Tales of the Jewish immigrant experience in three works of fiction translated from the Yiddish, and a fourth book that relates to an immigrant community served by our library system. The route of arrival may differ, but the perils, the confusion, and the settling in of immigrants to this new world are themes common to all.

The Yiddish Book Center’s “Coming To America” Reading Groups for Public Libraries is made possible by a gift from Sharon Karmazin
