Drawing from the Yiddish Book Center’s recently published "2020 Pakn Treger Digital Translation Issue: Yiddish Comes to America," editors Mindl Cohen and Lisa Newman will talk about the Yiddish writers whose work appears in translation and how the selected works speak to—and inform—our understanding of this year’s Decade of Discovery theme, Yiddish in America: Cultural Encounters. The anthology includes newly translated works; excerpts of some of the translations will be read by actors and translators. The program will include a brief Q&A with Mindl Cohen.
This live event will be presented via Zoom and will stream live on the Yiddish Book Center's Facebook page. Space is limited. If you’d like to reserve a virtual seat in the Zoom audience—which will allow you to submit questions—registration is required.
