In the Beginning Was the Word: Women Writers of Faith

  • Date: Monday, March 16, 2015
  • Time: 7:00pm8:30pm

In her book The Nakedness of the Fathers, poet Alicia Ostriker writes, “By the time the spiritual imagination of women has expressed itself as fully and variously as that of men, to be sure, whatever humanity means by God, religion, holiness, and truth will be completely transformed.” This multigenre reading and panel discussion, part of the Berkshire Festival of Women Writers, will feature four Berkshire women writers—with backgrounds in Christianity, Judaism, and Buddhism—whose work is influenced by their faith, either overtly or just beneath the surface. The participants, Rachel Barenblat, Hannah Fries, Liz Goodman, and Sokunthary Svay, will each give a short reading and speak about the intertwining of their life in writing and their life in faith.
