Join us on Zoom for a virtual session of In the Land of the Postscript by Chava Rosenfarb. Matt Johnson, Senior Lecturer, Department of Germanic Languages and Literatures, and Director of Yiddish and Ashkenazic Studies 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 to receive the Zoom link. Participants in Central Ohio who are registered for the reading group will receive a copy of In the Land of the Postscript to read and return to the library after the book discussion. In the Land of the Postscript is also accessible on Hoopla for participants outside of Central Ohio.
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 continued this year-long series with an in person discussion on October 16th of In the Land of the Postscript, but we're offering a virtual session as well due to patron feedback.
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.
