CLC Virtual Event with the Yiddish Book Center

October 20, 8:00 pm

Treasures from the Shul 

The Yiddish Book Center has rescued well over a million books in its 42-year history. Join Center founder and MacArthur Fellow Aaron Lansky and bibliographer David Mazower as they discuss six boxes of Yiddish books donated recently by North Suburban Synagogue Beth El. They’ll highlight some of the unexpected treasures – including pristine copies of an anthology of Yiddish women poets published in Chicago in 1928 – and answer why Yiddish books continue to inspire readers of all ages.
