Exploring the Jewish Experience through Creativity, with Joy Cohen
Joy Cohen will read from 37, her debut novel; share her process and her writing; and delve into some of the themes she has addressed through her creative work: the Jewish experience, identity, oppression, resilience, freedom and the power of art. Joy has had a varied career as an award-winning writer and educator. She is the author of three published works of non-fiction and three plays: Anna’s Journal, Almonds and Raisins and Of the Better Kind (commissioned to capture the story of the Lost Shul Mural). Her primary focus has been on the arts, wellness, the environment and social justice. Before becoming a writer, she was a middle school science and art teacher and an adjunct at UVM, where she developed and led graduate courses on the creative process and social justice and equity. Born in Brooklyn and back often, Joy now lives in rural Vermont, where she grows, prepares and loves to share plant-based foods that are healthy for the body and the planet. (“And quite delicious, too,” she adds. “You should try my vegan babka!”) Thursday, November 18 at noon via Zoom
