Jane Hirshfield

November 19, 2020

Jewish Community Center/Marin Poetry Center Present Jane Hirshfield & Meryl Natchez

Mill Valley poet Jane Hirshfield’s most recent, ninth poetry collection is Ledger (Knopf, 2020). Among her many honors are the California Book Award, the Northern California Book Award, and fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the Rockefeller Foundation. A former chancellor of the Academy of American Poets, she was elected in 2019 to the American Academy of Arts & Sciences. Meryl Natchez, the chair of the Marin Poetry Center, is a poet, translator and reviewer. Her fourth book, Catwalk, was released in June from Longship Press. The two poets will read from their new books and talk about their experiences as writers during a time of crisis, the importance of community, and their shared sense of reverence for the natural world. This event is cosponsored by The Marin Poetry Center.
