Yiddish Book Center’s “Coming to America” Reading Group

The Yiddish Book Center’s “Coming to America” Reading Group is a reading and discussion program is designed to engage teens and adults in thinking about immigrants’ experiences encountering America. Using Yiddish literature as a portal, the program will feature Yiddish literature in translation that explores questions of identity, assimilation, language, cuisine, and generational change, presenting American identity as an ongoing conversation, a give-and-take between insiders and outsiders, and will compare these works written in the early 20th century to works by contemporary immigrant writers. We received a grant from the Yiddish Book Center that provided multiple copies of the book club titles. For more information, email Jessica at jonesj@bryantx.gov. The next meeting of this club will be after we can safely gather in person. Future meetings will be Spring 2021 or later. Books are still available, and patrons are welcome to check them out and come talk to Jessica Jones about them if they would like. Jessica has lots of resources to accompany the books. She will also announce when future meetings are scheduled. Contact Jessica at jonesj@bryantx.gov or (979) 764-3416 for more information.
