Ronelle’s Books: “Yekl” by Abraham Cahan

September 6, 2022 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Florida International University in collaboration with Pembroke Pines Jewish Center is hosting a literature session. Join Ronelle Delmont for an engaging discussion and in depth analysis on “Yekl” by Abraham Cahan (1860-1951) and published in 1896 by the founder of the Forverts newspaper. It is a work of realistic fiction that draws attention to complicated issues of immigrant assimilation in New York at the turn of the 20th century. It does so with humor, criticism, and compassion. The novel’s plot centers on Jake, a Jewish immigrant sweatshop worker and his wife.

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.

This event is free to attend, but registration and proof of vaccination are required by the venue. Free parking is available onsite. This program is funded in part through a Florida Humanities Greater Good: Humanities in Academia Grant in partnership with Florida International University.
