Cohen Publishes New Poetry Book Based on Arcadia Course

By Caitlin Burns | January 18, 2017

Marion Cohen, adjunct professor of Mathematics, has taken her in-class discussions and transformed them into a work of poetry with the release of her 27th book, Truth and Beauty.

Published by WordTech Editions, the chapbook explores how students and teacher relate to each other in life experiences. Cohen said that each poem draws from discussions in class and homework assigns, even some as far back as eight years ago.

In celebration of the new release, Cohen will headline The Arthur Krasnow Poets and Poetry Series at Elkins Park Free Library on Wednesday, Feb. 8 at 7 p.m. She will read selections from Truth and Beauty, as well as work from some of her previous books.
