with Joseph Berger about about Jewish refugees in America, female authors, Yiddish novels, translation and more to celebrate the launch of Professor Norichs translation of Kadya Molodovskys novel. |
Rivke Zilberg, a 20-year-old Jewish woman, arrives in New York shortly after the Nazi invasion of Poland, her home country. In this fictionalized journal originally published in Yiddish, author Kadya Molodovsky provides keen insight into the day-to-day activities of the large immigrant Jewish community of New York. By depicting one woman's struggles as a Jewish refugee in the US during WWII, Molodovsky points readers to the social, political, and cultural tensions of that time and place. A reception and book signing will follow the program.
A limited number of seats are available for this event; reservations are required.
