Aaron Lansky: Outwitting History

This website is very pleased that our alter ego, the Klezmershack is co-sponsoring a reading by Aaron Lansky, founder and president of the National Yiddish Book Center, one of our favorite places (Aaron being one of our favorite people as well). As readers of these pages know, the NYBC is not only a great place, but most recently they went way out of their way to help me prepare materials for a lecture on Yiddish typography. The reading is part of the Boston Jewish Book Fair (Nov 7 - Dec 10) and is presented by the Miriam Goldman Author's Fund.

Thursday, Nov 18

Aaron Lansky, the man who spearheaded what has been called the greatest cultural rescue effort in Jewish history, recounts his poignant, intrepid, and often riotous quest to safeguard a great culture. Join this dynamic and inspirational speaker, who had a vision and made a profound contribution to the preservation of Jewish culture. Neither Yiddish literature, nor Yiddish song would be the same without his efforts.

The KlezmerShack is pleased as punch to do something new by co-sponsoring this event. In reality, though, if the Hebrew Type Blog had the Klezmershack's readership, we'd have done the sponsoring. Do please all show up and let the folks know that the Hebrew Type Blog sent you. Many thanks, ari.
