Please join Adriana X. Jacobs on Monday, April 25, for the Oxford launch of Women’s Hebrew Poetry on American Shores: Poems by Anne Kleiman and Annabelle Farmelant (2016, Wayne State University Press). The event will take place at 7:15pm at the Clarendon Institute Building (Walton Street), but come as early as 6:45 for a drink and light refreshments. Professor Jacobs will be speaking about her translations of Annabelle Farmelant and the role of translation in recovering the long neglected voices of women Hebrew writers. All are welcome!
