Poetry Reading with Joy Ladin

Please join QJews, Kol Rinah's queer community, the Jewish Book Festival, the Gateway Business Guild, and MaTovu for a public poetry reading by Joy Ladin.

The Center for Jewish Learning presents Community Scholar-in-Residence Dr. Joy Ladin for a trio of events to discuss her poetry, her most recent book “The Soul of the Stranger: Reading God and Torah from a Transgender Perspective,” and to facilitate a learning session entitled “Reading Torah Through the Lens of Transgender Experience.”

In 2007, Joy Ladin became the first openly transgender employee of Yeshiva University. Ladin teaches at the Stern College of Yeshiva University, where she holds the David and Ruth Gottesman Chair in English.

Ladin has published numerous poetry collections, including “The Future Is Trying to Tell Us Something.” Ladin is also the author of a memoir, National Jewish Book Award finalist “Through the Door of Life: A Jewish Journey Between Genders.”
