Celebrating the publication of

101 Jewish Poems for the Third Millennium

edited by Matthew E. Silverman and Nancy Naomi Carlson

"The poems in this finely curated anthology bear witness to the depth and breadth of Jewish tradition and culture. Somehow, these poems are able to comprehend horror and happiness, war and celebration, ritual and irreverence, awe and humor – all in the service of living life to the fullest despite a long and ongoing history of oppression. The light of the Jewish tradition shines brilliantly from these pages; we need that light now, and always." ~ Luke Hankins

Poets reading: Julia Knobloch, Linda Blachman, Tony Barnstone, Maia Evrona, Ken Seide, Pat Averbach, Rachel Neve-Midbar, Susan Rich, Sharon Dolin, Joanna Fuhrman, Jeff Friedman, Marjorie Agosin, Alison Ridley (Marjorie Agosin's translator), Diane Frank, and Nancy Naomi Carlson.
