Ghetto to Ghetto: Yiddish and Jive in Everyday Life

June 16 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The Kirkus Review enthusiastically pronounced: “According to this pop-language book, the language of the Jewish and black Ghettos have enriched the wider American vernacular. . . Foster offers a tasty feast of curious and intriguing lore for readers (and writers) looking to spice up their language. . . An intriguing romp for word and trivia mavens.”

Herb Foster is an Emeritus Professor at SUNY/Buffalo, a WWII veteran, and lives on Martha’s Vineyard. He is also a researcher, NPR and MVTV host, writer, author of several books including the bestselling Ribbin’, Jivin’, and Playin’ the Dozens.
