A Bintel Brief by Liana Finck
April 7 - September 1
A Bintel Brief: A graphic novel adapted from letters to the Forverts newspaper's advice column
The exhibit’s illustrated panels are excerpts from a graphic novel by artist Liana Finck, to be published by Ecco Press in the winter of 2014. Each of the eleven stories in the book is based on a different letter written to the Bintel Brief, a beloved Yiddish advice column published in the Forvertsnewspaper beginning in 1906. The column was the brainchild of the newspaper's founding editor Abraham Cahan. The letters, written by recent immigrants to America, expressed a heightened sense of reality full of tragedy, hope, sweetness and humor.
