Visiting with Alicia Ostriker

Western Michigan University was fortunate to have poet, critic and midrashist Alicia Suskin Ostriker visit our campus this past week. On Tuesday she gave a lecture on contemporary midrash, and on Wednesday a reading which featured poems from her new volume The Book of Seventy, published just last month.

Poetry Editors Natalie Giarratano and Beth Marzoni will be conducting an interview with Ms. Ostriker, which we're excited to have slated for an upcoming issue of the journal.
