Recommended for: Book clubs and young adults
Read from April 22 to 23, 2011


At a very young age, Mary Antin exhibited an incredible facility for using words to capture and illuminate experience. In her narrative, ‘From Plotzk to Boston,’ with lucid and luminescent prose, she shares an insider’s view of the Russian-Jewish emigration experience—its agonies and its joys—during the late nineteenth century.

Recommendation: This is a very highly recommended, short read. Read also Mary Antin’s ‘The Promised Land,’ a more comprehensive look at the emigrant/immigrant experience. If you have an ereader, and/or software, these books are available to download free of charge (see below).
