Literary Partners Program: Being in Between: A Poetry Reading by Yolanda Koumidou

Apr 13, 2019 | 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Join us for a rich program composed of poetry and music.

Yolanda Koumidou will read from her latest poetry collection, Being in Between. To read a poem in this collection, the poet’s sixth, is to bear witness to the moment of unveiling secrets from the subterranean veins of the human psyche. A dazzling glimpse of what is usually hidden—or it might be deeply comforting, conveying a premonition, a hint, of unspeakable truth.

The late Greek-Cypriot Nobel-nominated poet, Kostas Montis, wrote about Yolanda, “…The poet talks to us with sincerity and the directness and compactness of her verse does not affect its simplicity.”

The reading will offer space for pondering and dialogue with a short musical intermission. The program will conclude with a book signing.

This event is made possible through Poets House’s Literary Partners Program. Poets House is an ADA accessible facility.

Admission Free and open to the public
