Dear Safranim,

University in Jerusalem:

A Late Arrival:
Isaac Bashevis Singer in New York City, 1935

Tuesday, February 27, 2018
6 p.m.
Sponsored by the Fordham-NYPL Lecture Series in Jewish Studies

Lecture description:

Nobel laureate Isaac Bashevis Singer arrived penniless in New York in 1935,
having left his common-law wife and five-year-old son in Warsaw. He entered
the United States on a six-month visa, his older brother having arranged
illegal work for him to write for the Jewish daily, The Forward. His
fiction was largely unknown and his subject matter obscure—and yet his
mission was to find his way in literature, which meant taking the literary
lessons he had learned in Poland and making them relevant in America.
