I shared poems from Texts to the Holy at a handful of readings and events while the volume was being written and revised and prepared for print.
But the first reading from the new collection since it actually came out will take place later this month.
It's part of the "Sundays @ The J with George and Friends" series, and it's a Ben Yehuda Press reading featuring three Ben Yehuda poets: Yakov Moshe (also known as Rabbi Jay Michaelson), author of Is; Maxine Silverman, author of Shiva Moon; and myself. The reading will be hosted by Dr. George Kraus.
You can read about it on the Shames JCC website: Sunday Poetry: Rabbi Rachel Barenblat, Yakov Moshe (Jay Michaelson), and Maxine Silverman. Or, for those who don't want to click through, here are the most salient details:
Sunday, March 18
Free for members; $10 non-members
Books will be available for sale and signing after the reading.
If you're in or near Tarrytown, I hope you'll join us!
