In tandem with CARe's Doug Adams Gallery Online exhibition Draw me after you: a visual Song of Songs, join poets Peter Cole and Nate Klug for a discussion on poetry, spirituality, and the Song of Songs. Peter will also read from his forthcoming book of poems, Draw Me After (Farrar, Straus, Giroux, 2022).
MacArthur Fellow Peter Cole is one of the foremost Jewish poets and translators in the English-speaking world. Born in 1957 in Paterson, New Jersey, for much of the past four decades he has lived in Jerusalem. He is the author of five books of poems and many volumes of translation from Hebrew and Arabic. Cole’s most recent collection, Hymns & Qualms: New and Selected Poems and Translations, was published by Farrar, Straus and Giroux in 2017. He had a volume out last year, On Being Drawn, a collaboration with artist Terry Winters, and a new poetry collection, Draw Me After, is forthcoming next year (also with FSG).
Nate Klug is the author, most recently, of Hosts and Guests (Princeton Series of Contemporary Poets, 2021). He works as a Congregationalist minister and lives in Massachusetts.
