Join us for the first "Stories of Exile" Reading Group with a discussion of On the Landing: Stories of Yenta Mash. Naomi Brenner from The Ohio State University will co-facilitate the book discussion.

The Bexley Public Library has been selected as a participating library for the Yiddish Book Center's "Stories of Exile" Reading Groups for Public Libraries for 2023. We will begin this year-long series with a discussion of On the Landing: Stories of Yenta Mash. Naomi Brenner, Associate Professor in the Department of Near Eastern and South Asian Languages and Cultures at The Ohio State University, will co-facilitate the book discussion to provide cultural and historical contexts for these stories translated from Yiddish. Registration is required; those who are registered for the reading group will receive a copy of On the Landing to read and return to the library after the book discussion.

About the reading group:

The Yiddish Book Center’s “Stories of Exile” Reading Groups for Public Libraries is 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 Yiddish Book Center’s “Stories of Exile” Reading Groups for Public Libraries is made possible by a gift from Sharon Karmazin.

About the branch

Bexley Public Library was founded in 1924 and first housed in Bexley High School, now Montrose Elementary School. The present building opened in 1929 and was designed by architects O.C. Miller and R.R. Reeves who drew upon French and Italian architecture from the 17th century for the design.

The library is located at 2411 East Main Street, at the intersection of East Main Street and Cassady Avenue. Parking is available in our parking lot on Euclaire Avenue and in front of the library on Main Street. Main Street is a No Parking Tow Zone from 4:00-6:00 p.m. weekdays.
