Alicia Ostriker & Gerald Stern
Alicia Ostriker & Gerald Stern — Poems
Saturday, December 15th, 2012 at 3PM — Labyrinth Books Princeton
Layout 1

Poets Gerald Stern and Alicia Ostriker will be reading from their new collections. Please join us.

Ostriker's new volume, The Book of Life, charts her extraordinary struggle to deal with a wounded world and find reasons for hope.

The lyric poems of In Beauty Bright, although marked by the same passion and swiftness as Stern’s previous work, move into an area of knowledge—even wisdom—that reflects a long life of writing, teaching, and activism. They are poems of grief and anger, but the music is delicate and moving.

Alicia Ostriker is the author of fourteen poetry collections as well as several books on the Bible.  She has received the Paterson Poetry Prize, the William Carlos Williams Award, the San Francisco State Poetry Center Award, the National Jewish Book Award, and has twice been a finalist for the National Book Award. Gerald Stern, the author of seventeen poetry collections, has won the National Book Award, the National Jewish Book Award, the Ruth Lilly Prize, and the Wallace Stevens Award, among others.
