Coming Soon: Merle Nudelman at Changing Hands Bookstore

True as MoonlightOn Friday February 6th, Merle Nudelman will be at the Changing Hands Bookstore, reading from her latest book, True as Moonlight.

Merle Nudelman is a writer, educator, and a former lawyer. Merle’s first book, Borrowed Light, won the 2004 Canadian Jewish Book Award for Poetry. True As Moonlight is her fourth collection. Her poems have garnered prizes both in Canada and in the United States and have appeared in various Canadian literary journals and anthologies including Poet to Poet (Guernica, 2012). Merle teaches memoir and poetry writing and gives lectures on healing and growth through expression.

The lyrical narrative poems in True as Moonlight rejoice at the insights, emotions, and development of a newborn and her family over a brief period of years. Crafted with an artist’s eye and poet’s appreciation for the profound that nestles within the mundane, this collection shimmers with reverence and clarity. The trajectory of the poems shudders and shifts when the young girl’s father falls ill. With unflinching honesty and compassion, Nudelman gently unwraps luminous, triumphant moments in life’s circle of birth, growth, and mortality.

When: February 6th, 2015 at 7:00 pm

Where: Changing Hands Bookstore 6428 South McClintock Drive (at Guadalupe) in Tempe, Arizona.
