About the event
Using Miriam Udel’s new anthology Honey on the Page: A Treasury of Yiddish Children’s Literature, attendees will explore the rich world of Yiddish storytelling through movement, art and poetry. This gathering, featuring Miriam Udel and Cameron Bernstein, is aimed primarily at children 4-8 but will also offer a great deal to their older siblings and loving grownups.
Ten copies of the book will be raffled off to interested participants.
