Join us for the return of our Midday Arts Series, presented in collaboration with the Intellectual Heritage program. This program will feature an interview with poet and writer Elaine Goldstein Terranova, CLA ‘61, led by Rebecca Alpert, professor of religion emerita at Temple University. Terranova will also read from her memoir, The Diamond Cutter’s Daughter.
Terranova donated her papers to the Libraries’ Special Collections Research Center. They that document her career as a poet, writer, editor, and teacher. Stop by Charles Library in October to view an accompanying pop-up exhibit of her papers in the Albert M. Greenfield Special Collections Research Center Reading Room.
We also invite you to save the date and join us for our online book club discussion of The Diamond Cutter’s Daughter on Thursday, October 6 at noon.
