Save the Date - September 13!

Jaclyn Piudik and I are delighted to announce that the VIRTUAL launch for our collaborative poetry collection, Seduction: Out of Eden, will take place on Tuesday, September 13, at 7:00pm at Cornelia Street in Exile!

Join us for a reading and discussion with Robin Hirsch, “Minister of Culture and Wine Czar.” Robin opened Cornelia Street Cafe in 1977, showcasing musicians, poets, writers, and artists. Closed in 2018, due to rising rents, it now exists virtually.

Seduction: Out of Eden, just published by Kelsay Books, is a modern reimagining/midrash of the Biblical book of Genesis from creation through the expulsion from the Garden of Eden. The book has received endorsements from Mary Stewart Hammond, Yerra Sugarman, and Gili Haimovich. Some of the poems have been published in journals, such as Across the Margins and Bearings Online.

As the date approaches, we will send the link for the launch. In the interim, if you’d like to order a copy of the book, it is available:
