Literature at Lunch 

All are welcome to our next virtual Literature at Lunch on Saturday, May 28, from 12:15-1:45 p.m. Join Gail for a discussion of Behind the Fence a novella by Hayim Nahman Bialik.
"Behind the Fence" (published in 1909) takes place in a 19th century Ukrainian town where real and symbolic walls and fences separate Jews from non-Jews. In beautiful poetic prose, Bialik tells the story of a Jewish boy and a Christian girl, neighbors who try to cross over the barriers, first as friends and later as lovers. With his cast of colorful characters, vivid descriptions of nature, humor, social criticism, and knowledge of the human heart, Bialik creates a whole world and explores themes that are still timely today.
