Jewish Poetry Now
Celebrating The Bloomsbury Anthology of Contemporary Jewish American Poetry
Sunday March 23 2014 5:00PM
Center for Jewish History, 15 West 16 Street, NYC
The reading will spotlight a dynamic and talented troupe of troubadors including Sharon Dolin, Edward Hirsch, Deborah Ager (coeditor of the Bloomsbury Anthology), Jacqueline Osherow, David Lehman, Victoria Redel, Amy Gottlieb, Nomi Stone, Judith Baumel, Jason Schneiderman, and Cheryl J. Fish. Moderated by Miriam R. Haier. A wine and cheese reception will follow.
Admission is FREE. Seats are comfortable. Boys and girls together, me and Mamie O'Rourke. You don't have to be Jewish to eat Levy's Jewsh Rye Bread, one of the better commercials of its time, beat out the New York Times ("if you're without it, you're not with it") in the category of subway posters. It is rumored that Shawn Green and Mike Piazza will attend the event, with the former reading the late Ralph Kiner's elegy to Hank Greenberg.
