An evening with Stefan Kanfer

by Tibi Z. Singer

New York Book Club and Lower East Side Jewish Conservancy invite you to:

An evening with Stefan Kanfer, author of Stardust Lost: The Triumph, Tragedy, and Mishugas of the Yiddish Theater in America

Thursday, January 18th at 6 PM

Yiddish Theater returns to its home on the Lower East Side with writer/performer/storyteller Stefan Kanfer. In his book Stardust Lost, Kanfer describes the tumultuous history of the Yiddish stage, and brings to life its larger-than-life personalities. In this richly evocative discussion, Kanfer resurrects the forgotten landmarks and vital personalities of the Yiddish Theater, revealing the nightly drama and comedy that played out on stage and behind the scenes.

Herb Latner, a former child actor in the Yiddish Theater and a member of the Yiddish Artists and Friends and Actors Club board, will introduce and host the evening.

As space is limited, please RSVP to bookclub@tenement.org.
