Russian-born poet Ilya Kaminsky, hard of hearing since the age of four, is the author of Deaf Republic, a 2019 National Book Award finalist. Garth Greenwell wrote “Deaf Republic is a dramatic masterwork, a parable-in-poems that confronts the darkness of war and terror with the blazing light of ‘a poet in love with the world.’ ” The BBC selected Kaminsky as “one of the 12 artists that changed the world” in 2019.
Russian-born poet Ilya Kaminsky headlines the Nightbird poetry reading, to be held virtually on Zoom and hosted by poet Teri Ellen Cross Davis. Presented live, the evening includes Howard County Poetry Out Loud contest winners and an audience question and answer session. The pre-show begins at 7:20 p.m. Tickets, https://ci.ovationtix.com/32275/performance/10673149
