Goldstein to Perform Poetry
“Postcards from Romania: A Journey” is a program of poetry and sound to be performed by faculty member and poet Joan Goldstein, Ph.D., and musician John Burkhalter III, at Barnes & Noble Bookstore, Princeton Marketfair on Tuesday, April 5 at 7 p.m., during National Poetry Month.

A poet, artist and sociologist, Goldstein's work reflects images of Eastern Europe. These poems were written since her return from her "roots" journey to Romania last year. One poem recalls the story of her powerful, Romanian immigrant great-uncle who became the sparring partner for the great boxer Jack Johnson.

John Burkhalter will play musical sounds scored to Goldstein’s poetry, including an acorino which Goldstein brought back from the Peasant Museum in Bucharest.
