Filament Reading Series

October 25, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Join us for Filament’s October reading, with special guest Alicia Jo Rabins! We have a new cast of talented MFA readers in addition to Alicia, and we’re delighted to be back at the IPRC this autumn.

“Alicia Jo Rabins is a writer, musician, composer, performer and Torah teacher. She creates multi-genre works of experimental beauty which explore the intersection of ancient wisdom texts with everyday life.

Rabins’ first collection of poetry, Divinity School, won the 2015 APR/Honickman First Book Prize and was a finalist for the Oregon Book Award. Her second collection, Fruit Geode, was published in October 2018 by Augury Books/Brooklyn Arts Press. As a musician and performer, Rabins is the creator and performer of Girls in Trouble, an indie-folk song cycle about the complicated lives of Biblical women with accompanying curriculum, and A Kaddish for Bernie Madoff, a chamber-rock opera about the intersection of finance and spirituality which is currently being made into an independent feature film.”

Our MFA student and alumni readers are:

Alex Behr
Sean Hennessey
Genevieve Hudson
