Three Local Libraries Receive Jewish Literature Grants

*Let's talk about it... in Hebrew!

-- Bruce Ticker

Three local libraries have received grants for ?Let's Talk About It:  Jewish Literature? programs from the Public Programs Office of the American Library Association and Nextbook, according to the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia.
The libraries work with Federation's Chester County and Delaware County regions and are among 60 public and academic libraries throughout the United States. The recipients are the Langston Hughes Memorial Library at Lincoln University; Phoenixville Public Library and Swarthmore Public Library.
The programs feature scholar-led, theme-based discussions that explore the best contemporary and classic Jewish literature. Each participating library hosts a five-part discussion series. Phoenixville and Swarthmore will discuss ?Demons, Golems and Dybbuks: Monsters of the Jewish Imagination? and Langston will discuss ?Between Two Worlds: Stories of Estrangement and Homecoming."
Discussion programs will be led by local scholars on Sunday afternoons beginning in September. The programs are free, but space is limited and pre-registration is required. For more information, contact Shelley Rappaport, director, Chester County and Delaware County Regions of Federation at 610 578-9000 or rrappaport@philafederation.org.
