Today, host Marcela Sulak reads the poetry of Anat Levin, who was born in Israel to a mother of Russian descent from Tashkent, Uzbekistan, and a father from Kornitz, Belarus. Her debut book of poems, Revolving Anna, was published in 2008, and won the Ministry of Culture Award for Poetry that year. Here is an excerpt from the poem "Oh Mother":

"And it was said:honour thy father and thy motherand they will honour you with twice as much spankingand with two good blows on the backsideso that thy days will be longand pleasant upon the earthand aching under the blankets..."

A graduate of the film and television department at Hunter College in New York, Levin worked for many years as a commercial writer for a large law firm in Israel. She now lives in Givatayim with her husband, the poet Adi Assis. Marcela ends by reading Levin's poetry from the 2011 social justice protests.
