Readings of Singer at Brigham library

BRIGHAM CITY — In celebration of the centennial of the birth of writer Isaac B. Singer, the Brigham City Library will host a reading of Singer's works.

On Wednesday at 7 p.m., Jacqueline Osherow, English professor at the University of Utah, will speak about Singer's life and the role his works have played in conveying to generations a world lost after World War II. She will read from selected passages of his writings.

Brigham City's Library is one of 60 public libraries nationwide to receive grants to provide public programming about Singer.

Singer's children's stories are enjoyed by adults and children alike. He earned the Newbery Honor with several of his works, including, "Zlateh the Goat and Other Stories," "The Fearsome Inn" and "When Shlemiel Went to Warsaw and Other Stories."
