Barbara Berman reads from her new poetry collection, Currents.

Praise for Currents

The reach of these graceful, ambitious poems ranges across stars, cities, storms. Their music is both political and deeply private, braiding the two undersongs together in challenging and sometimes wrenching poetry. These are poems to be savored and remembered, touchstones of a felt world. —Eavan Boland, Director of the Creative Writing Program, Stanford University.

Barbara Berman offers up a book of psalms to praise the mysterious and divine. Part Miriam Sagan, part Gretel Ehrlich, this is a true faith quest with cameos by Thomas Merton, Sojourner Truth and Bruce Chatwin. —Richard Peabody, Editor of Gargoyle Magazine
