Poetry for Isaac and Ishmael

What does poetry have to say to Isaac and Ishmael, Jew and Palestinian? More than one might expect. Certainly more than I expected.

Poet Elana Bell has taught poetry to educators, prisoners, and high school students. Some of those students are in New York City, where Bell is writer-in-residence at the Bronx Academy of Letters.

Others live in Israel.

And Palestine.

And it all comes together in Eyes, Stones: Poems.
