Join us on Zoom for a poetry reading and discussion with poets Barbara Leff and Ann Bookman.
Born and raised in New York, Barbara Leff discovered poetry at the age of 12 and has explored the genre ever since. Co-founder of the Caselli Street Poets, her work has appeared in numerous journals including Faultline, Fourteen Hills and Ibbetson Street. Her first book, “And God Said…,” was published in 2011 by Broadstone Books and she has presented it to Torah study and Bible study groups throughout the United States and parts of Canada. Her second book, “Luck,” which appeared in 2019, explores various narrative forms including ones she invented. She is at work on a third book, a collection of her lifetime work. She lives in San Francisco with her wife, Arlene Singer, and their brood of four-legged furry ones.
Ann Bookman’s poetry has been published in The Larcom Review, Chronogram: A Journal of Arts, Culture and Spirit and The Virtual Wall, an online creative-writing site run in memory of the veterans of the Vietnam War, among others. “Point of Attachment,” her first chapbook, was published by Finishing Line Press in 2012. A social anthropologist by training, Bookman is a leading researcher and social policy expert on women’s issues, work-family balance and community engagement. She served as the director of the Center for Women in Politics and Public Policy at the McCormack Graduate School of Policy and Global Studies until 2018. She’s now an affiliated faculty member of the McCormack Graduate School and is a long-time member of Temple Israel.+ More... - Less...
