Adrienne Rich was one of the most revered and influential American poets of the last century. In over 30 books of poetry and essays she championed the indivisibility of art and politics, offering a candid and brave articulation of feminism, sexuality, Jewish identity and civil rights. Her writing examines questions of language and history, the action of poetic imagination in change, and much more. Rich, who died in 2012, received - and occasionally resisted - multiple awards, including a MacArthur Fellowship, Academy of American Poets Fellowship and the National Medal for the Arts. Join Rich’s contemporary, poet Ruth Fainlight and writer and activist Lynne Segal come to Jewish Book Week to discuss Rich’s work and enduring legacy, interspersed with readings by poet Aoife Mannix.
