Visiting Writers Series: Alicia Jo Rabins

Connelly Auditorium

The University of the Arts' Visiting Writers Series is sponsored by the Creative Writing program and features acclaimed contemporary writers who will visit campus each year. These distinguished poets, novelists, short story writers and screenwriters will give readings – all of which are free and open to the public – and meet with students in the Creative Writing major to discuss issues of craft and the writing life.

This reading features poet, composer, performer and Torah scholar Alicia Jo Rabins. Her book Divinity School won the 2015 American Poetry Review/Honickman First Book Prize and her poems have appeared in the Boston Review, 6x6 and Ploughshares. Alicia tours internationally with her band, Girls in Trouble, an indie-folk song cycle about the complicated lives of Biblical women, and with her one-woman chamber-rock opera about the intersection of spirituality and finance, A Kaddish for Bernie Madoff.

This event is co-sponsored by The American Poetry Review.
