Readings: Linda Stitt’s Saturdays at Portobello

June 8th, 2012 by admin

I enjoyed the three readings I gave on June 2, 3, and 4. June 2 was at Linda Stitt’s Saturdays at Portobello. I read all new poems including my tribute to Yasmin Levy “WORDS TIPPED WITH FIRE.” Linda stepped into the sandals of Osiris, while I wore the jewels of Isis in our reading of Act One Scene 2 of my libretto for the opera ISIS AND OSIRIS. On Sunday, I read at the 2012 Hamilton Jewish Literary Festival. “Aron, in Three Movements” is a poem about my grandmother’s brother, a cantor in Galicia who lost his life in the Holocaust. On Monday I read my story “Yetta’s Gift” at the 2012 Toronto Jewish Book Festival, sponsored by the Jewish Genealogy Society of Canada (Toronto). It was an exciting and intense three days!
