American Jewish Poetry

Professors Michael Shapiro and Elizabeth Klein Shapiro

Tuesdays, April 1 and 8, 2014



American-Jewish poets address all of the problems that we as American Jews struggle with in our daily lives. These include problems of faith, identity, Israel, gender, politics, and anti-Semitism. Explore and clarify these issues through the medium of poetry with the dynamic Shapiro family duo.


Michael Shapiro is a retired Professor of English at the University of Illinois. He has taught at Reading (England), Cornell, Tamkang (Taiwan), and Loyola (Chicago), where he is currently a Visiting Professor.

Elizabeth Klein Shapiro is an award winning novelist, essayist and poet. She is the winner of several Illinois Arts Council fellowships, and a recipient of two IAC Literary Awards.
