Amy Berkowitz, The Orange: Mythologizing Place and Holding Space
Born in New York City, Amy Berkowitz moved west for grad school (Ann Arbor) and further west (here) to be a poet. Today, she writes very little poetry but a fair amount of prose. Her first book, Tender Points, was published by Timeless, Infinite Light in 2015; she is currently working on a novel. When she's not writing, she hosts the Amy's Kitchen Organics reading series and helps run the writing residency at Alley Cat Books.
“HEAR ME TALK ABOUT ORANGESI've been selected to give a Place Talk at the Prelinger Library! I'll be talking about all the work oranges do to represent place and hold space, and investigating how a Jewish tradition has become alienated from its lesbian roots. My talk is March 14, 2019 if you want to plan ahead.”
