Issac Bashevis Singer (1904-1991), was a Polish-born American writer in the Yiddish language and Nobel laureate. He was born on July 14th, 1904, in Radzymin, Poland. He immigrated to the U.S. in 1935 and became a naturalized citizen in 1943.

In 1978, he was awarded the Nobel Prize in literature for an "impassioned narrative art" that is rooted in Polish-Jewish culture. His Collected Stories was published in 1982 and Stories for Children in 1984. A popular film, Yentl, was based on his story Yentl the Yeshiva Boy (1983).
