Northern California artist and author Hyla Bolsta will be at Gallery Bookshop on Wednesday June 27 at 6:30 to read from her new book The Illuminated Kaddish: Interpretations of the Mourner's Prayer. Bolsta's book is her personal interpretation of the Kaddish, the Jewish prayer of mourning, expressed in poetic text and lavish artwork. The Kaddish is not only for mourners. For readers who want to understand the Kaddish in the context of centuries-old Jewish tradition, this book revitalizes its meaning and relevance to contemporary thought.
Bolsta received a BFA in Fine Arts and Graphics from Pratt Institute in New York in 1968 and a Masters in Psychology from Sonoma State University in 1995. She currently lives and works on the Mendocino Coast.
Gallery Bookshop is located at the corner of Main and Kasten Streets in Mendocino.
