**SOLD-OUT**Queering Yiddish Folktales: SCHMUTZ Chapbook Launch in the Park

Thu September 10, 2020 @ 18:30 - 20:30

Join us for the reading & launch of SCHMUTZ, a new chapbook of queered Yiddish folklore by Jess Goldman.

In these days of pyjama-clad monotony, we’d like to invite you all to get fabulous and dress up as your favourite folkloric demon, or perhaps a demon of your own invention! But only if you want to, of course.

Reading will begin at 6:30, in Parc Jeanne-Mance, with challah and other tasty Ashkenaz snacks for you to nosh on!

SCHMUTZ was produced under the Museum of Jewish Montreal’s Microgrants for Creative or Cultural Exploration program, with support from the Goodman Foundation and Heritage Canada. Click here to view a pdf of SCHMUTZ
