FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Takes Readers on a Spiritual Road Trip from Athens to Jerusalem
HOBOKEN, NJ (November 1, 2010):
Poets Wear Prada is pleased to announce the release of Philadelphian native B. E. Kahn's LANDSCAPES OF LIGHT. 24 poems take you on spiritual road trip from Athens to Jerusalem, intertwining Greek, Arabic and Jewish cultures, the ever present past, ancients myths and legends, tradition, relics and the transient present of our "gifted days." All the while Kahn's strong voice, a bright & steady beacon, illuminates as she observes, reflects and questions, guiding the reader through sometime painful histories to the future possibilities, reminding us that "Our language differs, but smiles, gestures carry our thoughts across the wire of our minds." The inviting front cover illustration "Let’s go to Greece," is by Lila Rostenberg of Fayetteville, Arkansas..
