Did you know that Westerns are among the first film and television genre? More than that, since the 1950s Westerns have been inspiring fan and pulp fiction not just in the United States, but across the globe! Join a panel of librarians as they talk about Israeli pulp fiction and western stories which were highly popular in Israel throughout the 1950s and 1960s but take place in an imaginary Arizona; that is, Arizona as imaged by those pseudo-translator authors. You will even get the chance to see some original, several decades old Israeli pulp fiction publications.
