Writing Now / Reading Now: Ilya Kaminsky
Tuesday, September 10
5:30 P.M. Reception | 6:00 P.M. Poetry Reading | McKnight Art Center Atrium
Come hear the most wildly praised poetry book of the year, Deaf Republic, by the Soviet emigre and dazzling American poet Ilya Kaminsky. Part fairy-tale, part political parable, this work of "profound imagination" (The New Yorker) conjures a town where the people go deaf in solidarity with a deaf boy shot by military police. A timeless story that speaks uniquely to our time.
Writing Now/Reading Now is cosponsored by the WSU Department of English, Fairmount College of Liberal Arts & Sciences, Watermark Books & Café, and the Ulrich Museum of Art.
