Tu B'Shvat Book Reading by Havurah Authors

Havurah members Alicia Jo Rabins (left) and Rebecca Clarren (below) will read from their newly published books, Fruit Geode and Kickdown.

Alicia's first collection of poems, Divinity School, won the APR/Honickman First Book Award; she is a poet, musician and Torah teacher, and will perform live music as part of the reading.

You can hear an interview with her on OPB's Think Out Loud by scrolling down this web page.

Rebecca is an award-winning journalist with extensive experience reporting on environmental issues; Kickdown, her debut novel, was shortlisted for the PEN/Bellwether Prize for Socially Engaged Fiction.

In the spirit of Tu B’Shvat, the authors will read passages from their books related to the natural world. The reading is sponsored by the Havurah Climate Action Team. RSVPs are appreciated.
