The third and final staged literary evening in the Lillian Goldman Literary Series will explore the hopes and confusions of immigrant Jews as they struggle to transplant their lives from Europe's Yiddish-speaking cultures to New York. Along with wrenching stories about the quest to find home in the new land, the program will present scenes of astonishing possibilities and intimate strength from the works of Henry Roth, Michael Gold, Anzia Yezierska and Alfred Kazin, with special guest appearances by New York Times writer Joseph Berger and National Book Award-winning poet Gerald Stern.

All coats and bags MUST be checked. Please plan accordingly.
