Tough & Tender Landscapes (in person)

Sunday, Feb 25th 2:00p to 3:30pBeth Jacob welcomes Wendy Hoffman and Judith Janoo, two friends and published authors in their own right. Sharing some of their recently published poetry, Jewish and non-Jewish perspectives overlap in their experiences. Just This is a lyrical journey of growing up in a Maine fishing village, marrying into the Malaysian culture, and living in the Northeast Kingdom. Eloquently detailed, Judith Janoo’s poems speak to the earth and its creatures, love and connection, loss and beauty, and wonder. In Belonging, Wendy Hoffman’s poems describe recipes and cooked-from-scratch Jewish food carried in the grandmother’s memory from the Old Country to this New Land. Strudels keep a clashing family holding on. The poems encompass the truths of the daily lives of three generations of women and hint at contradictory hidden ones. Refreshment to follow.
