Vilna Yiddish literary reading circle invites to its next meeting
After a successful experiment at the first session it was decided that each week’s session would start with an intriguing article from a different prewar Vilna Yiddish newspaper. In addition to reading from the photocopies provided, participants will be able to view the original newspaper. The session, which lasts an hour-and-a-half total, will then move on to the literary text being read. This Sunday the circle will start reading a humorous text by Der Túnkeler, “The Dark One,” pseudonym of Joseph Tunkel (1881 – 1949), a Litvak Yiddish humorist born in Bobruisk, now in Belarus.
