Mendele Personal Notices and Announcements
Date: May 23, 2019

To minimize wear and tear on the untershames, three requests:

1. Send time-sensitive notices well in advance.
2. Send material as plain text to victor.bers at yale.edu as plain text (no
HTML, other  coding, or attachments) and write MENDELE PERSONALS in the
subject line.
3. Correspond directly with the person who or organization which has posted
the notice, *not* with your ever-beleaguered untershames.

  I would like to announce the publication of a book of essays translated
into English by the Yiddish novelist, Chava Rosenfarb. The book is called,
Confessions of a Yiddish Writer and Other Essays, and it is published by
McGill-Qeens University Press. The book consists of 13 essays, divided into
three sections: personal memoir, literary criticism, and two travelogues,
one of which is a lengthy reminiscence of Rosenfarb’s first visit to
Australia and her encounter with the Jewish community there. I am the
editor of this volume as well as one of the translators. The official
publication date is June, but books may be ordered at:

Goldie Morgentaler,
Professor of English,
University of Lethbridge
