City: New York

Additional Notes:
The Forwards published fiction is an artistic trove. For every Isaac Bashevis Singer—who contributed to the Forward for over 50 years—several important writers, many of them women, remained untranslated and unknown. Now, in Have I Got a Story for You: More Than a Century of Fiction from the Forward edited by Ezra Glinter, 42 Yiddish-language stories are translated for the first time. Ezra Glinter, Dara Horn, and the translators will read from the stories, give us a taste of the Yiddish originals, and engage in a discussion of the work. Join us to celebrate these stories as they are given life in a new language.
