Program Description

Event Details

Fort Vancouver Regional Libraries and The Yiddish Book Center are proud to bring “Coming to America: Reading Groups for Public Libraries” to White Salmon Valley Community Library. Offered as a hybrid program with the option to attend in-person or online, this series will include three books, looking at the immigrant experience from Yiddish communities before, during, and after WWII. Each month we will use a specific book as a springboard into a broader conversation of immigration to America from across the globe and over time.

Registration is required. Registrants will be sent the link to join us at the time of the event via email. A copy of the book will be available for pickup at your local library branch upon registration. Don't forget to include your home library when registering.

Programs sponsored by a generous grant from The Yiddish Book Center.
