In this class, we’ll read Kadya Molodowsky’s 1942 novel Fun Lublin Biz Nyu York. It’s written as a diary of a young woman who immigrates to New York under troubling circumstances. We’ll read the text of the book together in class, looking up unfamiliar words as we go, discussing the text in Yiddish and/or English to make sure everyone is following along, and along the way, indulge in lengthy tangents about whatever else comes up.
