Outwitting History by Aaron Lansky is Medfield's very first 'one town one book' selection. This true story of a young Massachusetts man's project to gather Yiddish books turns into a far-reaching mission to help preserve a dying culture. As he picks up books from an older generation of immigrants he hears stories of family, homeland, politics, religion, language, and art. In other words, all that is dear to them.
Culture is the summation of who we are collectively, the pieces that were passed on to us from past generations and what we in turn pass on to the next generation. So as a community we will be exploring who we are, how we came to be here, and what we wish to pass on.
Entries should reflect on the theme of your own personal cultural legacy:
Where do you come from? • What is your heritage? • Who are your people? • What is your past?
