Alicia Suskin Ostriker, one of the nation's premier poets and critics, will speak at the Jewish Community Center of San Francisco. Writing as "as an American, a woman, a Jew, a mother, a wife, a lover of beauty and art, a teacher, an idealist, a skeptic," Ostriker has cultivated a truly inimitable voice. At once unpretentious and provocative, she has been called "America's most fiercely honest poet" (Progressive
). Come hear the author of several books on the Bible and 14 poetry collections, including The Book of Life, The Mother/Child Papers, No Heaven
, and the volcano sequence
. But be prepared to experience some strong reactions. As Ostriker told Contemporary Authors
, "When I give poetry readings, my hope is to make people in my audience laugh and cry. They often do."
