The Workers Circle Presents Irena Klepfisz: Her Birth and Later Years
Hosted By: The Workers Circle
For fifty years, Irena Klepfisz has written powerful, searching poems about relatives murdered during the war, recent immigrants, a lost Yiddish writer, a Palestinian boy in Gaza, and various people in her life. A trailblazing lesbian poet, child Holocaust survivor, and political activist whose work is deeply informed by socialist values, Klepfisz is a vital and individual American voice. Klepfisz’s new book, Her Birth and Later Years: New and Collected Poems, 1971-2021, is the first and only complete collection of her work. Join the Workers Circle and YIVO Institute for Jewish Research for an online conversation at 7 PM ET with Irena Klepfisz and Julie Enszer celebrating this new book.
