One of the perks of my "day job" at The City University of New York is proximity to an amazing array of creative writing programs, events, and talents. Today I am scheduled to meet with poet Grace Schulman, a Distinguished Professor at CUNY's Baruch College. I've been reading some of Professor Schulman's work lately, and am especially moved by her poem "Kol Nidrei: September 2001," which presents a particularly Jewish perspective on life in New York just after the September 11 attacks. It's an incredible piece.
