Elana Nachman Dykewomon's Lambda Literary Award-winning Beyond the Pale shares the lives and loves of two Russian Jewish women who emigrate to New York City in the early years of the twentieth century.
This is the fourth installment of SFPL's participation in the Yiddish Book Center’s “Stories of Exile” Reading Groups for Public Libraries, a reading and discussion program to engage teens and adults in thinking about experiences of displacement, migration, and diaspora. In this program, librarians organize reading groups to discuss three books of Yiddish literature in translation, and one book related to the experience of a community served by their library. The Yiddish Book Center’s “Stories of Exile” Reading Groups for Public Libraries is made possible by a gift from Sharon Karmazin.
