In honor of National Poetry Month and the Yiddish Book Center's Decade of Discovery theme for this year, "Yiddish in America: Cultural Encounters," we're featuring a podcast with Faith Jones about her work translating the experimental Yiddish poet Celia Dropkin, a Dadaist sound poem about Coney Island from the late 1930s, and an article about 'Detroit's soulful Yiddish poet,' Ezra Korman.
