Two Acclaimed Poets to Read at APSU September 23rd


Austin Peay State UniversityPoetry, like music, is meant to be heard. The cadence of the spoken words has the ability to quiet the mind, illuminating a depth of feeling for the attuned listener.
At 4:00pm on September 23rd, area residents will get to experience the transcending powers of two of the country’s formidable poets – Kazim Ali and Brett Ralph – during a public reading of their work in room 303 of the Morgan University Center. A book signing will follow.

Ali is the author of two books of poetry, “The Far Mosque” and “The Fortieth Day.” He was the winner of the Alice James Books’ New England/New York Award, and his poetry has been featured in national journals such as Best American Poetry 2007, American Poetry Review, Boston Review and Barrow Street.
