GREAT JEWISH WRITERS From the Shtetl to New York

  • Santa Fe Jewish Film Festival Santa Fe, NM (map)

Sholem Aleichem may be the best known of the Jewish Eastern European writers but a panoply of writers from the Haskalah (Jewish Enlightenment) and early 1900s contributed to the canon of Jewish inflected literature. Their influence is reflected today in the writings of authors from Philip Roth to Michael Chabon and most recently in the Tony award-winning play “Indecent”. Professor Jeremy Dauber brings life to these early writers and their legacies.
