Her poems have appeared in a wide range of journals and anthologies, including The Paris Review, The New Yorker, The Norton Anthology of Jewish-American Literature, and The Best American Poetry. Jackie will read from her latest series of poems in which she attempts to understand religion as a unifying influence, which connects believers of different faiths to one another. Jackie will also share the influence of her own religion on her poetry.
