Poetry Reading with Sholem Berger

Workmen's Circle Building, 1762 Beacon St, Brookline

Zackary Sholem Berger will read from his newest book of poetry in English and Yiddish, One Nation Taken Out of Another (Apprentice House, 2014) - a joyride on a bassackward hybrid with an American brain, Yiddish heart, and all sorts of wandering limbs grafted onto the whole. It's midrash, whimsy, and polyglot extravagance. The evening will be in Yiddish and a smattering of English. Books will be for sale.
