      Coming to America: Reading Groups for Public Libraries: Armenian Literature in Translation

      Book Clubs

      Join us for the fourth program in a special five-part book discussion series focusing on the immigrant experience—here, through the lens of Armenian literature in translation. The Yiddish Book Center’s “Coming to America” Reading Groups for Public Libraries is a program in which librarians arrange reading groups to discuss three books of Yiddish literature in translation, and one book related to an immigrant community (Armenian) served by their library. 

      The “Coming to America” reading and discussion program aims to engage teens and adults in thinking about immigrants’ experiences when encountering America: In what ways do immigrants change America, and in what ways does America change immigrants?

      The title being discussed at the Sunland-Tujunga Branch will be The Hundred Year Walk by Dawn Anahid MacKeen—who will also be joining us for the program! Copies can be borrowed from the branch or checked out from the library as holdings allow. This book discussion will facilitated by Ardem Tajerian, Senior Librarian.
