Ruth Steinberg is Hannah Stone’s guest for Nowt but Verse on Friday 23rd July.
Ruth describes herself as a Geordie Jewish woman, brought up in Newcastle upon Tyne in the1950s. She is a writer and storyteller, who has crafted a one woman show, ‘A Flower is Not a Rat’, an inviting weave of Jewish tales, Yiddish songs, and poems. With local poet Terry Simpson she is involved in an on-going collaboration, exploring the common ground they have shared for over 30 years and their differences, (he is a Yorkshire-born gentile), using song, poetry, story and jokes. Join us as usual for an entertaining lunchtime poetry chat.
