Reading and Book Signing: Laurance Wieder

January 18 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Free

Laurance Wieder will read excerpts from his three recently published books—After Adam, Isaiah’s Closing Arguments, and Poetry History Music Art.

After Adam A story told in prose and verse. Mortality is its theme. Populated by rabbis, storytellers, mystics, poets, travelers and philosophers, this Jewish saga belongs to the same tribe as Dante’s Vita Nuova, Sir Philip Sidney’s Countess of Pembroke’s Arcadia, and Vladimir Nabokov’s Pale Fire.

Isaiah’s Closing Arguments A New Translation, contains all the prophet’s farewell speeches that conclude the Torah service. Isaiah’s words transcend place, time, and doctrine, and these orations stand alone as a series of poems on error, defiance,and hope.

Poetry History Music Art: Essay 1996-2017 Explores the space where word and image, experience and belief converge. Crossing disciplines, the collection begins with a description of ordinary worship in an extraordinary time, and ends contemplating messianicunease
