Kevin Young is the author of seven books of poems:Ardency: A Chronicle of the Amistad Rebels; Dear Darkness; For the Confederate Dead; Black Maria; Jelly Roll: A Blues; To Repel Ghosts; and Most Way Home, which was selected for the National Poetry Series. Writing of his work, the poet Lucille Clifton has said, “This poet’s gift of storytelling and understanding of the music inherent in the oral tradition of language re-creates for us an inner history which is compelling and authentic and American.”

 

This reading has been made possible with the support of the Jane Flanders Fund and the Marianne Moore Fund for the Study of Poetry.
