The Holocaust Center of Pittsburgh will host a poetry reading by local poet Judith (Judy) Robinson at the monthly Café Europa program on Monday, Feb. 24, at 1 p.m. at the Jewish Community Center in Squirrel Hill. She will be reading her poetry as a part of the 3 Perspectives: An Attempt to Understand exhibition that will be on display at the JCC through early March.
Café Europa is a program specifically for members of the Holocaust Survivors Organization of Pittsburgh and gives members a time to meet with Holocaust Center staff, hear guest speakers, participate in activities and enjoy refreshments and socializing. This program was launched in the summer of 2012 by the Holocaust Center in response to the survivors’ request for more social and informational programming for their group members.

Robinson was editor of Living Inland, is author of the Beautiful Wife and Other Stories and the poetry editor of Signatures. She currently teaches poetry at Carnegie Mellon University. She is the editor of Only the Sea Keeps: Poetry of the Tsunami (Bayeux Arts), and co-editor, with Michael Wurster, of Along These Rivers: Poetry and Photography from Pittsburgh (Quadrant).
