Vilnius Yiddish Reading Circle turning to prewar Kaunas

After a month of concentrating on prewar Yiddish newspapers from Vilnius (Yiddish Vílne), the weekly Yiddish Literary Reading Circle, now in its 17th year, turns in its next session, this coming Sunday, 18 October 2015 at 1 PM (1300) sharp, to readings from Yiddish newspapers in interwar Kaunas (Yiddish Kóvne).
