The Yiddish Book Center’s “Stories of Exile” Reading Groups for Public Libraries is 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.

June's book for discussion will be individual stories from On The Landing: Stories by Yenta Mash. All participants will be given the book to read in advance, so registration is limited to sixteen (16) people.
