Hester Street & Yekl
The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Florida International University is hosting a film and literature session. Join Ronelle Delmont for an interactive, multimedia presentation. This book & film lecture features the film Hester Street (1975) directed by Joan Micklin Silver, which was added in 2011 to the National Film Registry of the Library of Congress. It is a romantic film based on Abraham Cahan’s 1896 novel Yekl: A Tale of the New York Ghetto. The film stars Carol Kane, Steven Keats, Paul Freedman and Doris Roberts.
Delmont has a long career in public speaking and has been part of Florida’s book review and lecture circuit for many years. Her stimulating book and lecture topics are always meant to provoke thought and be entertaining at the same time. Her varied interests and lecture topics have made her one of South Florida’s most popular speakers.
Registration is required. This program is funded in part through a Florida Humanities Greater Good: Humanities in Academia in partnership with Florida International University.
Date/time: October 26 @ 12:30 pm - 2:30 pm
