Women writers focus of Yiddish Book Center weekend program

The Yiddish Book Center will present “Yiddish Women Writers Reclaimed,” a three-day program for adult learners, will take place at the Center in Amherst, Massachusetts May 4–6. The weekend program, led by Professor Anita Norich of the University of Michigan, will bring to light the immense scope and talent of these outstanding modern Jewish writers, such as Kadya Molodovsky, an award-winning poet, teacher, and editor; Anna Margolin, an influential member of the Yiddish literati in New York; and Celia Dropkin, best known for her frank depictions of love, eroticism, and death. The program includes four lectures, a film screening, a tour of the Yiddish Book Center’s collections and exhibits, kosher meals, and lots of conversation.

Pre-registration is required and space is limited. To learn more and to register, visit yiddishbookcenter.org/women-writers.
