Literary Partners Program: Launch of CAPITALS –A Poetry Anthology on the Capital Cities of the World
Jan 5, 2017 | 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
CAPITALS, a ‘blazing new international poetry anthology’ on the capital cities of the world edited by Abhay K. (Bloomsbury) will be launched at Poets House with the readings by the contributing poets – Alfred Corn, Jonathan Cohen, Annie Finch, Ladan Osman, Denize Lauture, ko ko Thett, and Lola Koundakjian, among others. Abhay K. will be in conversation with Burt Kimmelman on various aspects of the anthology.
CAPITALS is a lyrical extravaganza, evocative of personal experiences and unique insights. It embodies a medley of harmonious notes struck across the globe, resulting in the confluence of poignant imagery and soulful verse. A remarkable anthology to acquaint oneself intimately with the capital cities of the world, it describes in exquisite detail their undulating terrains and pulsating lifelines and cities beckoning even the most seasoned traveler with promises of discovery. It makes one to leave behind the trepidations of the unknown and the comforts of home to set out to experience the world anew, on a journey for the soul.
This program is made possible through the Poets House Literary Partners Program.
