About Alicia Jo:
Beautifully weaving together her lyrics, violin, a loop pedal, and feminist Torah scholarship, Rabins explores the hidden places where the stories of biblical women overlap with our own.
You will also a selection of poems from her two collections, Divinity School (winner of the 2015 American Poetry Review/Honickman First Book Prize) and Fruit Geode.
“Divinity School is an astonishing find: a poetry page-turner, both sexy and humble.”—San Francisco Chronicle
