Translating Yiddish Women’s Work, with Ellen Cassedy, Jessica Kirzane, & Faith Jones

Recorded Live Via Zoom on March 17, 2022

A lively conversation with translators whose work focuses on women writers – lesser known writers and some unknown. They share the stories of the women writers they’ve discovered and shed light on the lives and work of these writers.

Presented as part of the Yiddish Book Center’s 2022 Decade of Discovery – Women in Yiddish.
