Jewish Community Center of San Francisco says…

Alicia Ostriker writes “as an American, a woman, a Jew, a mother, a wife, a lover of beauty and art, a teacher, an idealist, a skeptic.” Lauded for her sharp intellect, Ostriker is the award-winning author of fourteen poetry collections including The Book of Life, The Mother/Child Papers, No Heaven, and the volcano sequence, as well as several books on the Bible. "Alicia Ostriker is not only one of our very best poets but one of our most crucial." – Joyce Carol Oates
