A quick bulletin for any readers in the western Massachusetts area (or within reasonable driving distance of Western MA) -- I wanted to let you know that I'm doing two events around 70 faces in days to come:
In Berkshire / western Massachusetts:
Reading/signing at Congregation Beth Israel, March 16, 7pm. (Books provided by Papyri Books.) I'll read from the book and to talk about poetry, midrash, and finding a mirror for our own lives and spiritual experience in Torah. 53 Lois Street, North Adams.
Lunchtime reading at Knesset Israel synagogue, March 21 (presented as part of Jewish Federation of the Berkshires' celebration of Women's History Month). Lunch at noon; reading / presentation at 1pm. 16 Colt Road Pittsfield, MA 01201.
If you come to the reading on Monday at 1pm, you'll have the chance to wish me happy birthday in person; if you come tomorrow evening, you'll get to see me at my own home congregation. Anyway, if you're nearby and are able to come, please do -- it's always nice to have friendly faces in the crowd!
