    Book Launch — The Acrobat: Selected Poems of Celia Dropkin

    Wednesday, July 16 from 6:30 to 8 pm

    Co-sponsored by the YIVO Institute for Jewish Research

    Translators Faith Jones, Jennifer Kronovet and Samuel Solomon bring the works of Lower East Side Yiddish poet Celia Dropkin to an English-speaking audience. Their keen translation captures the lyrical and emotional quality of Dropkin’s poems, which were originally written in the 1920s and 1930s. Join Jones and Solomon as they talk about and read from Dropkin’s works.
