From Across the Waters: A Reading by Refugee Poets and their Descendants
Wed, December 5, 2018 5:30 P.M.
Poets Olga Livshin and Julia Kolchinsky Dasbach lead this poetry celebration of immigrant lives and voices. In the wake of the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting, Philadelphia refugee poets and poet descendants of refugees who came to the U.S. for a better life are standing together. The poets wish to spotlight the surviving words and ongoing lives of immigrant communities despite the shooting that happened in our country, in our state. They hope to be powerful voices and witnesses for Jewish communities and refugee communities under attack across the United States.
