TALK | So Cool, So Jewish: The Bronx Salon of Yiddish Poet Bertha Kling, with David Mazower
Yiddish Book Center
Amherst, MA
Share this event:

Sponsored by Carole & Lawrence Roth and Marsha & Patrick Autillo in loving memory of Carole and Marsha's father, Leo Kessler, on his 50th yahrzeit.

For several decades in the early twentieth century, Bertha Kling and her husband kept open house in the Bronx. As hip as Greenwich Village, cheaper than the Café Royal, and more heymish than either, the Klings' apartment was the place to hear the latest Yiddish literary gossip or news from Paris, Warsaw, Moscow, or Hollywood. In this illustrated talk, David Mazower uses rare family archives to explore this unique group of Bronx bohemians, whose ranks included writers Moyshe Nadir, Malka Lee, Peretz Hirshbein, and Esther Shumiatsher, musicians Lazar Weiner and Joseph and Lara Cherniavsky, puppeteer Zuni Maud, and the entire Sholem Aleichem family. David Mazower is bibliographer and editorial director at the Yiddish Book Center.
