Weaving together a new heart for intercultural life and mission
Sister Irene Zimmerman
Poetry Reading Dec. 5
Sister Irene Zimmerman’s recent book of poetry, Where God Is at Home, has received enthusiastic reviews and endorsements from readers like Father James Martin, SJ. On Thursday, December 5, enjoy the opportunity to hear the author read her work at a special event sponsored by Alfons Gallery.
From 10-11 a.m. in St. Joseph Hall, Sister Irene will read selected works and Sister Mary Anne Albert will share the scripture passages upon which the poems are based.
There will be an opportunity to discuss the poems with Sister Irene, ask questions about her creative process, and reflect on the photographs by the late James Stephen Behrens, OCSO, a Trappist monk and author, that appear alongside Sister Irene’s poems.
Books will be available for purchase, and Sister Irene will be signing copies at the conclusion of the event. This event is free and open to the public. All are welcome!
St. Joseph Hall is located at 1501 S. Layton Blvd. (Greenfield Avenue at S. 27th Street) in Milwaukee. For more information, contact Valerie Christell at 414- 385-5273.
