Book Discussion

April 30, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

“Outwitting History” is Aaron Lansky’s memoir about rescuing Yiddish books from dumpsters, basements, attics and other forgotten places and creating the National Yiddish Book Center in Amherst, Mass. The book has been described as a “marvelous yarn,” (NY Post), “incredible, inspiring, important” (Library Journal), and “as stirring as it is geshmak (delectable)” (Cynthia Ozick). Beth Mintz will lead discussion of this terrific book on Tues., April 30, 7:30-9 p.m. in the library (which has 2 copies for borrowing, or find your own). Sponsored by the library committee, and especially recommended as an introduction to a potential book discussion series of Yiddish fiction (in translation) this summer and as preparation for Henny Lewin’s visit on May 5. (A former OZ member and respected teacher of Hebrew and Yiddish at UVM, Henny became the first Goldfarb Chair and Yiddish scholar at the Yiddish Book Center.)
