Artbook @ MoMA PS1 presents the launch of Joy Ladin's 'Shekhinah Speaks'

Saturday, June 11, from 3–5 PM, Artbook @ MoMA PS1 Bookstore and Selva Oscura Press present a launch, discussion and signing of Joy Ladin's new book, Shekhinah Speaks. Ladin will be in conversation with Gregg Bordowitz, moderated by Fred Moten.
The event will take place in person at Artbook @ MoMA PS1 Bookstore and will stream on Instagram Live @artbookps1. Please pre-order signed copies of the book here and register for the event here.

Artbook @ MoMA PS1 presents the launch of  Joy Ladin's 'Shekhinah Speaks'

"In this new collection, Joy Ladin wondrously records the reports of the Shekhinah, the feminine aspect of G-d, an extremely important figure in Judaism. Each poem in Shekhinah Speaks swirls and surges with differing velocities, alternately ferocious and tender flowing as a timeless continuous present. In Ladin's work, the Shekhinah has much to say about our current conditions and challenges. The poetry is earthly, ethereal, and full of soul. Very few writers in any form defeat the distinction between subject and predicate so thoroughly as Joy Ladin. This is an enormously significant contribution to poetry, and theology, an extension of Ladin's breathtaking volume Psalms."
—Gregg Bordowitz

Please find our current Covid-19 guidelines here. In addition, masks must be worn during the seated portion of the event.

Joy Ladin is the author of ten books of poetry, including 2022's Shekhinah Speaks, National Jewish Book Award winner The Book of Anna, and Lambda Literary Award finalists Impersonation and Transmigration. She has also published a memoir of gender transition, Through the Door of Life, and a groundbreaking work of trans theology, The Soul of the Stranger: Reading God and Torah from a Transgender Perspective. Her work has been recognized with a National Endowment of the Arts fellowship and a Fulbright Scholarship, among other honors. Her work is available at wordpress.joyladin.com.
