Merle Nudelman at Changing Hands Bookstore Tonight

True as MoonlightMerle Nudelman will be at Changing Hands Bookstore, this Friday February 6th, 2015. The reading will start at 7pm, and will feature Nudelman’s latest book of poetry, True as Moonlight, which was published by Guernica this past spring.

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.

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.
