At-A-Site Theater presents a Summer Project Celebrating Birthdays of Dead Writers: Isaac Bashevis Singer, July 14

July 14, 2014 

Isaac Bashevis Singer (1904-1991)

(Singer's real birthday was November 21, 1902, but he used July 14, 1904, possibly to avoid being inscripted into the army as a young Jewish man in Poland by appearing younger than he was)

 

Time: 7:00pm - 9:00pm

Location: Downtown Asheville NC

Either at Wall Street & Battery Park Avenue  map link
or on Haywood Street near Malaprops  map link

Passersby are invited to chose from selections by this Jewish novelist and short story writer, famous for his Yiddish stories and novels of Jewish life in the Polish ghettos and in Post World War II New York City. The selected passages will then be read to them.
