Please join us for a reading by multi-genre writer Kazim Ali, and a conversation between Ali and Amherst College Visiting Writer Thirii Myint. Ali’s books include several volumes of poetry, novels, essays, and translations. He is currently a Professor of Literature at the University of California, San Diego. His newest books include a collection of three long poems entitled The Voice of Sheila Chandra and a memoir of his Canadian childhood, Northern Light: Power, Land, and the Memory of Water.
“Much of what the poet has presented to us is painful, yes, but it is also beautiful in how it uses voice as a symbol for continued imagination. Altogether, The Voice of Sheila Chandra is both an excavation and compilation of our survival.” – NPR
