JHM series spotlights modern Jewish writers

The Jewish History Museum’s “Reclaiming Discourses” series will feature (clockwise from top left): Laynie Browne (Sep. 17), Sam Ace (Oct. 14), Hannah Ensor (Nov. 11), Kate Bernheimer (Dec. 16) and Rachel Zucker (Jan. 27, 2016).

The Jewish History Museum and University of Arizona Poetry Center will present a monthly series, “Reclaiming Discourses: Jewish Writers Today,” beginning Thursday, Sept. 17.

The five contemporary authors, who write both poetry and prose, explore what it means to be human by delving into such diverse subjects as fairy tales, gender, motherhood, environmental art and sports.

The series kicks off at 7 p.m. on Sept. 17 with Laynie Brown at the UA Poetry Center, 1508 E. Helen St. The remaining sessions will be held on Wednesdays at 7 p.m. at the Jewish History Museum, 564 S. Stone Ave.
