Upcoming Events

Thursday, September 5, 2019, 7 pm Etz Hayim Synagogue, "I Asked for Wonder"

Abraham Joshua Heschel wrote, "Never once in my life did I ask God for success or wisdom or power or fame. I asked for wonder, and he gave it to me." As we approach the High Holidays--the "Days of Awe"--Robert Crawford, Midge Goldberg, and Alfred Nicol will explore the role of wonder and awe in their poetry. All three poets are recipients of the Richard Wilbur Poetry Award for their books, Nicol for Winter Light in 2004, Crawford for The Empty Chair in 2011, and Goldberg for Snowman's Code in 2015. Robert Crawford is currently the poet laureate of Derry, N.H. The reading by the three poets will be followed by an open mike.
