Isaac Bashevis Singer: Centennial Celebration at Oakton!
2004 is the centennial celebration of the master storyteller Isaac Bashevis Singer, who in 1978 became the seventh American to be awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature. "Becoming an American Writer: The Life and Works of Isaac Bashevis Singer," which commemorates the birth in Poland of the master storyteller, is a multifaceted program of public readings, panels, exhibitions, and workshops exploring Singer and the immigrant literary experience. Supported by the National Endowment for the Humanities and produced with cultural institutions nationwide from February 2004 to January 2005, stayed tuned for Centennial celebration events at Oakton!
