THE GOLDEN PEACOCK: THE VOICE OF THE YIDDISH WRITER

Hosted By: YIVO

Many may be familiar with the poetry and prose of Celia Dropkin, Yankev Glatshteyn, Rokhl Korn, Aron Glanz-Leyeles, H. Leivick, Kadya Molodowsky, Itzik Manger, Avrom Sutzkever, Sholem-Aleichem, Beyle Schaechter-Gottesman, Yekhiel Shraibman and Elie Wiesel. But it can be rare to hear audio recordings of these writers reading their own works.

The Golden Peacock: The Voice of the Yiddish Writer (in Yiddish: Di Goldene Pave: Dos Kol fun dem Yidishn Shrayber) is a unique collection of Yiddish literature. In addition to the audio recordings, the project includes the texts in Yiddish and in English translation, biographies of the writers, and notes in English about each selection.

Join YIVO for a discussion of this publication featuring Sheva Zucker in conversation with Anna Fishman Gonshor. This event will be conducted in English, with selections of Yiddish poetry featured alongside English translations.
