We caught up with Ri J. Turner, a 2014 Yiddish Book Center Translation Fellow, to chat about her translation of A.S. Lirik’s "A New Year's Eve State of Mind.” An M.A. student in the Department of Yiddish at Hebrew University, Ri is currently studying as a graduate exchange student at Medem Library in Paris, France. She joins us on the phone from Paris to discuss her work as a Yiddish translator, how she found Lirik’s piece, translating work by Yiddish writer Der Tunkeler, and the Yiddish scene in Paris. Ri’s translation of "A New Year's Eve State of Mind" is posted on the Yiddish Book Center's website: yiddishbookcenter.org. Episode 0207 December 26, 2018 Yiddish Book Center Amherst, Massachusetts
