MORE ABOUT THE READERS
Marcia Falk is a poet, a scholar, and a translator from both Hebrew and Yiddish. Her latest book is The Days Between: Blessings, Poems, and Directions of the Heart for the Jewish High Holiday Season, a volume for those seeking to connect more deeply with their Judaism, and for all readers in search of a contemplative approach to the themes of the fall season. Among her other publications are three books of poems, a translation of The Song of Songs praised by both Isaac Bashevis Singer and Adrienne Rich, a translation of the twentieth century mystic Zelda Schneurson Mishkovsky from the Hebrew, and another of the Yiddish modernist Malka Heifetz Tussman.
Steven Rood’s book of poems I Say Your Name is devoted to the memory of two men, the great poet Jack Gilbert, and to Rood’s own late psychotherapist, poems of vivid, loving re-creation, humor, and profound empathy. He has been for many years a member of the workshop begun by the legendary poet Jack Gilbert at San Francisco State in 1967 and continuing to this day, and he was a primary caregiver to Gilbert during his last Alzheimer’s days. These two readers are husband and wife.
