Join CCAR Press to celebrate the release of "Longing: Poems of a Life" by the acclaimed poet, playwright, educator, and activist Merle Feld. In her newest book, Feld reveals her intensely personal story while naming profound human experience. We accompany her through early family violence, isolation, the discovery of community and love; we witness her climb from the loss of possibility to the assertion of self-worth and purpose. Deeply Jewish yet universal, this collection will take you on an intimate journey through the sorrows, joys, and accrued wisdom of a life lived deeply.
Merle will share her poetry in conversation with Rabbi Hara Person, Chief Executive of the Central Conference of American Rabbis.
