Yiddish Book Center, Talk

September 29 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm EDT

CONVERSATION | “Sutzkever Essential Prose,” with translator Zackary Sholem Berger | Thursday, September 29, @ 7 p.m. EST
“Sutzkever Essential Prose” brings to light for English readers the largely unknown prose of a seminal Yiddish poet. Avrom Sutzkever wrote the works in this volume over a span of more than 30 years, blurring the lines between fiction, memoir, and poetry; between real and imagined; between memory and metaphor. Now, through Zackary Sholem Berger’s translations, English readers can enter into an array of compelling, haunting scenes drawn from Sutzkever’s vast imagination and from the unique life he lived.

Presented as part of the Yiddish Book Center’s 2022 Great Jewish Books Club. Learn more about the Book Club here: yiddishbookcenter.org/book-club
