Author Book Talk

Wednesday, April 27 at 7:30 pm, Rachel Kaufman, A Zoom Presentation on her poetry collection, “Many to Remember”.  Many to Remember enters the archive’s unconscious to reveal the melodies hidden within the language of the past.  The collection unravels Kaufman’s historical research of New Mexican crypto-Jews and the Mexican Inquisition alongside the poet’s own family histories.  The book navigates questions of memory, transmission, media, and translation and asks:  How can poetry translate history and the rhythms and form of the archive?  This event is ZOOM only.

Books are available for purchase in the B’nai Jacob office for $20.  A portion of the proceeds will be donated to CBJ.  Cash is fine or make checks payable to Rachel Kaufman.

Unless otherwise noted, all services, classes and events are in person at B’nai Jacob, located at 75 Rimmon Road, Woodbridge, as well as live streamed and/or on ZOOM.  Call the B’nai Jacob office for digital access and more information 203-389-2111 or email office@bnaijacob.org.
