A Conversation with Jacqueline Osherow

Dec 1, 2015

Poet Jacqueline Osherow was raised in Philadelphia, where she says Hebrew school instilled in her the idea that words really, really matter. She remembers listening to the Psalms, but it wasn’t until she came to Utah that she finally understood the passage, “I will lift my eyes to the mountains, where help will come.” Tuesday, the University of Utah professor of English and Creative Writing joins Doug to talk about poetry, Judaism, Italian art, and much more.
