Abayomi Animashaun at the Bowery Poetry Club

Tomorrow at 2pm, BLP poet  Abayomi Animashaun will read from his collection The Giving of Pears at the Bowery Poetry Club! This collection won the 2008 Hudson Prize, and has received all kinds of praise. Naomi Shihab Nye, a Chancellor of the Academy of American Poets, writes “Abayomi Animashaun’s poems hum inside like a good cocktail. When he invokes, ‘Lead us into that pure elegance,’ he is cherishing cities, foods, colors, human histories of passion and hope, with a lush affection and rich attention. These poems are blessings to the spirit. Their vivid, magical powers of witness lift up the world.”

See you there!

Saturday, October 2, 2pm at the Bowery Poetry Club: 308 Bowery, NYC. $6 at the door.
