Deborah Kahan Kolb shared with us some of her poignant and personal poetry reflecting on her unique experiences and challenges of growing up in, and ultimately leaving, the insular world of Hasidic Judaism.
Deborah spoke about her creative process, and gave participants a chance to try their hand at writing with a poetry prompt. The audience loved her reading and had a great time hanging out afterwards and sharing their own thoughts and experiences.
Deborah's work has appeared or is forthcoming in Poetica, Voices Israel, Veils, Halos & Shackles, New Verse News, Tuck, Literary Mama, Poets Reading the News, 3Elements Review, Rise Up Review, and Writers Resist. Deborah’s debut collection, Windows and a Looking Glass, was published by Finishing Line Press, 2017. DeborahKahanKolb.com
