Shalom/Sholom: The Yiddish Mark Twain

June 14, 2020 at 1:00 PM
Sholom Aleichem, AKA the Yiddish Mark Twian, left his literary mark on the world, weaving tales that once would have been told in the market square or around a fire. With a gift for narrative and vouces, Bob Spiotto brings Aleichem to life and offers a unique smorgasbord of his stories, recreating them much as they might once have been heard.
